What my late father suffered in hands of Buhari is too much for me to ever dream of voting for Buhari to become Nigeria president again. No! never!!!.
Seun Kuti has sworn never to vote for General Mohammadu Buhari as the 2015 general elections draws near. The last son of the legendary Fela Anikulapo Kuti told Tribune that he hasn’t forgotten what his father suffered in the hands of General Mohammadu Buhari and the late Tunde Idiagbon when he was the former was the Military Head of State of Nigeria, and would therefore not vote for him.
“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,” he said.
“I will only urge Nigerians, especially her youths, to come out en-mass 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 grudge.
“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.”
