Son of the late Music legend Fela Kuti,Seun Kuti have expressed failure of the government in meeting the aspirations of the youth. He commented on a facebook post by Senator Babafemi Ojudu who is the former Special Adviser Political Matters to the President , and aide to His Excellency, Vice President, Professor Yemi Osinbajo.
Babafemi Ojudu took exception to an earlier assertion by Malam El-Rufai where El-Rufai berated the Northern elites and governors for the neglect and backwardness of the region and called for immediate actions to be taken to bridge the gap between the prosperous south and the impoverish north.
Babafemi Ojudu in a facebook post titled “El Rufai is Wrong” had noted that the South need not be deceived into beleiving that the region is doing well. He noted that there is an increase in the number of out of school children who are subsequently recruited into “yahoo yahoo” and “yahoo plus”. He also noted that In the face of the neglect, the Governors continue to live in affluence and have turned themselves to demi gods. Seun kuti reponded to the post of Babafemi Ojudu and berated the government for the woes of the youths. See his post below;
“May I ask one question sir. Is it the job of the government to bend our existence to what they want or to strive to meet our potential. If the youths don’t want to farm it’s the job and duty of the leaders to meet their aspirations not say hey all we have is hoe and cutlass. No sir. I strongly disagree. The youths are being failed not the other way around. As u said they aren’t adversed to manual labor as they are fixing potholes so create a viable ministry of works and use their labor to fix the country!!”
Seun Kuti also disagreed with a part of the Ojudu’s write-up where he condemned the efforts of a sitting Governor in the cultivation of marijuana. Seun kuti wrote
“And marijuana farming is the future of mass land cultivation. Whether we see it so in Nigeria or not, the world is moving”
Do you agree with these assertions of Femi Kuti, please share your thoughts
