Nigerians have taken to the Instagram page of popular politician Dino Melaye, to comment on his recent car acquisitions.
The former senator is known for using his social media platforms to either comment on politics or shows off his new collections of expensive cars. Melaye takes pride in his luxurious cars and he does not care what anyone has to say about them.
While some fans and followers hail him for his love for cars and the amount of money he splashes on them, others are not impressed and they waste no time in telling him.
Legit.ng earlier reported that the politician recently acquired two bulletproof cars worth N726million and a vintage car. Melaye bought a 1977 corvette, a Mercedes-Benz G-Wagon Limousine, and a Toyota Land Cruiser. According to reports, the bulletproof cars were customised.

As expected, Nigerians have shared their opinions about the politician's new acquisitions. A commenter noted that the former senator shouldn’t be criticised for buying luxurious cars as long as it made him happy. He noted that he would do the same if he were in his shoes.
Melaye shared the comment on his Instagram page, thanked the commenter and told him to tell others.

But it did not deter people who had a contrary opinion. Responding to the former senator’s post, a commenter identified as Jzahwuu demanded to know the business the senator was into or the companies he owned that got him the luxurious cars.
Making a reference to businessmen like Aliko Dangote and Femi Otedola, Jzahwuu said nobody would question them if they acquired properties worth billions because everyone knew about their businesses.
The commenter noted that the politician was boldly posting his car collections while his constituency lived on less than $2 a day. According to Jzahwuu, if the politician has a conscience, he would cater to his local government than buy more cars.
