Chairman of the Oshodi Tapa Chieftaincy family in Lagos State, Chief Moroof-Deen Babatunde, today, said the family has not endorsed anyone as the traditional ruler of Oshodi.
There were speculations that the Chairman of the National Union of Road Transport Workers, NURTW, in Lagos State, Mr Musiliu Akinsanya, popularly called MC Oluomo, was to be installed as the Oba of Oshodi.
Addressing journalists on the family’s position, Chief Babatunde said: “The record we are trying to put straight is that this family house: Oshodi Tapa chieftaincy family , is the absolute owner and controller of Oshodi town in Oshodi/Isolo Local Government Area .
“We have not endorsed anybody to be Oba. We have not even called for candidature as I speak. We therefore, take report of Musiliu Akinsanya alias MC Oluomo’s moves to be Oba of Oshodi as a rumour because he is not a member of the Oshodi Tappa chieftaincy family and has no right to the stool of Oshodi town.
