Senator Dino Melaye posted this photo above few minutes ago with the following comments:
“Remembering my humble background, I also sold hawked too. Keep your dream alive.”
This is the same Kogi State Senator representing Kogi West senatorial district at the National Assembly who has undying passion for luxury cars.
The chairman of the senate committee on media has been known to drive beautiful cars, the acquisition of which he often ascribes to God’s blessings.
In light of the current economic crisis in Nigeria however, not many may be willing to cheer on a public official making costly acquisitions.
According to Sahara Reporters, Senator Dino Melaye may not have cared much about such sentiments while allegedly making his latest purchase, a 2015 Slingshot estimated to cost $24,000 (about N4.78 million).
The beautiful red car bears the senator’s trademark plate number ‘DINO’ and is surely a wonder to behold but may also attract critical appraisal from citizens who have increasingly advocated for frugality on the part of government officials.
