The Management of the University of Lagos (UNILAG) on Friday morning cleared the air regarding the alleged invitation of the Lagos State Caretaker Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW), Musiliu Akinsanya, alias MC Oluomo, as special guest at a campus event, stressing that he never attended any event at the institution.

The rejoinder followed social media hysteria over the alleged invitation of the controversial transport union leader to a Colloquium on “Transport Efficiency: Employing Lagos Terrain Alternatives” organised by the UNILAG National Association of Geography Students (NAGS) on Tuesday, September 17, 2019.

A statement signed by Mrs. C. Taiwo Oloyede, Principal Assistant Registrar, Communication Unit, said: “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.”

Even so, UNILAG Management clarified: “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.”
