Musiliu Ayinde Akinsanya, fondly called MC Oluomo, is the Chairman of the Lagos Parks And Garages Management Committee and the former Chairman of the Lagos State chapter of the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW).
He was born on March 14th, 1975, at Agbo-Ile Atere in Oshodi, Lagos, to Baba Akinsanya and Alhaja Abebi Zinat Omotonwo.
MC Oluomo is a transport entrepreneur and a political apologist. He is a member of the All Progressive Congress and an ally of the APC’s Presidential Candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
MC Oluomo attended Afolabi Primary School in Oshodi and Olu Efon Primary School in Abeokuta for his elementary education before dropping out.
Oluomo started as a bus conductor and public bus driver before joining the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW).
While with the union, Oluomo rose through the rank to become the treasurer of the Oshodi branch before emerging as the chairman.
When the chairman of the Lagos branch of the union, Tajudeen Agbede, emerged as the national vice president of the union, MC Oluomo was part of the 18-man caretaker committee inaugurated to pilot the affairs of NURTW, Lagos.
As a member of the caretaker committee, Oluomo faced several opposition from members who believed he would impose himself as the chairman of the union.
Amidst the uprising, Oluomo became the chairman of the union. This gave him the influence to become a force to reckon with.
He used the influence to attach himself to several big political names, especially the former governor of Lagos state, Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
MC Oluomo has been accused of being used as a tool of election thuggery in the state with the use of the members of NURTW under his chairmanship.
During an election campaign in 2019, MC Oluomo was stabbed in the neck by rival thug groups.
In April 2022, the national body of the NURTW dissolved the administrative council of the Lagos chapter and accused MC Oluomo of misconduct, insubordination, and incitement.
In reaction to the dissolution, MC Oluomo announced the membership withdrawal of the state chapter from the national body of NURTW.
MC Oluomo got the state government’s backing, which imposed a ban on the activities of NURTW in the state.
The state government, under the leadership of Babajide Sanwo-Olu, then set up the Lagos Parks and Garages Management Committee and appointed Oluomo as its pioneer chairman.
MC is a polygamist with three wives and nine children.
His wives are:
- Alhaja Madinat Adunni Akinsanya
- Temitope Adunni Akinsanya
- Aisha Ajoke Akinsanya.
