Nigerian comedian, Okey Bakassi has slammed MC Oluomo for affiliating Igbos with the sales of All Progressive Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu‘s stickers to tricycle (keke napep) riders in Lagos state.
Earlier, MC Oluomo whose real name is Musiliu Akinsanya, who is the chairman of Lagos State Parks and Garage Management Committee had suggested that either the Igbos or the opposition party, People’s Democratic Party (PDP) may be responsible for selling stickers to commercial drivers and riders to fund Bola Tinubu’s presidential campaign.
On Tuesday, September 19, a resident in Ikorodu, Halimat Rufai, had a shared a video showing some touts forcing tricycle operators to purchase Tinubu’s campaign stickers for N500.
She explained that the tricycle operators usually were forced to pay for the stickers, a development that is currently generating confirmation on social media.
But reacting to the video, MC Oluomo said it was either the Igbo or the PDP who are responsible for the ticket sales to discredit Tinubu, presidential candidate of the APC.
He urged his supporters to hand over violators to the police after beating them.
“Whether it is you, the Igbos who are devising these means or opposition PDP, don’t give us bad names,” he said in Yoruba Language in the video shared earlier by Moji Delano.
“Anywhere you see something like that, beat them and take (them) to (the police) station. Anyone you see selling such stickers in the name of park and garages, arrest them and call my number.”
He added, “By the grace of God, Tinubu owns the presidency, and there is nothing enemies can do.”

Reacting to this Okey Bakassi wondered why MC Oluomo would drag Igbos into the drama.
Commenting on an Instagram blog post, the father of three wrote: “Why drag Igbos into every problems in Nigeria? The hate is unnecessary and it’s becoming boring.”
