The Governor of Kogi state, Yahaya Bello has said that Senator Dino Melaye is not fit to be in the Senate.

Bello also called on the Senate to make sure its members are made up of people with good character and integrity.

The Governor said this while speaking with newsmen after meeting with Acting President Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

“You see I would rather admonish Nigerians that when a child lacks proper parental care and home upbringing, he constitutes a social menace in the society. And if the society does not take steps to check and correct such a child, he can turn into criminal and take into criminality.

"Then it will be left to government to check such criminality. And if government does not, such a child can cause a serious embarrassment. That is what is happening in Kogi State.

“Then talking of the Senate, let me rather admonish the Senate that it is an institution that is held on very high esteem and I think the Senate and indeed the National Assembly is made up of men of high caliber, high integrity and good character.

“I think it is necessary that the wonderful house should as matter of urgency and as a matter of fact check any social deviant that exists within them before they could be adjudged birds of the same feather. I know they are not of the same feather.”

You will recall that Senator Dino Melaye accused the Kogi state Governor of planning to kill him.
