The Lagos State Government has appointed Alh Musiliu Akinsanya popularly known as MC Oluomo as the chairman of the Lagos Parks Management Committee.

MC Oluomo was sacked as the Lagos chairman of the NURTW by the NUTRM national body barely 12 hours before his appointment.

The state government said it set up the committee to oversee the affairs of all motor parks and garages in the state.

In a statement by Gbenga Omotoso, Commissioner Information and Strategy, this is in fulfillment of the Government’s promise to ensure that events in the National Union of Road Transport Workers (NURTW) are not allowed to threaten law and order.
