MC Oluomo mourns sister's demise

Lagos State National Union of Road Transport Workers chairman, Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as MC Oluomo has denied imposing sales of political stickers on motorists.

In a viral video cited by Punch Metro, a tricycle driver in the Ajah area of Lagos refused to purchase a sticker bearing the image of the All All Progressives Congress presidential candidate, Bola Tinubu, and others.

Following the video circulation, Netizens accused MC Oluomo who is a staunch supporter of the ‘Emi lo kan’ movement of his principal, Tinubu for enforcing the sale of the APC-bearing sticker.

Oluomo was further accused of using the sticker and the proceeds of its sale to fund campaigns for his principal in the state.

Reacting to the video, MC Oluomo denied knowledge of the development, blamed it on his political opponents, and further pleaded that anyone who finds the perpetrators to report to the nearest police station.

He added that the former Lagos State Governor has more than enough resources to fund his campaign and he won’t be the one financing the campaign on his behalf.

He, however, implored detractors to leave him out of their political permutation and stop using his name to gain cheap popularity.

He shared  a video on his Instagram page which he captioned:

“My attention has yet again been drawn to a video clip circulating online showing an altercation between two people as regards a sticker.

“It came to me as a surprise seeing that people were attaching the video to me and were also quick to state that it was a campaign fee to support the election of Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

“Naturally I would have just ignored knowing that it’s the handiwork of naysayers. Being in an election session, I also know their malicious intentions and the cheap political goal they aim to get with the video. I am however compelled for the sake of clarity to set the record straight.

“I did not know anything about the said sticker, and neither did I sanction the sale. I would appreciate additional information as regards the location where the incident happened so that we can conduct a thorough investigation.

“We are against anything that would hamper the free flow of business activities or bring hardship upon our people. May I also inform the public that the APC Presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has more than enough people willing to finance his campaign and such money would not come from me or my office.

“I want to urge our people to be vigilant and remember that we are in an election period, as such, political parties would be looking for ways, both ethical and unethical, to outsmart themselves. I however implore them to leave me out of their political permutations and stop maligning my name for the sake of cheap popularity.”
