Senator Dino Melaye of Kogi state was booed off the stage while addressing Nigerian carnival goers at London’s Notting Hill Carnival on Monday, August 28, 2017.
The representative of the Kogi West senatorial district was continuously interrupted by sections of Nigerians in the crowd while he was on stage giving a speech.
The lawmaker continued speaking while the crowd kept heckling him to leave the stage with some even shouting “Ole (thief)” several times.
After hurrying up his speech, Senator Melaye exited the stage with another rendition of his signature ‘Ajekun Iya’ song and dance targeted at “the enemies of Nigeria”.
While he was speaking, the lawmaker had praised the country’s standing in the world and promised that it’ll be greater soon.
He said, “I congratulate Nigerians, and I say there’s no country like Nigeria. And for those of you who are here, you better come back home because very soon, by the grace of God, we’ll be greater.”
