Nigerian music maestro, Femi Kuti reveals why he ended the Ojota protest of 2012, over the removal of fuel subsidy by the Goodluck Jonathan administration

In tweets he shared following the recent fuel price increment, Femi Kuti said he pulled out of the 2012 protest after he got to know it was politically motivated.

Recalling how the Vice President approached him to join the All Progressives Congress (APC), Femi Kuti stated that he will never affiliate with any political party that he feels doesn’t have the genuine interest of the people of Nigeria at heart.

He tweeted;

I want to state for clarity and posterity my role in the Ojota protest. 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.
