“..Not all who look innocent are innocent and not all who looks gentle are gentle. However the truth must be told at all times. “-theuntoldstorywriters (2019)
The name Dino Melaye is not just a household name in the Nigeria Political system since the beginning of the 4th Republic (1999 – till Date), but it has also become one that draws a huge controversy. What makes him a household name lies not in his stomach that can swallow over a thousand fishes, but perhaps, in his ability to incubate anger and aggression, and breathes fire and fury like the popular Yoruba god SANGO.
Some loves him because to them he is Jesus the savior or the great prophet Muhammad (S.A.W). Maybe they were being deceived because sometimes the devil can put on a sheep’s clothing, and the devil as we all know sometimes can become a very kind man. No doubt, even an angel can become the devil. Change is constant. Times and circumstances determine who is who today and tomorrow.
Ironically, to some group, Mr. Dino Melaye should not even have been given the chance to have a space among human government; he should have been locked up in a cage because of his thuggery and fighting behaviour in the house, which happened back in 2010. Fact! Some said he has no place in our politics. However, the same destructive thug, as he was called by many, has remained in the house till date and he is returning again. There is an untold story and that is, How did he emerge victorious in the 2019 general election?
To some people, his fighting and thuggish behavior is his only manner of conversation in the legislation. Truly, that might be the case, But if we must be realistic, does the future of Nigeria lies in the hands of fat men and women sleeping on duty? Truth be told, He breathes fire and fury, and fire and fury as we all know, literally wrecks havoc. This then calls to question the voting behaviors of the electorates. Especially his constituency who voted him in, are they advocates of fire and furry? Either yes or no, there is an untold story about this mysterious figure in the Nigerian political scene!
