Lagos appoints Oluomo Parks Management Chairman, after initial denial


Yesterday, a viral video circulated on Twitter, showing how thugs were forcing motorists, especially Keke riders, to accept and pay N1000 for stickers with pictures of All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu and Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

In reaction, Mc Oluomo had in a post on social media asked residents to report this anomaly, tagging the whole attempt as a political move in a video translated into English by one of his aides.

He said, “This is a political move and motives of disgruntled elements to soil the image of our chairman and bring to disrepute the towering popularity of Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu and his political son, Babajide Olusola Sanwoolu. We hereby debunk this malicious move. It doesn’t emanate from Lagos Park and Garages and our state chairman. We would never stoop so low to the extent of doing all these things.

“We use this medium to warn all our political enemies who are bent on distorting the fragile peace, tranquility, oneness and togetherness we enjoy in Lagos and Nigeria. This sticker didn’t emanate from Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya. We will never stoop so low to the extent of forcing stickers on someone with political intention. We hereby debunk this in totality.”

Going further, the Park and Garages Chairperson gave out his number for residents to report to enable them to fish out the thugs.
