Peter Obi does not pay tax - Seun Kuti cries out


Afrobeat singer, Seun Kuti, has alleged that a former Anambra State governor and presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi, and his family do not pay tax to the Anambra State Government.

This comes in the heat of the ongoing political debate between Kuti and Peter Okoye otherwise known as Mr P of Psquare, regarding the best candidate for Nigeria in the forthcoming presidential election.

Kuti in an interview with the online platform Mic On podcast hosted by Channels TV’s Seun Okinbaloye, on Monday, described Obi as the “internet’s favourite and a capitalist and an opportunist who can’t deliver Nigeria”.

However, his remarks about Obi, angered Mr P, who had since then taken to his Twitter and Instagram handles to berate Seun and the Kuti family.

“Dude just erased his father’s history. You said only the people of Nigeria could save Nigeria. Is PO and the rest candidates, not the Nigerian people? SHAME SHAME SHAME,” Mr P wrote in a now-deleted tweet.

Responding in a viral video seen by our correspondent on Thursday, Kuti said the LP flag bearer and his family left Anambra state underdeveloped while investing the money made in Nigeria in Panama.

Kuti said, “Why is Obi family’s money in Panama? He said the money belong to his family. Whose family is supposed to be paying tax to Anambra State if not Obi’s?

“Obi’s family with all their money, they’re not paying tax in Anambra state, that’s why Anambra cannot have good roads, good schools, and good hospitals. Because rich people in Anambra like Obi hide their money in Panama far away from the Nigerian government.

“If Obi loves Nigeria, why is his family hiding money away from us to tax? Panama is a tax haven, any money in Panama, the Nigerian people cannot see (access) it to benefit our lives, meanwhile, he’s making his money in Nigeria, and has no business in Panama.

“How many businesses does Obi have in Panama? He makes all his money in Nigeria and hides it in Panama, but you people excuse that away. Seun cannot make April Fool’s joke, but Obi can hide money in Panama.

“PSquare can play for all the presidents – Jonathan, they were there, Buhari, they were there, now it’s Obi, and they’re in. Where is the consistency? You have no consistency.

“Your boss is hiding money in Panama, he doesn’t want to be taxed. He doesn’t love this country. He should bring his money let’s tax him.

“All my money is in Nigeria. Every cent. Whenever I’m done with my shows, I do tell my partners to bring my monies to me and I bring everything to Nigeria.
