President Bola Tinubu reportedly urged Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya, also referred to as MC Oluomo, to resign from his position as chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) Lagos State branch. According to sources, MC Oluomo was also put under pressure to resign by Kusenla III, Wasiu Ayinde K1 De Ultimate, and Oba Saheed Ademola Elegushi, a musician from Fuji.

As one of Tinubu’s allies, MC Oluomo’s association with the President has faced public scrutiny. Sources suggest that MC Oluomo was encouraged to vie for the position of National President of NURTW, which is considered less financially attractive. Tinubu’s reservations about MC Oluomo being too controversial reportedly played a role in the decision. In response, MC Oluomo was given the position of national president, perceived to have fewer financial benefits than his previous role in Lagos.

MC Oluomo’s exit was allegedly orchestrated during a secret meeting with Tinubu, where media coverage was restricted. Tinubu’s preference for avoiding public appearances with MC Oluomo may have influenced the decision. In the meantime, Mustapha Adekunle (Sego), the current Treasurer of the union in the state, is set to take over the leadership at the Lagos State secretariat.

MC Oluomo, known for his political influence, issued a controversial statement ahead of the 2023 elections, urging Igbo people in Lagos to stay home if they didn’t plan to vote for APC candidates. The statement sparked calls for his arrest for alleged voter intimidation, to which MC Oluomo later claimed he was joking. Despite controversies, MC Oluomo has consistently aligned himself with Tinubu and the APC.

MC Oluomo’s resignation comes amid factional disputes within NURTW and political changes in Lagos State. The ailment of factional President Tajudeen Agbede opened the door for MC Oluomo’s potential move to the national secretariat. The Lagos State Government’s dissolution of the Park and Garages Committee further contributed to the political shifts, allowing NURTW to manage activities at motor parks and garages in the state.
