Seun Kuti has spoken up about Omoyele Sowore’s arrest, condemning Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu for the arrest of the former presidential aspirant.
Speaking on Sowore’s arrest before his planned protest, Seun Kuti during a arecent interview said; “It is a shame that an administration with Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu will lock somebody up when he’s the leader of that party that is ruling, for saying Revolution Now, knowing the history of NADECO, the role that he played, and where we all came from, from 1993 till date, I think it was a bit harsh.”
“The only thing I told Sowore was that he needed a bit more time to take people along. You can’t do revolution on the people’s behalf. You have to do your revolution with the people.”
Seun Kuti also revealed that he can never accept a political appointment from the current administration.
“I can’t take a political appointment in an oppressive system.”
“There’s a Yoruba proverb that says that the only discussion the cockroach and the chicken can have is inside the stomach of the chicken.”
