Singer, Seun Kuti has revealed that the federal government is yet to compensate or apologize to his family.
Seun Kuti made this known during a recent interview. According to him, its a shame that Nigeria is still being ruled by a leader that his father talked about 35 years ago. He revealed that the Federal government is yet t0 compensate or tender an apology to his family. Speaking on Omoyele Sowore, publisher of Sahara reporters and human right activist, the singer said he is a huge supporter of the activist ideas and that they have a lot in common.
In his words:
“IT’S A SHAME THAT WE’RE STILL RULED BY THE SAME PEOPLE MY FATHER WAS TALKING ABOUT 35 YEARS AGO OR SOMETHING, THAT’S POOR. WE NEED TO DO BETTER,MY FATHER SAID EVERYTHING HE HAD TO ABOUT BUHARI. HE’S A KIND PERSON THAT YOU DON’T NEED TO GO FAR TO FIND OUT WHAT MY FATHER THOUGHT ABOUT HIM.
BUHARI IS ONE PERSON, YOU KNOW BUT I FEEL THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT STILL OWES THE KUTI FAMILY AN APOLOGY, NOT JUST MY DAD, AND COMPENSATION.SOWORE’S CAUSE IS NIGERIA’S CAUSE, THE PEOPLE’S CAUSE. THIS OUR DEMAGOGUERY THAT WE LIKE IN NIGERIA, TRYING TO MAKE A DEMAGOGUE OF SOWORE IS THE WRONG WAY TO APPROACH THE ISSUE. I’M A HUGE SUPPORTER OF HIS IDEAS BUT THEY’RE NOT EXCLUSIVELY TIED TO HIM. SOWORE AND I HAVE A LOT IN COMMON.”
