Senator Dino Melaye, representing Kogi west senatorial district at the National Assembly, has come under severe attack for his uncomplimentary remarks against the wife of Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo state, Iara Oshiomhole, Vanguard reports.

Melaye, speaking on a motion titled “The need for patronisation on made in Nigeria goods in Nigeria“, suggested that Adams Oshiomole should not have married a woman who is not from Nigeria.

Contributing to the motion by Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, Melaye was quoted as saying that Nigerians should not emulate Governor Oshiomhole, who, he said, opted not to “patronise made-in-Nigeria women but a foreign one.”

“We will also move in order to encourage the made in Nigeria products in Nigeria, begin to talk about Made in Nigeria women.

“Apologies to my uncle, the governor of Edo state, we must as a people stop paying dowries in dollars and pounds. It is time for my colleagues here to become born again,” he said.

But reacting to the drama, in a statement yesterday, John Mayaki, a former aide to Oshiomhole, said: “Melaye veered off the radar on the issue of made-in-Nigeria products which for me cannot and should not include made-in-Nigeria women, if the intention of the initiator of the motion is not to be misconstrued. Iara Oshiomhole is doing well for Nigeria and Edo people and does not deserve the categorization Melaye attempted to taint her with.

“Mrs. Oshiomhole’s We Care Trust, her pet project whose goal is to care for the welfare of children, provides education for the girl-child, vocational training for the youths and empowerment for women has just empowered about 36 individuals across the 18 local government areas of Edo State.

“She had envisioned a society where, though challenging, resources are equitably and sustainably managed for the benefit of all particularly in a manner that the poor and needy can thrive and succeed.

“I want to call on Nigerians, including my friend Dino Melaye to encourage Mrs. Oshiomhole to do more for the Nigerian child than the confusion he attempted to make between made-in-Nigeria product and made-in-Nigeria Women. I want to congratulate her for the feat her pet project, “We Care Trust”, achieved on Wednesday just when Melaye was making his uncomplimentary remark.”

Some aggrieved Nigerians have recently called on the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to investigate Melaye.

The serving senator, who has no made-in-Nigeria cars among his fleet, has been criticized by Nigerians who are demanding he reveals his source of wealth.
