The senator representing Kogi West senatorial district, in the National Assembly, Dino Melaye, has denied ever booing President Muhammadu Buhari, on the day the president presented the appropriation bill to the joint session of the National Assembly.
Recalled that the president was reportedly booed by some National Assembly members while appearing before the joint session of the National Assembly to lay the budget draft before the legislators.
But in statement by Gideon Ayodele Media Adviser to Senator Dino Melaye described the information as a cheap lie, hence the decision of Melaye not to respond to it before now
“The attention of Senator Dino Melaye has been drawn to a malicious reference to his person on the social media as one of the lawmakers who booed President Muhammadu Buhari during his 2019 Budget presentation before a joint session of the National Assembly on Wednesday, December 19, 2018.
Ayodele stated further that “Before now, he had refused to refute the mischievous social media fabrication for what is cheap lie. Senator Dino Melaye was not in the National Assembly that day.
” For the avoidance of doubt, Distinguished Senator Dino Melaye was absent at the televised 2019 Budget Presentation session and hereby challenges anyone with contrary proof to come forward with such.
“By his nature, Distinguished Senator Dino Melaye is not one who speaks and cannot defend his action at the same time. Whatever he says or does, he stands by his actions no matter whose ox is gored.
