Veteran afrobeat musician, Femi Kuti has said that he declined an invitation by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo to join the All Progressives Congress, APC.

This is contained in a statement he issued on his social media platforms in which the musician clarified his participation in the Occupy Nigeria protest of 2012 which was against the removal of fuel subsidy by the administration of former President Goodluck Jonathan.

His statement comes amid calls for protests over the recent increase in fuel price from N148 to N151 by the regime of the President, Major General Muhammadu Buhari (retd.).

“I want to state for clarity and posterity my role in the Ojota protest,” he tweeted.

“I was invited for what I and many believed was a genuine cause regarding the cost of fuel.

“As soon as I found out it was politically motivated I pulled out. I got a lot of backlash at the time but stood my ground.

“For the record, I have never and will never affiliate with any political party that I don’t feel has the genuine interest of the people of Nigeria at heart.

Even when the VP approached me to join APC, I blatantly refused as I also refused to join PDP or any other political party,” Femi Kuti said.

It should be recalled that Femi Kuti’s father, the late Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo Kuti, was sentenced to five years in prison by the military regime led by Buhari in 1984.
