Chairman, National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Lagos chapter, Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as MC Oluomo has rallied Yoruba sons and daughter for the presidential ambition of former Governor of Lagos State, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.
Tinubu made his intention to vie for the presidency known on Monday after meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari in Abuja.
Reacting to the development, MC Oluomo said he received the news of Tinubu’s declaration of his presidential ambition with great joy and happiness.
“Though, he said he is yet to declare his intention to run to Nigerians but that he has disclosed his inner motive to the President and yielded to the clarion call of many Nigerians to him to vie, is a welcome development to me.
“Having made known his intention to be president, I strongly urge all Yoruba sons and daughters to troop out en-masse and show him massive support.
“I implore them to support him not because he is a Yoruba man but because of his pedigree and achievements. Because of his antecedent and past good deeds.
“Right from his NADECO days of fighting for justice, equality and democracy, to when he was the Governor, he stood for what was right and persevered even when the federal allocation of Lagos was stopped due to the creation LCDAs in Lagos.
“Had he not insisted and maintained the LCDAs, you can imagined the massive development that the LCDAs and Lagos would have been derived,” he said.
MC Oluomo said Tinubu remained the only person that has been able to uplift and developed many leaders that were now making waves across each sectors of the country.
“His eagle eye to source for talents and nurture them remained unparalleled. A support for Asiwaju is a support for the development of Nigeria and the unification of its people. It’s time to do the right thing and the needful,” he added.
