Dino Melaye has further confirmed that be out of power is never be out of touch with the media and controversies. Dino, the most famous Senator in the 8th and 9th senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria before the rerun which he lost to Sen. Smart turned 46 on Tuesday, January 7, 2020, and decided to rock Burj Khalifa in Dubai. He, his father and his children have been in the United Arab Emirates’ city since December 2019.
The former lawmaker who is known for flamboyant lifestyle especially flaunting exotic cars and wears, took to his Instagram account to share pictures of his birthday celebration to ease the tension amongst his political supporters and fans but probably hype tension of his political enemies.

Dino’s firmness in the wake of his political ordeal proved that despite being voted out from the Senate where he has been since 2015 and being denied the opportunity to run for the governorship seat of Kogi state, life still goes on.
No wonder he celebrated his first birthday in 7 years outside power like it was his first in his over four decades of living.
The former senator gathered all the Nigerian big boys in Dubai including Former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Yakubu Dogara, Instagram celebrity Hushpuppi, and pro-democracy activist Deji Adeyanju, under one roof to wine and dine.
One of the pictures Dino shared that kept some Nigerians talking was the one he snapped with two gorgeously dressed young ladies. But one picture that may prompt the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) to shout is the picture the former senator took with Deji.
Deji has been a thorn on the flesh of the APC led government. He joined forces with other activists in the country to demand better leadership and hence, he was labelled a member of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
He was flown to Dubai recently after he was mob by pro-President Muhammadu Buhari protesters in Abuja. But the sense in partying with an embattled member of the opposition can only be explained by him.
