Nigeria’s new president Muhammadu Buhari – the man who jailed Fela Kuti →

Commenting on the election, Seun Kuti said that Buhari “trampled on the rights of my family when he jailed my father” but also that “I can forgive him if he begins to do to Nigerians what Fela would have liked … I would understand that, even if Fela were alive, [if] Fela sees Nigeria going forward, he would speak in favour of the man. But so far, I can’t betray my father based on some promises and some words.” And how did Stein regard the election result? “He’s claiming to be a born-again democrat. Let’s see.”
