Popular Afrobeat singer Seun Kuti has rejected the peace walk invitation of the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
Recall that on Tuesday, the Lagos governor invited popular entertainers, and human rights activists to join him as he leads a “walk for peace” in December.
According to the governor, the walk is meant to foster peace after the October 20, 2020 shooting of unarmed EndSARS protesters at Lekki Tollgate.
Those invited were the likes of Seun Kuti, Debo Adedayo (Mr Macaroni), Folarin Falana( Falz), Dele Farotimi, Temitope Majekodunmi, Segun Awosanya (Segalinks), and Adetoun (Just Detoun).
Falz and Macaroni have since rejected the invite and asked Sawno-Olu to first implement the panel’s recommendation.
Also reacting to the invite during an interview with Channels TV, Kuti declined the invite.
He said, “I don’t need to walk next to the governor before there is peace in Lagos; there has been peace in Lagos for many years and nobody has to walk anywhere for it.
“If there is justice, then we can discuss peace. In fact, there will be no need to walk for peace because justice itself is the walk of peace. The governor should walk the walk he is talking about by giving us justice.”
