A video showing Senator Dino Melaye who represents Kogi West senatorial district in the National Assembly hawking groundnuts on the streets of Abuja to remember his humble beginning has resurfaced online.
Wole Streetjournal, who posted the video on Facebook wrote;
“We could be dealing with psycho case unknown to all of us and himself? That’s how it begins and we always relate it to the person’s normal behavior. Dino Malaye needs a double check with a consultant.”
The video shot by AIT was first posted on social media by the Senator sometime in 2016. He had captioned it “I once hawked on the street and today a senator. So keep hope alive and be determined,” he said.
He also wrote, “Remembering my humble background, I also sold hawked too. Keep your dream alive.”
