Chairman of the Lagos Parks and Garages, Musliu Akinsanya, better known as MC Oluomo
Justice Chukwujekwu Aneke of the Federal High Court, Lagos, has granted the prayer of the Labour Party barring the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) from utilising the services of the chairman of the Lagos Parks and Garages, Musliu Akinsanya, better known as MC Oluomo from distributing election materials in Lagos.
The court restrained INEC from engaging Mr. Musiliu Akinsanya a.k.a. MC Oluomo-led Lagos State Parks Management Committee, or any of its commercial bus drivers, to distribute 2023 election materials and personnels in Lagos State.
The judge made the interim interlocutory injunction, after listening to Abass Arisekola Ibrahim, lawyer to the applicants in the suit marked FHC/L/CS/271/2023, filed by three political parties and their governorship candidates.
The political parties and their governorship candidates are: Labour Party, African Democratic Congress and Boot Party, and their governorship candidates are: Gbadebo Rhodes-vivour; Funsho Doherty, and Wale Oluwo.
INEC is the only defendant in the suit.
