Politics is responsible for poverty and hunger in Nigeria -Dino Melaye
Senator Dino Melaye from Kogi West, on Wednesday acknowledged that Nigeria is currently suffering from hunger and poverty, emphasising that, Nigerian leaders including himself must repent, and address the challenge.
Melaye, admitted the state of the nation, while displaying a video of him speaking at The Osasu Show Symposium held in Abuja on his official twitter handle, @dino_melaye.
The Kogi West senator wrote, “Nigerian leaders including me must repent and sincerely deal with hunger and poverty. Nigerians deserve better” Melaye.
Speaking as one of the panellists at the symposium had said, “When you speak the truth, you die, when you lie, you die; so it is better to speak the truth and die. I may sound very unpopular but I will speak the truth. Apart from militocracy, politics is responsible for poverty and hunger in Nigeria.
Melaye added that “As I speak to you, the problem why we are where we are is because of trust. There is no trust between the governed and those governing.
Meanwhile, the senator was booed at the Notting Hill Carnival in the United Kingdom, on Monday, while addressing Nigerians at the event, with some of the Nigerians calling him “ole” which in English means “thief”.
