Seun Kuti forgives Buhari who jailed his father, thanks APC leader Tinubu for bringing change to Nigeria

During the time General Buhari was Nigeria's head of state in 1983-985, many critics of his government were thrown in jail. One of such victims was Nigeria's most popular artist, Afro-beat singer Fela Kuti. Fela was arrested on September 4, 1984 at the airport as he was about to embark on an American tour and jailed for 5 years but spent just 1 year and 6 months. Buhari levied against Fela, charges of illegally exporting foreign currency which many people all over the world, including Amnesty International found to be false but Buhari still went ahead to sentence him to 5 years in prison. If not that another military team of Ibrahim. Babangida overthrew Buhari's government and released Fela, he might have spent the entire five years in jail. Before now, the children of the late Afro-beat king were known to be at loggerhead with even anyone who mentioned the name Buhari, but the above statement from Seun Kuti definitely means forgiveness as far as we are concerned. Change is the most constant thing in life! That saying is true...
