Why Peter Obi An Opportunist, Can’t Save Nigeria – Seun Kuti [VIDEO]

Seun Kuti, the last son of Afrobeat legend Fela Kuti, has explained why Labour Party presidential candidate Peter Obi “cannot save the country” if elected in the upcoming general elections.

Kuti stated that only the Nigerian people can save the country.

On Monday, Kuti was a guest on the online platform Mic On podcast, hosted by Channels Television’s Seun Okinbaloye.



He explained that even if his close ally and preferred presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore of the African Action Congress (AAC), wins, he (Sowore) will find it difficult to implement his goodwill policies in a National Assembly dominated by the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and the All Progressives Congress (APC).


“Even if Sowore wins, who is my perfect friend? How will he operate in PDP and APC-controlled states, or PDP and APC-controlled senate and house of reps? How is he going to run this country the way that he feels that he should run it for the betterment of the majority of the people?


“He is my friend. Of all the candidates, he is the one I prefer. But no president can save Nigeria,” he said.


Obi is the internet’s favorite, according to Kuti.

He noted that even if he won, Obi might not accomplish much because he didn’t have time to plan a strategy for governing the country.

He said, “He hasn’t had the time because he started too late. You can’t be telling me that just because you lost PDP primaries 18 months before the election, you suddenly started a movement, and you have a plan for the country.

“No, that’s opportunism. And it’s not an opportunist that will deliver Nigeria—not jumping on Labour Party. The Labour Party has a socialist structure. Peter Obi is a capitalist. Where are they going?”
