He fought for his convictions, for the people of Ogun State and for his country.“Senator Kashamu was also a good party man. He was unwavering in his support for his party, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), through all the twists and turns of his political life. His passing is a big loss to the larger political family in Nigeria.

As such, it behoves on us to be kind to the dead.“I mourn with his family, particularly his wives, children and grandchildren. May Almighty Allah lay His hands of protection on them at this moment. I mourn with his friends and associates across the country.
