What my maker thinks of me is what matters most – Obasanjo replies critics


Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has reacted to the verbal attacks he received from some Nigerians following his reaction to the death of Senator Buruji Kashamu.

Obasanjo said he does not care about what people would say about him when he dies wondering why bad people should be eulogized when they pass on.

The 83 year-old Obasanjo said he grew up in a community that does not eulogize or sing praises for people known with bad character when they were alive.

It would recalled that Obasanjo had reacted to the death of Kashamu, saying that despite using politics to maneuver the law to escape justice, Kashamu could not escape death.

This drew the anger of some Nigerians including the immediate past Governor of Ekiti State, Ayodele Fayose, who stated that Nigerians will watch out for the end of Obasanjo, warning the former President against acting like a saint.

Responding, the former President said, “As you know, I say my mind as truthfully as I know them and in line with my convictions,” as quoted by Premium Times.

“People are free to say whatever they want about my comment. I don’t begrudge people for holding opinions on whatever I say or do.

“Let people say whatever they like when I transit. Now that I am alive, am I not being abused?

“Whenever I transit, let people say whatever they know or think about me. Let them say it as it is. What my maker thinks of me is what matters most.”
