King West, the son of former NURTW chairman MC Oluomo, has caused controversy with his congratulatory message to his dad, who is a staunch supporter of the presidential candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC), Bola Tinubu. While the results of the presidential elections held on Saturday, February 25, are being collated at the National Collation Center in Abuja and APC’s Tinubu appears to be taking an early lead, King West shared a video of his father, Oluomo, and other APC supporters celebrating. In his caption, West congratulated his dad and made reference to the Labour Party’s presidential candidate, Peter Obi’s victory in Lagos State. According to West, the candidate of the All Progressive Congress, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, sacrificed Lagos so that he could win at the national level. “Congrats Dad, You all sacrificed Lagos to win Nigeria”, he wrote.

His caption, however, caused a stir as Nigerians made different inferences from it. Reacting, a Twitter page @leaked9ja wrote, “Clearly shows that….they deliberately manipulated the results to favour LP….and with a small margin. So they can say the process was fair”. @AccidentalProm1 said, “Politics should be by leadership skills and not the best at playing the “game”.

@sia_rhema added, “That was no sacrifice…. They did all they could but it didn’t just happen. Even that North they are using to cover face is still rigging….. So all these are just them pretending to be wise.”
