The newly-appointed caretaker Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) Lagos chapter, Musiliu Akinsanya popularly known as MC Oluomo, set the social media abuzz again on Thursday morning.
This time it is not about political events, nor his NURTW chairmanship aspiration, Oluomo has been invited as a special guest for a seminar organised by a department in the University of Lagos (UNILAG).
According to some Twitter users, the event is organised by the transport department of the university and Oluomo as well as other stakeholders in the Lagos transport sector have been invited to make their contributions.
The banner bearing the photo of Oluomo as a Special Guest alongside other speakers emerged on Twitter on Thursday morning and it didn’t take long before it went viral sparking mixed reactions among Netizens.
Other invited guests whose photographs appeared on the banner included the Permanent Secretary of Lagos Ministry of Transport, Olawale Musa, Managing Director of the Lagos Waterways Authority, Oludamilola Emmanuel, Managing Director of Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA), Abiodun Dabiri among others.
While many expressed disappointment as they condemned the invitation of Oluomo, some were of the opinion that as a major stakeholder in the state’s transport sector, there is nothing wrong in inviting him to speak on his field.

See some of the reactions:
Transport department of UNILAG invited MC Oluomo who is the NURTW top Dog to come speak at an organized event and you feel he’s not worthy enough?

Saw MC Oluomo trending, checked and I’ve been laughing my ass off since.
See ehn, maybe I have lost every fight in me, but I have come to terms with the fact that everything is possible in Nigeria now.

MC Oluomo will give Unilag 5M
Those that invited him together with the ogas will share 3M
They will give the remaining 2M to the institution
10 students will vow to be like MC Oluomo after graduation
At least 7 will eventually be
The evil of today will produce evils tomorrow.

Unilag inviting MC OLUOMO as a special guest. 👀
Will MC OLUOMO speak English or Yoruba ?
Student will start seeing MC OLUOMO as their role model. 🤗
It’s only in Nigeria somebody who got no degree will be invited as a guest in a university to represent what ?

MC OLUOMO will be appearing as a special guest at UNILAG.
A known thug & political weapon of destruction getting called to appear in front of students.
This only proves education isn’t everything. The students who’re on the path to thuggery will have firm assurance.

There’s actually nothing wrong in inviting MC Oluomo to speak at an event in UNILAG.
The fact he’s a NURTW chairman doesn’t mean he’s a blockhead. He also has 1 or 2 things he can teach people and they’ll appreciate.
Y’all should stop stereotyping.
BTW, MC Oluomo 4 Gov. soon

University of Lagos inviting a thug, MC Oluomo as a guest speaker & people are saying its cos he is knowledgeable. On what?
No wonder we call on past leaders who have looted & destroyed this country before to still lead us now cos a person’s image isn’t relevant in Nigeria. pic.twitter.com/eyAtS1nHVs

MC Oluomo has no business in this kinda gathering.
Unilag just proved to us that education is a waste of time.
Nigeria education is totally messed up. pic.twitter.com/bRiZM0YQAe

What is wrong with MC Oluomo as a guest speaker in a university? What he knows about transportation in Lagos State and Nigeria are not being taught in the school curriculum. You think everything is formal education?

Covid-19: US records 2,000 deaths in 24 hours as cases pass 502,000
The United States has reported 2,108 coronavirus deaths in 24 hours, the highest daily increase in the country since the outbreak began, pushing the total US death toll to 18,777 on the one-month anniversary of the World Health Organization (WHO) declaring the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic.
Meanwhile, the number of confirmed cases in the US topped 502,000 on Saturday, as the worldwide death toll surpassed 102,000.
The US is soon expected to overtake Italy in the grim position as the country with the highest number of fatalities. To date, Italy has registered at least 18,800 deaths.
With the number of infections worldwide now close to 1.7 million, including more than 376,000 recovered patients, the WHO has urged caution to countries considering easing restrictions put in place to stem the outbreak.
“The way down could be as dangerous as the way up if not managed properly,” WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said.
Ondo civil servant smuggles wife into service, places her on grade level 14
A civil servant in Ondo State has been arrested for allegedly smuggling his wife into the Ondo State Civil Service and placing her on grade level 14 and she had been collecting salaries.
The Senior Special Assistant to Governor Rotimi Akeredolu on Special Duties, Dr Doyin Odebowale, who confirmed the arrest, said the suspect was caught as a result of the reform carried out by the state’s Head of Service, Mr Alex Aragbaye.
Odebowale did not, however, state how long the woman had been collecting salaries.
He added that other suspects were arrested for alleged involvement in various corrupt practices.
“We were able to discover that certain elements, whose names appear on the staff list, were never employed. A particular man employed his wife and placed her on grade level 14. She never attended an interview and she has been collecting salaries.
The governor’s aide stated that all the indicted civil servants had already been suspended, adding that they would face disciplinary actions.
How my wife and I were humiliated, manhandled by Nigeria Police at Moore Police Station Ile Ife By Dr Abiodun Olabanjo
My wife and l are Medical Doctors practising in Ile Ife Osun state. While my wife works with OSHMB. I have a private hospital in Ile Ife. l had to drive my wife to her place of work this morning with the private hospital ambulance (Name of the hospital well written on the ambulance with Doctors stickers on the windscreen). We had passed through several police barricades on the way.
On getting to one of the barricades in front of Moore Police station, we stopped and they asked for our mission on the road, despite the lockdown declared by the Government, and we patiently introduced ourselves and told them where we work and the reason why I had to drive my wife to her place of work and also informed them that I would be coming back soon as I had a patient that was been prepared for surgery before I left the hospital.
To my surprise on my way back from State Hospital Oke Ogbo Ile Ife where my wife works unlike other checkpoints where we had passed, where they didn’t need to stop us again for questioning on seeing the same hospital ambulance, the police at the barricade in front of Moore decided to stop us again and we did.
They asked me again for my identity and I explained to them but they insisted on parking the ambulance despite all explanation. After some persuasion one of the police personnel ordered the barricade to be removed, a car in the front and we followed but as we drove on we heard a loud bang at the back of the ambulance with someone in boy scout uniform calling other policeman claiming we broke through their barricade.
We, therefore, decided to stop but before I could open the car door to come down they started hitting me from the car, slapping and dragging me out of the car saying we wanted to hit one of them.
I was kicked several times by these about 30/50 people who were not even aware of what transpired. On citing this my wife quickly came down to stop the one slapping and hitting me but they didn’t even allow her they started beaten and dragging her too to the police station.
We were then ordered to be locked up in the cell by the Area Commander without any interrogation.
Instead, they collected all our four phones our shoes and other personal belongings including the car key without allowing us to make any form of communication either to our people nor our lawyer.
It was one of our patients who witnessed the event that quickly reported the case at our hospital from where our lawyer was contacted.
It was our lawyer in company of the patient that was waiting for emergency caesarian section that came to bail us at the police station. As we speak now, we were told they threatened to charge us to court tomorrow for trial even without investigation calling us all sorts of names and concorted lot of lies against us.
Our questions are….. Are Doctors not permitted to go to their places of work during this lockdown? Is the hospital ambulance not permitted to move during lockdown?
Was it normal for the police officer to collect all our phones without allowing us to communicate either with our people or our lawyer……. Our phones were ringing several times and they were dancing and singing to the tunes despite telling them that someone was in distress. It is our desire to register our displeasure to the whole nation…….
