God likely using COVID-19 to punish corrupt politicians – Activist
An activist, Olusegun Bamgbose, Esq. says God could be using the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) to judge and punish corrupt politicians in Nigeria.
He stated this Sunday while reacting to the demise of Senator for Ogun East in the 8th Senate, Buruji Kashamu.
Kashamu succumbed to COVID-19 complications at the First Cardiology Consultants, a Lagos-based hospital on Saturday.
Before him, late Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari, and former Oyo State Governor, Senator Abiola Ajimobi also died of COVID-19 complications.
Reacting, Bamgbose described Kashamu’s death as a big loss to Ogun State and Nigeria as a whole, adding that it was sad that the nation was losing such influential personalities at this inopportune time in its history.
Bamgbose, who is the National Coordinator of Concerned Advocates for Good Governance (CAGG), commiserated with the friends and family of the deceased.
However, he told Daily Post, “The candid advice for our leaders and politicians is for them to keep their hands clean, as life is transient.
“They should stop looting the treasury, as if money can stop death when it comes. The former Chief of Staff to the President, Abba Kyari is gone.
“Former Governor of Oyo State is no more. Two former Managing Directors of NNPC are late, these are rich individuals but today they are down below No one knows the next person.
“One will implore our political leaders to know that, wealth can’t stop death. Money has its limitations. We shall be remembered for what we have done. Let’s serve the people with the fear of God.
“These reckless looting must come to an end.”
