MC Oluomo: Remove Lagos INEC REC, Now – Atiku Fumes

Meanwhile, Atiku has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to immediately remove the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Lagos, Olusegun Agbaje.

He was reacting to the plans by Agbaje to engage the Lagos State Park and Garage Management Committee led by transport kingpin, Musiliu Akinsanya aka MC Oluomo, to transport election materials for the commission.

In a statement on Wednesday by his Special Assistant on Public Communication, Phrank Shaibu, Atiku stated that Agbaje has shown partisanship and he is compromised.

He said it was curious that Agbaje had insisted on using the committee headed by MC Oluomo, who is a member of the All Progressives Congress Presidential Campaign Council.

The former Vice President described as watery Agbaje’s excuse that INEC would not be able to use the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) and the Road Transport Employees Association of Nigeria (RTEAN) because they had barred in Lagos.
