DINO MELAYE RIDICULES GOV. OSHIOMHOLE FOR MARRYING FOREIGNER

Senator Melaye made a mock of Gov. Oshiomhole while lamenting Nigerians’ preference for foreign goods at the expense of the local items on the senate floor on Wednesday.DINO

He said: “I want to celebrate the ‘Made-in-Nigeria senator’ for bringing up this motion. In considering goods produced in Nigeria, we must look at the enabling factors that will necessitate the goods.

“It is beyond having one made in Nigeria attire and having over 70 designers’ attires in your wardrobe. We must reduce the allocation for made-in-Nigeria goods and services to the basics.

“What are those factors limiting the production of these goods? We must tackle them. We must also begin to look at our legislation, then we will begin to talk about made-in-Nigeria goods.

“We will also move in order to encourage made-in-Nigeria products and begin to talk about made-in-Nigeria women.

“Apologies to my uncle, the Governor of Edo State, we must as a people stop paying dowries in dollars and pounds. It is time for my colleagues here to become born again.”

But over time, Senator Melaye has shown that he doesn’t put money where his mouth is. Recently he took delivery of a 2015 Slingshot(pictured right) having paid $24,000 estimated at N4.78 million for the ‘rich’ toy.
