Afrobeat musician and activist Seun Kuti has called on the Federal Government to listen to protesters across the nation and meet their demands and avoid taking decisions based on the belief that it had the trust of the people.
Speaking on Channels’ TV Sunday politics, the singer stated that the government does not fully get what is being demanded and what the protest is about.
“This government should not act as if people trust them. They should not wear that toga for themselves. That is what I am saying.
“People should not sit in their high offices in Abuja. Bring yourself off your high horse. Come and relate with the people that just voted for you. Come and really hear what is going on.
“They have done judicial enquiry against SARS two years ago, what came out of it? It was this same government.”
On claims of the protest being hijacked, Seun Kuti said;
“Don’t feel victimized, don’t think there is somebody trying to get you. No. These are your people trying to talk to you.
“This is actually a moment that we can actually build a bridge (between the government and the people), but they don’t want to hear that.”
