You need mental evaluation, Presidency tells Melaye


The Personal Assistant to President Muhammadu Buhari on Social Media, Lauretta Onochie, has stated that Senator representing Kogi West District, Dino Melaye needs mental evaluation.

Melaye on Thursday asked Buhari to apologize to the National Assembly over his recent comment that some lawmakers have spent a long time without doing anything.

Speaking last week, the President had wondered what members of the National Assembly have been doing, even when some of them have spent over a decade as lawmakers.

However, Onochie stated that, soon, Melaye will come to terms with the fact that the National Assembly doesn’t belong to him.

In a post on her Twitter account, Onochie wrote: “It’s an absurdity that Melaye, who is standing trial for alleged criminal offences, who in a suicide bid, jumped out of a moving vehicle and whose obsessive compulsion disorder makes him think he owns the NASS, should be allowed to return to the Senate without proper mental evaluation.

“One day, Dino Melaye, will come to terms that the NASS doesn’t belong to him. In his delusional state and on bail, he’s shamefully back to his clowning.

“I would hope that he confines his rascality to unsuccessfully suppressing opposing views in the Senate. Let the President be.”
