September 21, (THEWILL) – The Chairman of Lagos State Park Management Committee, Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as MC Oluomo, has reacted to claims that he ‘orchestrated the sales of Tinubu campaign stickers’.
Some media (not THEWILL) had reported that officials of the Lagos State Park Management Committee, led by Oluomo, were demanding N500 for the stickers.
“You will have to meet the chairman (MC Oluomo) for questions” while struggling with the motorist”, an activist, Rinu Oduala, had said in response to a viral video showing an official forcefully pasting the campaign stickers on a resisting motorist.
Distancing himself from the allegations, Oluomo released a video on social media saying, “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 to see 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 it, knowing that it’s the handiwork of naysayers, being an election session, I also know their malicious intentions and the cheap political goal they aim to achieve with the video. For the sake of clarity, I am compelled to set the record straight.
“I do 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 that 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 will 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.”
