If only Senator Dino Melaye had known, perhaps, he wouldn’t have mentioned Gov. Adams Oshiomhole’s name on Wednesday, March 2, 2016 while urging Nigerians to patronize made in Nigeria goods and even women!
Hear the controversial and flamboyant Senator representing Kogi West:’…Apologies to my uncle, the Governor of Edo State, we must as a people stop paying brides’ dowries in Dollars and Pounds…’
But firing back two days later, Gov. Oshiomhole, who spoke through his media aide, Peter Okhiria, took Sen. Melaye to the cleaners, describing him as not only being vainglorious and childish, but also incapable of sustaining his own matrimonial home.
His exact words:’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 member of the same party (with the Governor), we expect Senator Melaye to tender unreserved apology to the Comrade Governor’.
Adding:’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 ‘categorize’ women as if they were pieces of items for purchase…’
Done with Melaye’s matrimonial issues, Oshiomhole delved into his love for fast and exotic automobiles, which he summed up as vainglorious, childish et al.
Melaye, it would be recalled, had a messy and noisy split with his wife, Tokunbo, and while that was yet to die down, popular Yoruba actress, Bisi Ibidapo-Obe, accused him of impregnating and dumping him.
For Oshiomhole, he lost his wife of many decades, Clara, to cancer, and years later married a Cape Verdean, Lara Fortes, in a high society wedding that was even attended by President Muhammadu Buhari, which is what has currently pitched the two top politicians and APC members in this roforofo fight.
