Therefore, has taken to his official Twitter page to address the unauthorized use of the name Fela on the campaign T-shirt printed by the party and posted on their Twitter page @APCNigeria which has been taken down.

Femi Kuti wrote and I quote;

I HAVE SEEN THE TWEET BY @APCNIGERIA AND CONFIRM THAT USE OF FELA’S NAME ON THE T SHIRTS BEARING THE NAME “JAGABAN” WAS NEVER AUTHORIZED. THE FAMILY OWNS THE TRADEMARK AND THE USE CONSTITUTES AN INFRINGEMENT AND DISREGARD OF OUR LEGAL RIGHTS. THE USER IS ADVISED TO CEASE AND DESIST AND ALSO TO IMMEDIATELY DELETE THIS TWEET. THE FAMILY DOES NOT ALIGN WITH ANY POLITICAL PARTY IN NIGERIA OR BEYOND. WE ARE CAREFULLY ASSESSING THE SITUATION AND FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS DEMAND WILL LEAVE US WITH NO OTHER OPTION BUT TO EXPLORE ANY LEGAL OPTIONS THAT ARE AVAILABLE TO US.
