Chairman of the Lagos Parks Management Committee, Musiliu Akinsanya, otherwise known as MC Oluomo, has threatened the Igbos ahead of Lagos governorship election.
In a video circulating on social media, MC Oluomo sent a stern warning to anyone who intends to vote for a party other than the All Progressives Congress (APC) to stay at home during the election on Saturday.
MC Oluomo, who spoke in the Yoruba language in front of a massive crowd packed inside a hall, urged APC supporters to instruct their neighbours not to bother coming out if they won’t for the party.
He said, “We’ve appealed to them, if they won’t vote for us, it’s nothing to fight over. Kindly go and meet them and say Iya Chukwudi, please if you don’t want to vote for us, please sit down at home.”
His reference to “Iya Chukwudi” in the trending video suggested that his message was directed at Igbo voters in Lagos who are believed to have leaning towards the Labour Party in the coming elections.
The surprising victory of Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) during the presidential election in Lagos, has positioned LP’s governorship candidate in the state, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, as a major challenger to incumbent Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the APC.
