Popular Nigerian politician, Dino Melaye, has given out a fresh batch of relief materials to help people with the hard economic realities they are facing.
In a short video he posted on Twitter on Thursday, May 7, the politician said that he is giving bags of rice to the less privileged people of Kogi West.
He also cautioned against leaders taking the rice to their houses instead of giving them to the poor, adding that God will fight them if they do so.
Melaye said the rice will not be shared based on party membership. According to him, everybody in the intended area will get.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that a video of Melaye giving money to some banana hawkers emerged as he advised 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.

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 to look at his wealth.
