Senator Dino Melaye shared a video on his Instagram page today where Masquerades lined up on the street with his campaign posters attached on them.
His convoy slowly drove passed the masquerades as someone in the convoy filmed them. “Hope these masquerades have PVC ooo”, Dino captioned the video.
Dino is a controversial politician that heavily supported the candidacy of President Mohammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Party in the 2015 presidential election.
He, however, switched to the Peoples Democratic Party a few years later and became a heavy critic of the Buhari led government. He supported Atiku Abubakar of the PDP in the 2019 presidential election which President Buhari won.
Dino also won a Senatorial seat to represent Kogi West Senatorial district in the 9th National Assembly. However, the court nullified the election and called for a rerun between him and Smart Adeyemi of the APC.
Before the court judgment, the 45 years old politician declared his intention to contest for the Kogi State gubernatorial election.
On the 3rd of September, 2019, Senator Dino Melaye lost his gubernatorial ambition in a keenly contested primary election. He came third with a total of 70 votes behind Engr. Musa Wada who won with 748 votes.
Besides politics, Dino is popular for his luxurious lifestyle. He likes flaunting his exotic cars and dressing dramatically. There is a running battle between him and the EFCC over alleged financial misappropriation.
