Musiliu Akinsanya, Lagos State Parks Management Committee Chairman, also known as MC Oluomo, has warned Igbos in the state ahead of Saturday’s governorship election.
Addressing supporters of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) at a meeting, MC Oluomo threatened Igbos who will not vote for the party to stay at home.
“We have begged them. If they don’t want to vote for us, it is not a fight. Tell them, Mama Chukwudi, if you don’t want to vote for us, sit down at home. Sit down at home,” he said.
This comes after Peter Obi of the Labour Party (LP) won in Lagos state during the presidential poll on February 25.
This has positioned Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, LP’s candidate in Lagos state, as a major challenger to incumbent Babajide Sanwo-Olu of the APC.
Meanwhile, Nigerians have taken to Twitter to express anger over MC Oluomo’s comments.
