Occupy Nigeria: Seun Kuti’s official statement

Son of the late Afro Beat Musician Seun Kuti has vowed to continue the struggle for the economic emancipation of the Nigerian people. Seun made this known in a statement issued earlier today in Lagos. The full text of the statement is as follows:

I hereby restate that Goodluck Jonathan & his cohorts must listen 2 d voice of d people & go back 2 former price of N65, nothing higher is acceptable for the masses. Subsequently, government MUST cut wasteful spending by cutting all salaries & allowances of ALL officials by 75%. The Nigerian people cannot continue to suffer in d midst of plenty. Furthermore, d so-called cabal MUST be prosecuted & must face d full wrath of the law because NO NIGERIAN SHOULD BE ABOVE THE LAW! This agitation has gone beyond organised labor, Nigerians are speaking in one voice. Finally, I hereby restate my commitment to the struggle for the economic emancipation of the Nigerian people & will rally everyday against fuel subsidy removal until government bends 2 d people’s wishes.
