I will stand firm in the fight against bad governance – Femi Kuti – Arise News

“Anyone who wins elections will always meet determined people like me to oppose bad governance and that will continue until Nigeria becomes the country it should be” – Femi Kuti – Musician and Political Activist

“Nigeria’s path has failed over the past 20 years. I am in a country that has deteriorated all my life; Nigeria has no excuse for being in the predicament we find ourselves in today.

Kuti believes President Buhari’s impeachment should have happened a long time ago as he proved he did not have the answers to the problems facing Nigeria.

Kuti says, “No one is safe anymore, there are so many forces trying to disrupt next year’s elections. If the elections do not take place, we are giving this government an excuse to retain power.

About the presidential candidates, Kuti says: “I have reservations about everyone, I am not convinced by anyone in the political arena”. He adds that although he does not wish to name anyone, he will continue to fight for Nigeria through his music.

Regarding the joint ASUU-NLC rally, Kuti says, “I don’t see where NLC has had a meaningful and successful strike to move this country forward.” He adds, “Nigeria should have the best universities in Africa, but bad governments brought us here.

Despite “everyone still votes for the people Fela opposed in his lifetime”, and the injustice the Kuti family faced,” Kuti says, “I believe there is hope , we cannot abandon Nigeria or Africa”.

Kuti believes that “Nigeria’s path has failed over the past 20 years. I am in a country that has deteriorated all my life; Nigeria has no excuse for being in the predicament we find ourselves in today.

Responding to the question of whether he felt the burden of being Fela’s first son, he said, “I never saw it as a burden, I just wanted to play music to express myself.”
