Your vote is tool to enforce power- Afrobeat singer, Seun Kuti

By Patricia Uyeh

As the 2019 elections draws closer, both Nigerian celebrities and politicians continue to encourage their followers to get their permanent voters’ card(PVC) to participate in the forthcoming elections.

For son of Afrobeats legend, Seun Kuti, it is time to cast a vote of no confidence on the political system. He was of the opinion that it was unwise to pick up PVC without being sure of credibility of the person voted for.

He wrote:“Shouting GET YOUR PVC Up and down. WHAT ARE WE VOTING FOR? My brother my sister not voting in a system that fails to represent you isn’t a lack of participation. It only becomes that if you are not actively building the system you want outside of the oppressive state. PVC na person contract ooo if u don’t collect dem sef no go collect bar, hence the advert not because it helps us.

“The leadership that must representing us will not be about winning elections or chasing your votes but will be about empowering our minds and inspiring our consciousness. It will, by its own positive essence, spur us to participate in its own party politics. We shall all be interested in its delegates and candidates for every primary and election respectively. It’s shall be OUR PARTY. When u see the party it will be your reflection.

“Then and only then do the people have a party. My people, PVC collection isn’t participation, it’s manipulation. Don’t let anyone force you to endorse their system until you are sure it represents you. Time to cast a vote of no confidence in the political system and build our own! This is the task of the #liberationgeneration,”
