Debates have not seized among Nigerians on social media following rumoured reports that Musiliu Akinsanya, the Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) Lagos State Council who is better known as MC Oluomo is planning to join politics in its full form.
However, the former driver who is now a respected icon among Lagos State Commercial drivers and its union has debunked the report, noting that he has no interest in becoming a politician.
Though, the NURTW leader expressed that he wouldn’t mind if any of his child in the future would venture into politics.
Despite MC Oluomo’s clarification on joining Nigerian politics in full force, an argument has not seized among netizens who are trying to justify the role he has played in his office as the Lagos State NURTW Chairman with his possibility of making a good political leader.
The arguments, however, started following a post on the microblogging site, Twitter, by a popular Nigerian activist, Deji Adeyanju who tweeted on Friday regarding how some persons are hailing MC Oluomo on the alleged aspiration.
Deji tweeted saying, “MC Oluomo is the new messiah. Many Nigerians have taken blood covenant with suffering,” ending his post with a laughing emoji.
His tweet, however, was greeted with a barrage of reactions from social media users who reserves no plea in narrowing their beliefs on the matter been discussed.
Reacting to Deji Adeyanju’s tweet, a social user with the username @Phillipsolofin1 replied saying “So far so good MC Oluomo has governed his territory better than power corrupts governors. We have governors today who are not better than militants. They were before the became governor though,” a reply which raised another voice.
Unsatisfied with Philips tweet about MC Oluomo’s position, another user, @RoyOmamogho in his opinion condemned the insinuation by @Philipsolofin1, noting that his definition of governance is unacceptable in building a peaceful society.
He said, “My brother, what are you saying? “Governed his territory ” how? By onslaught on other contenders, do you know how many people have died in this tussle and crossfire, is this your definition of governance?. God help us.”
Philips while trying to justify his statement, noted further that MC Oluomo’s case is no different with that of Cross River State Governor, Nyesom Wike, whom he alleged that several lives were lost in the election which brought him into power in 2015.
News Nigeria recalls a statement by the ex-President of Nigeria, Dr Goodluck Ebele Jonathan during his last contest for another term as the President of Nigeria under the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP umbrella.
Jonathan in 2015 while contesting against the All Progressive Congress candidate, Muhammadu Buhari, said that his Presidential ambition is not worth the blood spill of any citizen.
However, Irrespective of who is in power or who is aspiring for a position, regardless of his/her political party, Nigerians deserved good leadership.
Nigeria deserves a peaceful and healthy nation, a nation that would lead in the front so others across the world can look up to it in progress and achievement.
