The social media has been awashed few days ago with news of MC OLUOMO allegedly invitations to Unilag as Special Guest 17th September 2019 organised by students in the Geography Department. 

MC Oluomo, who is the Lagos State Caretaker Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), was invited as a Special Guest at the colloquium organised by the National Association of Geography Students (NAGS) on Tuesday.

See what the University of Lagos management message to the general public below:

REJOINDER
“Nigerians React as MC Oluomo is Invited as a ‘Special Guest’ at an Event inside the University of Lagos”

The Management of the University of Lagos hereby notifies parents, guardians and other stakeholders of the University that it is aware of the event to which the Lagos State Caretaker Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Musiliu Akinsanya, was allegedly invited.

The event was a Colloquium on “Transport Efficiency: Employing Lagos Terrain Alternatives.” organised by the National Association of Geography Students (NAGS) on Tuesday, September 17, 2019. Relevant stakeholders in the transport sector invited to the event were: Arc. Abiodun Dabiri, MD, Lagos Metropolitan Area Transport Authority (LAMATA); Engr. Ibrahim Alhassan, Chairman, Nigerian Railway Corporation; Dr. Olusegun Spencer, Director, Amalgamated Mega-City Transport; Mr. Oluwadamilola Emmanuel, MD, Lagos Waterways Authority; Dr. Adewale Sanni, Station Manager, Lufthansa and Dr. Charles Asenime, LASU School of Transport, PG Coordinator.

Although, Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya (MC Oluomo) was one of those to be invited, which informed the draft banner with his picture, currently trending on social media; the approved banner did not have Alhaji Akinsanya as an invited guest, neither did he attend  the event.

For the record, events are organised on campus to expose students to current trends in the academia and industries. During such events, experts and relevant stakeholders with considerable knowledge and experience on the theme of such activities are carefully selected and invited to come and share their thoughts with our students.  The goal is to produce students that are locally relevant and globally competitive.

Therefore, the general public is enjoined to disregard any propaganda making the rounds on social media about the propriety of inviting a particular guest or not.

Signed,
Mrs. C. Taiwo Oloyede,
Principal Assistant Registrar,
Communication Unit
