Prominent Kogi-born politician and a member of the National Assembly, on Wednesday, attacked Kogi State Governor, Yahaya Bello, for giving a hug to the paramount ruler in the state which is against the law and norms of the land.

The picture which surfaced on social media has gone viral, with Melaye commenting that Bello displayed a despicable act by hugging the monarch.

The lawmaker asked if Governor Aminu Tambuwal or Governor Nasir El-Rufai would disregard the elderly monarch in such a manner as Bello did.

Melaye wrote on his Instagram page: “Very disrespectful and rude Governor Yahaya Bello hugging his paramount traditional ruler Alhaji Ado Ibrahim who is over 90 years.

“Can Gov Tambuwal hug the Sultan? Or will El-rufai hug the Emir of Zaria? If this disobedient child will not respect the seat of Ohinoyi, he should respect the age of HRM. Home training is not a gift.”

Melaye, who recently declared his intention to run for the state governorship, is making moves to unseat the governor during the governorship election scheduled to hold in November this year.
