- Dino Melaye, a Nigerian politician, has shared some money to banana hawkers he saw on the road
- Before giving out the money, he counselled them against going around and exposing themselves during the pandemic
- After listening to their woes of economic hardship, Dino gave them money to take care of themselves and their families
A video has emerged of Dino Melaye giving money to some banana hawkers, advising them on the need to stay at home and obey the guidelines on coronavirus.
Before the politician gave the hawkers money, he spoke long to them on how they are endangering their lives by going out and selling their wares during the pandemic.
He said that they may not know when they could come in contact with any infected customer. One of the women said that though she knew the danger of doing such, she could not afford to stay at home.
She said she has six children to feed and hearing them cry of hunger is something she cannot bear. The woman added that though she may be able to bear the lockdown effect, her kids cannot.
After listening to their predicament, the politician, therefore, said he would give them some cash so they can get their needs sorted and observe lockdown rule.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Dino said that he owes his wealth to hard work and not government contracts.
He said this during an Instagram live chat with Dele Momodu of Ovation. When the media guru asked if he does not have anything to hide, Dino said that he is perhaps the most investigated Nigerian.
The politician said that he has on many occasions invited men of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) to look at his wealth.
Dino added that the only thing the EFCC has not probed about him is where is placenta is buried, a thing he said only his mother knows.
