Nigerians React To MC Oluomo’s Invitation To Speak At A UNILAG Event
The leader of the Nigerian Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) Lagos chapter, Musiliu Akinsanya popularly known as MC Oluomo, is yet again the subject of discussion on social media.
Oluomo was invited as a special guest for a seminar organised by the University of Lagos (UNILAG).
However, this invitation has led to so many mixed reactions on social media where many expressed not just shock and disappointment but applaud him for “not only being an agbero” but being “more qualified to speak at the event than 95% of our current and past graduates”.
A twitter user expressed his disappointment and shock saying: “How can a National Thug be allowed to talk in UNILAG and Sowore wasn’t welcome”.
While another stated that “the event was organized by the transport unit of a Dept there..all invitees are stakeholders in the transport sector”, hence the need for his presence.
This would not be the first time Oluomo will be in the spotlight. In June, MC Oluomo, his wife and son Ololade received an honorary invitation by the executive governor of Georgia USA, Brain Kemp and his wife, Marty Kemp as a result of his son’s academic excellence.
What did Nigerians have to say about this recent development? Plenty. Read some mixed reactions below:
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

It’s funny that many think MC Oluomo got that invite because of his “intelligence” on the transport sector.
Many student events don’t care about that. As long as gou can sponsor, you’ll get a speaking slot. Simple.

MC Oluomo is more qualified to speak at University gathering than 95% of our Current and past graduates.
Let's be guided.

Here we go again Nigerians thinking that the only way u can get educated is through schooling. That's the biggest trap of the century. We get educated by getting knowledge which can be available everywhere. MC oluomo is super qualified and experienced to speak in unilag.

University of Lagos should be renamed MC Oluomo University,Akoka-Lagos..UNILAG Authorities should consider this,since they have no idea what to do with their brains anymore.

Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, MC Oluomo wasn't invited to share from the depths of his knowledge/expertise but from the depths of his pocket.
Money will confer wisdom to you.
You will be amazed at the reception of your audience. Owó ló n sòrò.
