Social media has been abuzz with diverse reactions following the graduation of Ololade Abdulai, the son of Musiliu Akisanya, popularly known as MC Oluomo and chairman of Lagos State Parks and Garages.
MC Oluomo took to his social media page to celebrate his son’s achievement, announcing that Ololade had obtained a double major from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Chemical Engineering and Business Management, with a remarkable 4.0 GPA.
While MC Oluomo’s post garnered positive attention, it also sparked various reactions among netizens.
Some Twitter users, like Pastor Okezie J Atani, used the opportunity to ridicule those who had previously celebrated another MIT graduate, Gbadebo Chinedu Patrick Rhodes-Vivour (known as GRV), who ran for the Labour Party in the last Lagos State gubernatorial election.
Others criticized the choice of MC Oluomo as a role model and questioned the disparity in opportunities between different societal classes.
Amidst the reactions, some users expressed gratitude to those who had contributed to MC Oluomo’s son’s education, suggesting that it was the collective effort of the community that facilitated his success.
Others acknowledged that despite any personal reservations about MC Oluomo’s political involvement, his son’s achievement should be recognized separately.
However, there were also critics who raised concerns about the alleged actions of MC Oluomo’s followers during elections and their impact on society.
They pointed out the irony of MC Oluomo sending his son to a prestigious institution while others associated with him faced challenging circumstances.
The online discourse surrounding MC Oluomo’s son’s graduation illustrates the diverse perspectives of Nigerians, reflecting a range of sentiments about social status, education, and the role of political figures in society.
