Senator Dino Melaye of Kogi State, on
Tuesday, suffered the greatest embarrassment of his life in London, as
he was booed off the stage, while addressing Nigerians at the popular
Notting Hill Carnival.
According to report making rounds, Dino
who represents Kogi-West Senatorial District in the National Assembly,
was continuously interrupted by sections of Nigerians in the crowd,
while he was on stage giving a speech.
The Lawmaker continued speaking while
the crowd kept calling him to leave the stage, with some even shouting
“Ole (thief)” several times.
After hurrying up his speech, Senator
Melaye exited the stage with another rendition of his signature ‘Ajekun
Iya’ song and dance, targeted at “the enemies of Nigeria”.
While he was speaking, the Lawmaker had praised the country’s standing in the world, and promised that it will be greater soon.
He said: “I congratulate Nigerians, and I
say there is no country like Nigeria. And for those of you who are
here, you better come back home, because very soon, by the grace of God,
we will be greater.”
Recall that recently while speaking at
The Osasu Show Symposium, in Abuja, on Friday, the Lawmaker had remarked
that the country’s political class had failed the country, and its
He urged the political elite in the
country to take responsibility for the poverty and hunger that have
largely affected a majority of the country’s population.
