Seun Kuti, son of late Afrobeat legend Fela Anikulapo-Kuti has revealed that he can never vote for APC presidential aspirant, General Buhari.
Seun Kuti who is gradually taking after his activist father, the late creator of that genre of music, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, said he will vote against Buhari over what he did to his father 31 years ago.
The youngest son of the late Fela who has consistently thrown heavy jabs at the current government led by President Goodluck Jonathan and even at a point questioned the authenticity of Jonathan’s PHD certificate, seems to have switched more attention to General Buhari who according to him doesn’t deserve his vote.
In a recent chat with Nigerian Tribune, the father of one said;
“Truth is that I have no reason to give my vote to any of the two contestants, but more especially Buhari because of the eternal emotional damage he caused the Kuti family, especially me.”
“I will only urge Nigerians, especially her youths, to come out enmasse to elect the ruler of their choice so that Nigeria’s democracy will continue to grow. As for me though, I will never vote for Buhari because of what he did to my father. It is a personal grouse. Buhari denied me the chance of seeing my father in the early stage of my life. He arrested and detained Fela in Kirikiri for the same number of years I was growing up without a father, and even did not allow his family members to see him on a daily basis. He eventually jailed my father and I will always remember that. He jailed my innocent father on currency trafficking, but he is claiming to be a saint now. “
Seun Kuti who has over time thrown heavy jabs at President Jonathan and condemned the anti-gay bill signed by the president, took a swipe at the General Buhari this time for his role in his father’s imprisonment.
It would be recalled that Seun Kuti last year took it upon himself to lead a protest against the current Boko Haram insurgency and it is quite clear that the afro beat singer isn’t happy with the current government neither is in support of ”change” and the impending government.
