MC Oluomo Denies Ordering Sale Of Tinubu’s Stickers
A video circulating on social media shows some transport officials forcing Keke drivers to pay N500 for stickers on their tricycles in the Ajah area of Lagos.
One of the drivers insisting on not buying said in Pidgin English, “I no dey pay, if na because of am, I go park this keke. I no dey pay one naira. Take your sticker, no put am.”
It was gathered that the stickers is bearing images of MC Oluomo; Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, and the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu.
Reacting to the viral video on his Instagram page, MC Oluomo described the action a political ploy to tarnish his image and de-market Tinubu and Sanwo-Olu.
The Lagos transport boss, who denied ordering sales of the stickers, explained that Tinubu has a lot of money to fund his presidential campaign, adding that the resources will not come from his office.
MC Oluomo said, “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, neither did I sanction the sale. I would appreciate additional information as regards the location where the incident happened so that we can conduct 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.”
KanyiDaily recalls that Bola Tinubu’s wife, Remi was also caught on camera threatening Igbos living in Lagos with eviction and inheritance of their wealth.
