INEC: We Have No Option Than To Work With MC Oluomo-led Parks Committee

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) says it will work with the Lagos state parks management committee for the distribution of election materials and personnel in the state.

Olusegun Agbaje, INEC resident electoral commissioner in Lagos, spoke on Tuesday during the inter-agency consultative committee on election security (ICCES) meeting at the commission’s office in Lagos.

Agbaje said working with the committee led by Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly known as MC Oluomo, would not compromise the elections.

Babajide Sanwo-Olu, governor of Lagos state, had set up the parks committee after banning the operations of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) and the Road Transport Employers Association of Nigeria (RTEAN).

But Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), had reportedly warned INEC against the use of the parks committee.

Abubakar raised the alarm that MC Oluomo is a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign council and has held solidarity rallies for the party.
