Gov Adams ask Otunba Melaye to beg him


Edo state governor, Adams Oshiomole, has
asked for an unreserved apology from Senator
Dino Melaye over his recent comments about
him not marrying a Made in Nigeria woman
(read story here). During the senate debate on
promoting Made in Nigeria goods on Wednesday
March 2nd, Dino said that Nigerian men do not
like patronizing Made in Nigeria Girls and cited
Oshiomole who is married to Iara from Cape
Verde as an example. Oshiomole reacted to the
comment via a statement signed by his Chief
Press Secretary, Peter Okhiria. The statement
reads
“Our attention has been drawn to the
unprovoked verbal assault launched by
one Senator Dino Melaye on the Governor
of Edo State, Comrade Adams
Oshiomhole, while making a contribution
on the floor of the Senate on the need to
patronize made-in-Nigeria goods. As a
“nephew” of the Governor and members
of the same party, we expected Senator
Melaye to tender an unreserved public
apology to the Comrade Governor, to no
avail. It is an open secret that Senator
Melaye cannot maintain a decent
matrimonial home hence he could
descend to this pedestrian level of using
the hallowed chambers to “cargorise”
women as if they were pieces of items
for purchase. Any responsible individual
that is truly worth to be called a Senator,
a position that convokes respect,
decorum and decent public conduct,
should know the limits of his verbal
diarrhea. The liberty of free speech
guaranteed in the hallowed chambers
does not impose lunacy on anyone to
disparage other Nigerians, let alone pry
into their matrimony in a very derisive
manner. We had intended to ignore this
uncomplimentary comment as one of the
several empty displays of the Senator,
but the fact that it tends to reduce
women to pieces of tissue calls for this
response. As we probed into Dino
Melaye’s humanity, we were reminded
that he is a man known for his
vainglorious rodomontade and the
childish display of his ostentatious
lifestyle complements his love for foreign
items. Many of such euro-centric
mentality he has persistently displayed
on social media, to underscore his
materialistic eccentricity, hence his
dialectical opposition to made-in-Nigeria
goods. But an attempt at making women
wear the garb of goods to be picked off
the shelves was to take the issue to a
ridiculous and irresponsible level. By
delving into the private affair and
marriage of the Comrade Governor,
Senator Melaye has exposed himself as a
simpleton and a court jester whose words
and tactlessness cannot be taken
seriously by matured people. We advise
that Melaye should mend his ways with
his ex-wife and concubines before
coming to the village square to display
his crass ignorance and emptiness to the
Nigerian people. If he has anything to
offer, Dino Melaye should concentrate on
making good laws for the people of
Nigeria rather than descend to a
ridiculous level, thus displaying to the
whole world his unworthiness to sit in the
hallowed chambers of the Nigerian
Senate".
