#EndSARS: Seun Kuti revives Fela’s Movement of the People..

— calling for good governance!

Nigerian Musician, Seun Kuti who is also the youngest son of the late famous afrobeat pioneer Fela Kuti, has revived a political movement of his father, the Movement of the People, as part of his drive to call for better governance in the country, as well as an end to police brutality.

Kuti while addressing the press on Tuesday at the Kalakuta Museum in the Ikeja area of Lagos, said the days in which members of his family were being harassed by security operatives appear to have returned.

It will be recalled that the same political party, the Movement of the People, was first formed by his late father, and ran unsuccessfully for the presidency of Nigeria. Five years later he was jailed for 20 months on charges of currency smuggling. Upon his release, he turned away from the active political protest and left his son to carry the torch.

Following this development, Seun Kuti has collaborated with other coalitions and groups of like minds and vision to revive the movement of the people.

He vowed to mobilize citizens to rise and defend their rights under the aegis of the revived movement.

Following this development, the Nigerian police sent a threat letter to the afrobeat croner on the proposed rally to officially launch the movement thereby threatening to seal off the African Shrine, the proposed venue for the kick-off event, if the rally and meeting hold as planned.

But against all odds, Seun and other like-mind groups still addressed the press seeking the support of the press to help propagate what the government felt could be a threat to them.
“How can we run a democracy when the citizens are not free to protest or have freedom of speech, this is not done and we are tired of this ride and rule, we need to make a difference and that is what the present government is avoiding hence their threat to stop us,” Seun told us in a chat.

Speaking further on the mission of the MOP, Seun stressed further that even if the government refuses to register the movement, they are ready to continue preaching good governance to the people and this will be registered in the mind of the people which is the most important thing.

We will keep you updated with more details as more events are expected to unfold.
