Reconcile with your ex-wife, concubines, Oshiomhole fires back at Melaye

04 March 2016, 16:28

Benin - Edo state governor, Adams Oshiomhole, has hit back at Senator Dino Melaye, saying that the Kogi federal lawmaker only displayed his hollowness by delving into a matter as private as his marriage to his heartthrob.

Melaye, who is from Kogi-West senatorial district, while contributing to the motion by Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, which advocated the need to patronise products made in Nigeria, took a swipe at Oshiomhole, saying Nigerians should not emulate the governor whom he said opted not to “patronise ‘Made-in-Nigeria women’ but a foreign one”.

Melaye was referring to Iara, the wife of Oshiomhole, whom he married from Cape Verde in the Southern African region.

But in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Peter Okhiria, the governor said: the attention of the governor 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.

The governor said 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.

He advised the senator to 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.
