The governor of Ogun State, Prince Dapo Abiodun, has described Late Buruji Kashamu as a man with a large heart, saying “posterity will accord him his due recognition for his legacies of service and forthrightness.”
In a statement on Saturday by his Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin, Governor Abiodun said Kashamu’s death was a devastating blow to the nation’s political family.
Governor Abiodun said he received the sad news with deep pain and grief that words cannot capture.
According to him, Kashamu’s demise has further diminished the tribe of his close political associates, stressing that “he was a large-hearted politician and courageous fighter for whatever cause he believed in.”
He explained that the late Senator was a loving personality, a generous giver, someone who lived for others and a beacon of hope of a better tomorrow to many.
The Governor maintained that Kashamu, who died of COVID-19, was a phenomenon, faithful to his principles and convictions.
“He was a worthy Ambassador of Ogun State.
“May Allah forgive and admit him to Aljannah Firdaus,” he said.
