Femi Kuti‘s Lagos neighbours have been dragging him on Twitter, expecting him to fix electricity issues. He has replied, telling them to be channel their frustrations to the people they voted into office, and hold them accountable, and to stop expecting him or anyone else to speak up for them.

One of the neighbours even brought up his father’s name, Fela, saying he would not have allowed this to happen.

    I don’t think you people understand the gist well. Imagine living in a neighborhood and your transformer develops a fault. While the rest of you are trying to sort out the problem, one of the elites decides to port to the neighboring community’s transformer because he can afford to. Of course, the rest of you will feel betrayed. So please understand the situation before commenting.

      The situation you described is just like the Nigerians that got fed up with the problems associated with Nigeria and moved to other countries to find green pastures. By your analogy, they’ve betrayed Nigeria.

    Nigerians this is a new low, its bad enough we blame government for the DISCOs failings, now some have ported to blaming individual citizens.

    If you have an electrical problem, barricade their office, hell manhandle their staff, at least it will show you have the right priority.

      Lol someone should just try it. After hearing Sisi Yemmie’s story about just meeting her alone? Imagine asking her why she hasn’t tried to help fix your transformer. That one will incur the death stare of life.
