If You Won’t Vote For Us, Sit Down In Your House – Mc Oluomo Sternly Warns Igbos Ahead Of Lagos Election
The Lagos State Parks Management Committee Chairman, Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as MC Oluomo, has once again threatened Igbos voters who will not vote for the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Saturday’s governorship election, to stay at home.
Recall Labour Party presidential flagbearer, Peter Obi, won the presidential election held in Lagos State on Saturday, 25th Feburary defeating Bola Ahmed Tinubu, candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), in his stronghold, Lagos State.
Results of the keenly contested election showed that Obi polled 582,454 votes to defeat Tinubu who scored 572,606 and Atiku Abubakar of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) who got 75,750 votes, in Lagos.
Following Obi’s performance in Lagos during the presidential elections, his supporters have vowed to replicate the same gesture for the governorship candidate, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour.
Speaking ahead of the Saturday’s election, the notorious Lagos thug, Mc Oluomo in a recent party meeting, themed ‘Lagos rising’ warned Igbo voters in the state to sit in their houses on election day if they were not going to vote for the ruling party.
Speaking in Yoruba, the APC chieftain noted that they have begged the igbos, and if they still insist on voting their candidate, they should sit at home rather than come out on election day.
In his words: “We have begged them. If they don’t want to vote for us, it is not a fight. Tell them, mama Chukwudi, if you don’t want to vote for us, sit down at home. Sit down at home,” MC Oluomo said in pidgin English as seen in a viral video shared on Twitter
Recall that MC Oluomo made the same hate speech during the just concluded presidential election, where he was seen on camera threatening Peter Obi’s supporters ‘Obidients’ from voting.
As at the time of filing this report, the Federal Government of Nigeria, as well as the Lagos State government are yet to react to such provoking statement that is capable of causing violence and disruptive to the electoral process in Lagos State.
