Dino Melaye, a former Senator representing Kogi West in the National Assembly, has told Speed Darlington, a musician, that he can spend his money on anything he desires.
The Peoples Democratic Party member was responding to the musician’s query of why he had so many exotic cars from being a lawmaker.
Melaye had responded citing examples of some people who spend fortunes on homosexuality or drugs, saying he decided to spend his on automobiles.
“Oh My God! Look at one man’s wealth and all he had to do was to be a Nigerian senator. Good thing he did not win the governorship election. They broke his leg during that election. No single man should have this much wealth and his only job was to be a senator,” Speed Darlington had said on Instagram.
Responding, Melaye said: “Everyone spends his or her on what he or she likes. My passion is to collect automobiles. Occults can buy blood for any amount. Homosexuals spend so much on same sex; some on babalawos (witch doctors); some hide their money in Switzerland while some bury ego (money) and some spend on cocaine. I am happy. I no even know say you dey vex. Kuro lona.”
