Atiku Abubakar’s aide Phrank Shaibu Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) partnered with the chairman of the Lagos State Parks Management Committee Musiliu Akinsanya popularly known as MC Oluomo ahead of the general election.
INEC recently announced that they will be needing the help of road transport workers to distribute electoral material during the general elections.
Shaibu believes MC Oluomo will have an influence in election malpractice as it is understood that Akinsanya is also a loyalist to the All Progressives Congress presidential candidate Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
Addressing journalists in Abuja on Thursday, February 2, 2023, Shaibu advised INEC not to engage the services of MC Oluomo, stressing that he is partisan and a known chieftain of the APC.
Shaibu said: “It has been brought to our attention that INEC will be using members of the NURTW, RTEAN and other registered unions to transport election materials and electoral officials and corps members on election day.
“Unfortunately, in Lagos state, there is no NURTW or RTEAN as they have been proscribed by Governor Sanwo-Olu.
“Lagos is now operating a parks management committee led by MC Oluomo, who is a member of the presidential campaign council. On October 9, 2022, he and his transport thugs held a march for Tinubu in several parts of Lagos state.
“To preserve the sanctity of this election and ensure that there is no room for electoral malpractice, INEC must ensure that MC Oluomo is not allowed access to ballot papers. INEC should not make use of the state’s park committee.
“Rather, the commission should reach out to the national leadership of the NURTW and or engage the services of any logistic company for the purpose of distributing sensitive electoral materials in Lagos state.”
