Our politicians have a way of covering their identities from the masses that they have sworn to serve, politicians who have been involved in the identity controversy are in the numbers and one who stands out is Dr. Evan(s) Enwerem who claimed that he was a twin who was convicted for a crime in the United Kingdom, a story that was corroborated by his mother. True or not, the former Senate President of Nigeria went to the grave with the controversy and years down the line another controversy is in the offing as outspoken politician Senator Dino Melaye comes under the magnifying glass of the law with the aim of finding out if he is who really claims to be. Here are some incredible facts about the man who is currently in the face of the storm
1 He (Senator Melaye) was born on a New Year’s Day, January 1st 1974 to be precise
2 He was born in the ancient city of Kano, the home of the groundnut pyramids
3 Believe it or not at age 43, he is unmarried after ten years of marriage to his first wife Tokunbo which ended in divorce due to claims of domestic violence
4 He was once a member of the People’s Democratic Party after which he defected to the ruling party, the All Progressives Congress (APC)
This little is what is known about the man whose past is presently being questioned. That the facts will change only the future will tell.
