Senator Ibikunle Amosun, former Governor of Ogun State, has described the late Senator Buruji Kashamu as a man with uncommon doggedness who couldn’t not be easily ignored.
The former Governor disclosed this in a condolence message signed by his media assistant, Bola Adeyemi.
Amosu, the Senator representing Ogun Central Senatorial District at the National Assembly also described late Kashamu as an enigmatic politician who will be remembered for his assertive presence in the political arena.
The statement read, “The Senator representing Ogun Central District at the Red Chamber, Senator Ibikunle Amosun, has expressed sadness over the death, today, of a leading politician and stakeholder of Ogun State extraction, Senator Buruji Kashamu, aged 62.
“Death, once again, has robbed us of the contribution of an enigmatic politician of the PDP, who represented Ogun East Senatorial District at the 8th Senate, our dear brother Senator Buruji Kashamu.
“Although we belonged to different political persuasions, and disagreed on most issues, Senator Kashamu will nonetheless be remembered for his assertive presence in the political arena and uncommon doggedness.
“He fought myriad of wars with every breadth in his soul in the defence of whatever he believed in and for his personal freedom. Hate him or love him, he could not be easily ignored.
“Senator Amosun prayed that the Almighty Allah, will forgive Kashamu’s earthly sins and give him eternal rest.
“He expressed condolences to the nuclear and political family members of the late founder and financier of the Omo Ilu Foundation, the Ijebu Igbo Community, and Ogun State as a whole.”
