Gov. Bello hits out  at Dino Melaye’s parents in veiled attack

The governor urged the Senate to bring Melaye to order to forestall the latter from dragging the institution’s name through the mud.

He said. “I think it is necessary that that wonderful House should as matter of urgency and as a matter of fact check any social deviant that exists within them before they could be adjudged birds of the same feather. I know they are not of the same feather.”

Gov. Bello claimed Melaye’s behaviour was a sign of bad parenting.

And in a veiled attack on Melaye’s parents, he said, “I’d rather admonish Nigerians that when a child lacks proper parental care and home upbringing, he constitutes social menace in the society. And if the society does not take steps to check and correct such a child, he can turn into criminal and take into criminality. Then, it’ll be left to government to check such criminality. And if government does not, such a child can cause a serious embarrassment. That is what is happening in Kogi State.”
