Nigerians rip Senator Melaye over uncomplimentary statements about Edo Governor Oshiomole's wife #HNNImpact

Chairman, Senate Committee on the Federal Capital Territory, Senator Dino Melaye, has been berated over his uncomplimentary remarks about the wife of Governor Adams Oshiomhole of Edo State, Mrs Iara Oshiomhole. Melaye, who represents Kogi-West senatorial district, while contributing to a motion by Senator Enyinnaya Abaribe, which advocated the patronising of products made in Nigeria, 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.”

A former aide to Governor Oshiomhole, John Mayaki, in a statement, yesterday, 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.
