Gbenga Daniel, who is the former Governor of Ogun State, has revealed the last wish of the ex-senator Buruji Kashamu, saying his desire was to make peace with everybody, including those he didn’t agree with politically.
Governor Daniel Gbenga stated this when he paid a visit to the deceased family at Ijebu-Igbo.
The ex-senator, who was the governorship candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), dies of COVID-19 on Saturday.
His burial took place on Sunday at his residence.
In a statement signed by Olivide, Steve, who is his media aide, revealed that Kashamu sent a delegation on Wednesday, three days before his death.
“Buruji sent a delegation to me last Wednesday, August 4, 2020, who came to discuss with me about his wish that I should provide further leadership for the political structure which he built and has nurtured over the years.
“When the representatives, which included his lawyer came, I discouraged political discussion and pleaded with them to all go and pray for his survival. Unfortunately, he passed on a few days after.
“We’re mourning a great man. His wish was to make peace with everyone before his death. As a human, you must have strong friends and strong enemies.”
