"When u were in power what was Nigeria producing? Sell all these and other properties you have and build a company in your constituency. Employ your people there and start prodcing something for Nigerians and for exportation. From there, we will know you meant well for Nigeria not Hypocrisy."

"Even Dangote, the richest man in Africa does not have such cars parked in his garage. He is just a preacher of what he doesn't practice. Only the fools will heed to him."
"Oga Dino good afternoon sir , you have money to open one of those companies even if it is toothpick. Since you have your company abroad, try and get one in Nigeria."
@Ileshababa also added:
Sir, when did that start? If it started since when your party was in power. What were you doing then? Also, sir, are you aware that INNOSON MOTORS is fully in operation in Nigeria? As an indigenous automobile company, when are you preparing to change your exotic cars to INNOSON.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Melaye was once again critical of the administration of the state by Governor Yahaya Bello.
In a tweet on Saturday, March 6, Melaye described the state as being financially anemic under Governor Bello.
The former federal lawmaker went on to release a new song (in Yoruba) in which he claimed that the governor who was thought to be wise has suddenly forgotten his pledge to the state.
