BUSTED!!! Why I Turned Down VP Osinbajo’s Request, Femi Kuti Reveals—The London Born popular Afro-beat musician and son to Legend Fela Kuti said that He turned down a request to join the All Progressive Congress (APC) by VP Yemi Osinbajo.
Femi Kuti made it known on social media that he didn’t accept the offer due to the injustice done on his Late father by the current administration.
He continued that he refused to take part in the Occupy Nigeria protest in 2012 against the President Goodluck Jonathan government because he didn’t believe in any of Nigeria’s two major political party.
“I want to state for clarity and posterity my role in the Ojota protest. I was invited for what I and many believed was a genuine cause regarding the cost of fuel”.
“As soon as I found out it was politically motivated I pulled out. I got a lot of backlash at the time but stood my ground. For the record, I have NEVER and will NEVER affiliate with any political party that I don’t feel has the genuine interest of the people of Nigeria at heart.
“Even when the VP approached me to join APC, I blatantly refused as I also refused to join PDP or any other political party.
“Yes, VP Prof. Osinbanjo. And I refused as I have refused every invitation thus far to join any political party.
“First, my main reason was president Buhari jailing my father in the 80s. Second, I didn’t believe any of the two major political parties had/have the genuine interest of the Nigerian people at heart.”
