Head of the Olushi Onigbesa royal family has appealed to Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwo-Olu, to stop Mr Musiliu Akinsanya, also known as MC Oluomo, from becoming the Oba of Oshodi.
The Head of the Olushi Onigbesa royal family, Kabiru Eyantan, said this on Wednesday during a press briefing.
He said, “The attention of the Olushi Onigbesa royal family of Oshodi Awori Kingdom has been drawn to the picture of Alhaji Musiliu Ayinde Akinsanya aka MC Oluomo, Chairman, NURTW in Lagos State circulated on numerous social media platforms where he was dressed in traditional kingly attire intended for an Oba in Yorubaland.
“Our attention has also been drawn to the trending videos and news in social and conventional media with reference to the message delivered by a first class Oba in Ikorodu Division at the coronation anniversary of Oniba of Iba Kingdom in Iba Town, Ikeja Division on the issue of intended aspiration of Akinsanya to become Oba of Oshodi.
“Alhaji Akinsanya is not a member of the Olushi Onigbesa royal family in Oshodi land and has no right to be the Oba of Oshodi stool and therefore is not eligible to aspire or to be appointed to the stool of Oba of Oshodi,” he concluded.
Mr Sunday Moses, the media aide to the Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, MC Oluomo, when contacted, said the latter would brief the media over the issue on Sunday.
