Flamboyant senator and ’emerging godfather of Kogi State politics’, Dino Melaye is in the news again! This time, he has not challenged the Lion of Bourdillion to a fight.
Latest information is that Melaye, chairman of the Senate committee on the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), representing Kogi West in the National Assembly on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC), has bought a classic Rolls Royce estimate at $400,000 (N180 million).
Investigation has revealed that the Rolls Royce with Registration No. MELAYE 2, was acquired two years ago in Las Vegas, United States of America.
The picture of the Rolls Royce was secretly taken in his garage, during a visit to his residence in the highbrow Maitama District of the FCT in Abuja, during a visit on Wednesday, October 5, 2016.
A source said, “Senator Dino Melaye is very smart, he actually got the car from Las Vegas two years ago. At that time, he was busy committed with anti-graft crusade as Executive Secretary of Anti-Corruption Network (ACN) but decided to keep it in secrecy.”
A Google check on the car indicated that the Rolls Royce is a rare collectible item that is not only scarce but very expensive.
Checks have confirmed that the Rolls Royce which is a 1923 model is 93 years old, and is used by only a few persons in a special grade.
While no reason has been given why Dino Melaye had decided to keep it for the last two years unannounced, it is believed that he would steal the show in the National Assembly whenever he brings the car.
