MC Oluomo speaks on backlash he received for invitation to speak at UNILAG
Musiliu Akinsanya aka MC Oluomo has reacted to criticisms of an invitation he received to speak as a guest at an event in UNILAG.
The National Association of Geography Students, UNILAG chapter, invited MC Oluomo to speak at their event on September 19, but their gesture was met with criticisms on social media.
According to the critics, MC Oluomo who is not educated shouldn’t be the kind of person to grace their platform.
Reacting to the criticisms, MC Oluomo who spoke through his aide stated that he couldn’t attend the event because he had pressing matters to attend to in Abuja.
He also wondered why he’s not seen to be fit to speak as a guest at the event.
“I don’t know the reason people are going against the invitation because the people who invited him knew what they wanted him to say. If he had gone there and said something wrong, then the critical reactions would have been justified.
“Is it a crime not to be educated? Should people who did not go to school go and commit suicide? I think that if someone did not go to school and has a large following, it is enough reason for people to invite him to occasions. Those who invited him for the event had a strong reason for doing it.
“People are judging MC Oluomo based on hearsay. You don’t judge a book by its cover. We are also making efforts to change the negative impression people have about him.”
