Musiliu Akinsanya a.k.a. MC Oluomo said his warning to Igbos not supporting the All Progressives Congress, APC, in the Lagos election, was a joke.

The Chairman of Lagos State Parks Management Committee issued a subtle threat at a gathering on Thursday.

Oluomo had told the people of Southeast supporting the opposition to stay indoors on election day.

The governorship and house of assembly poll will be conducted nationwide tomorrow.

In a video on Friday, Oluomo said he could not have threatened non-Yorubas as the APC needed the votes of other ethnic groups.

“I was talking to my sister, Mama Chukwudi (with him in the video), at a meeting I attended yesterday.

Zik was the first President of Nigeria. Born in Zungeru in the North and moulded in Lagos, he was determined to make it anywhere he stepped his feet. After studies abroad, Azikiwe returned to Africa and gained prominence in Ghana ( Gold Coast) as a newspaper editor.

Azikiwe left Accra for Lagos where he felt journalism could be combined with politics in those heightened years of nationalism. And it paid him. His tabloid, West African Pilot, appealed to everyone who wanted power to change hands from white to black.
