Seun Kuti has called out the Lagos state government over the ban of Okada (Motorcycles) used in transporting passengers around the state.
The award-winning music star took to his Instagram page on Tuesday, February 4, 2020, where he expressed his disappointment at the government over its decision on suspending the use of Okada as a means of transportation in the state.
“Nigerian professionals have shown their true colors again as largely oppressors in waiting. Children dying in the hospital every day they don’t care. Miseducated and undereducated children they don’t care. Police brutality, no outrage but tell them to walk from bus stop to the office oh no the worst has happened!!!
“If u wish for your children or loved ones to be Okada and Keke riders please raise up your hand! We know these ain’t jobs. We pacify those we have failed with slave labor and slave wages and we are ready to fight for them to continue slaving away!! #getthesax,” he wrote.
