Nigerians attack MC Oluomo over comment on NURTW
Nigerians have stormed social media to express their disagreement with a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress, APC, and National Union of Road Transportation Workers (NURTW), Musiliu Akinsanya, better known as MC Oluomo, who said members of the union can be compared to lawyers, engineers and doctors in terms of professionalism.
DAILY POST reports that MC Oluomo, who said NURTW officials are not thugs and should not be treated with disdain by Nigerians, generated over 1,300 Twitter comments as at the time of this report.
“For your information, NURTW is a profession just like law, engineering and medicine. We are not thugs but we are professionals,” he tweeted.
The comment has drew wide condemnation among Nigerians. Below are some of what the people saying on Twitter:
@_Olabode_: “So we spent years in school only for Mc oluomo to come and compare NURTW to our courses.”
@BrickzMusic: “Yes, Agberos can be quite uncouth but the major problem with Nigeria and why people cut corners is because nobody respects dignity in labour in this country. Yes NURTW is a professional union just like NBA, NSE, etc. MC Oluomo is 100%. Correct.
@AATSarumi; “MC Oluomo is right. Driving is a profession and their professional union is NURTW – like NUT, NBA and NMA.
“And they know how to use their influence better than these ones.”
@tweetMOPOL: “I initially disagreed with mc Oluomo, then I went to read the definition and found out he was right. Same way footballers don’t study to be professionals. You just need to be paid for your specific skill.”
@ShakyShakyDaddy: “Dear MC Oluomo, repeat after me: Agbero no be work! NURTW no be work! Agbero no be work! NURTW no be work!”
@Waliyadeniran: “MC Oluomo couldn’t articulate his thought properly for obvious reasons, but of course you know he meant to say NURTW is as an association of professionals, and he is right about that.”
@AhmadGaji5: “Y’all are here subbing NURTW and mc oluomo, it’s not by mouth o, go to oshodi and say it na. Twitter dey give you wings abi.”
@de_doyin: “There is no need to waste money by paying huge amount to go to the University, you can now get your degree in less than one week.
“All you need do is register with MC Oluomo, the Vice-chancellor of NURTW …Voila! you become a BSc, B.A, BEng. graduate. Job is guaranteed too.”
@hausahiphoponl1: “I bet y’all saying sh*t about MC Oluomo on Twitter can’t say that when going to ikorodu inside a bus; agberos go change am for y’all.”
@kampala45: “Agbero will still be agbero no matter how well packaged it is. When the time comes, MC OLUOMO will (show) he is agbero.”
@SubDeliveryZone: “Professor Mc Oluomo lectures twitter about NURTW, in case of intending students.”
@dhotun: “National Thuggery University, Oshodi-Mushin Permanent campus
“Vice chancellor: Mc Oluomo; Registrar: Talo.
“100 level course registration portal;
“1st Semester… Weed 101 (Pre-requisite), Dirty clothes 102, Alomo & Fire 104, Sagging 106, High Speed running 108, Frog Voice 110.”
@r3al____AJ: “MC Oluomo PhD, B Eng, Transport management, department of NURTW Oshodi school of Technical studies.”
@ELIJAHbalogun12: “MC Oluomo, you dare compare your thuggish career in NURTW with the likes of doctors and lawyers. Not your fault at all. It is the likes of Tinubu that make your types relevant for their evil ambitions.
@Zuronye: “MC Oluomo: NURTW is a profession
