The lawmaker can be seen showing off his football skills in pictures he posted on his Instagram.
In a series of pictures shared by the lawmaker in the early hours of Thursday, December 21, other members of parliament were also present on the pitch as the match between the Senate versus House of Representatives ended in a 1-1 draw.
Another match between the National Assembly and a team made up of members of the private sector ended in a 3-1 defeat for the lawmakers.
Melaye can be seen playing the ball on the pitch in some pictures while he was between the posts as a goalkeeper in other pictures.
According to the chairman of the organizing committee, Sen. Tanimu Aduda, the proceeds from the event will be used to cater for the less privileged, orphanages and internally displaced persons (IDP).
Senator Melaye has already been in the news this week for something he did outside of the floors of the National Assembly.
The lawmaker representing Kogi West senatorial district appeared in a music video titled 'Dino' , a song named after him by Nigerian rapper Kach.
He showed up in the music video emerging from a white vintage car wearing a white shirt with the word 'LEGEND' written on it.
