MC Oluomo’s appointment comes few months after he dispelled rumors that he is planning to contest for a political office in Lagos State in the future.
The staunch All Progressives Congress’ supporter, however, said he is fully in support of the party in government in the state.
The union boss made the clarification while speaking with journalist Funmi Iyanda on Public Eye show in May.
Speaking in Yoruba language, MC Oluomo said;
The constitution permits anyone to contest. But count me out of it contesting. I do not want to be a rep, a senator or a governor.
