Did you know that Dino Melaye is a dumbo?

Senator Dino Melaye of Kogi West spoke in the Senate on patronising made in Nigeria products and said that Nigerian men should not be like Adams Oshiomhole, the governor of Edo State and “should start patronising made in Nigeria women”.

Watch Dino the Dumbo make his daft suggestion:

He said Nigerian men should stop paying dowry in dollars to marry foreign women. This was a “below the belt” dig at his “uncle” Oshiomhole, who married young Iara from Cape Verde last year.

It is disrespectful to women for Melaye to use them in reference to a debate about products. It suggests that the senator thinks women are objects like his collection of foreign cars.

Melaye is hardly the best person to advise Nigerian men on women, considering how he brutalised his “made in Nigeria” ex-wife Tokunbo Fabiyi.

Deranged Dino, whose lack of respect for “made in Nigeria democrazy” meant he was suspended from the House of Representatives for fighting in 2010, was also alleged to have put a gun to the head of ex-wife Tokunbo during their ill-fated “made in Nigeria” marriage.
