Senator Dino Melaye who represents Kogi West senatorial district at the National Assembly is a man who likes luxury cars, from all indications. The chairman of the senate committee on media has been known to drive beautiful cars, the acquisition of which he often ascribes to God’s blessings. In light of the current economic crisis in Nigeria however, not many may be willing to cheer on a public official making costly acquisitions.








According to Sahara Reporters, Senator Dino Melaye may not have cared much about such sentiments while allegedly making his latest purchase, a 2015 Slingshot estimated to cost $24,000 (about N4.78 million).

The beautiful red car bears the senator’s trademark plate number ‘DINO’ and is surely a wonder to behold but may also attract critical appraisal from citizens who have increasingly advocated for frugality on the part of government officials.
