MC Oluomo has distanced himself from allegations that he is orchestrating sales of stickers to tricycle (keke napep) drivers as a form of campaign for the presidential candidate for the All Progressive Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Specifically, MC Oluomo was reacting to the video of some touts demanding for the sum of N500 from tricycle drivers to buy a sticker that contained the image of the popular socialite, the APC president candidate and the face of Lagos state governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.
The chairman of the Lagos State Park and Garages Management Committee whose real name is Musiliu Akinsanya stated that he is not affiliated with those who designed the stickers and are requesting for funds from tricycle drivers.
Reacting to the video, MC Oluomo who has been a staunch disciple of the APC presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu stated in a video posted to Instagram on Tuesday night that he was not involved in it.
Publishing a statement on his Instagram page to distance himself from the controversy, MC Oluomo wrote;
“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.”
“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.”
Listen to him speak.
