Femi Anikulapo-Kuti, Nigerian musician and son of the late Afro-beat legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti, has condemned the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, over the postponement of the presidential elections.
Kuti speaking at the New Africa Shrine, Ikeja, Lagos on Sunday while hosting Omoyele Sowore, presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) described the present leaders as ‘bunch of failures’
Femi, then called on young Nigeria to plan for a landslide victory against the corrupt establishment, adding that he is tired.
According to him, “Nigeria needs a government that will not give you excuses; a government that is ready to work immediately it is empowered; a man that is ready to go to the four corners of this country, not that he will be sweating: ‘Hey, I don tire, hospital today, hospital tomorrow.”
Kuti said: “This bunch of people, them yeye no be small. How can you just wake up and say you are not ready? What have you been doing for the past four years?
“This is not the time to plan. They are a bunch of failures.
“The youth must be ready so that there is a landslide in every corner. Nobody must steal again in this country; everybody must have equal opportunity to be successful; one man’s success is everybody’s success.”
Further speaking, Kuti urged Sowore to fulfil all his promises, adding that he is the type of president he would endorse.
“If I’m going to endorse somebody, Sowore is the type of person I will endorse.
“If there is a person I will endorse, I will endorse a young man that will lead a young generation to the future, to provide good schools, to provide good health care, good roads, electricity.
“This country needs this; do this now; every corner of this country. Roads must be fixed; a minimum of five great hospitals; all universities must be of international standards. Nothing less; no excuses.
“A government that will not give you excuses; a government that is ready to work immediately it is empowered; a man that is ready to go to the four corners of this country not that he will be sweating: ‘Hey, I don tire, hospital today hospital tomorrow’.
