The current economic recession does not seem to be affecting flamboyant Nigerian senator, Dino Melaye, as he is reportedly in possession of a 93-year-old Rolls Royce estimated at N180 million.
A Trent source said, “Senator Dino Melaye is very smart, he actually got the car from Las Vegas two years ago. At that time, he was busy committed with anti-graft crusade as Executive Secretary of Anti-Corruption Network (ACN) but decided to keep it in secrecy.”
A Google check on the car indicated that the Rolls Royce is a rare collectible item that is not only scarce but very expensive.
Checks have confirmed that the Rolls Royce which is a 1923 model is 93 years old, and is used by only a few persons in a special grade.
Mr. Melaye, a first-time senator who represents Kogi Central, owns a fleet of luxury and antiquated cars worth billions of Naira.
He has at least 28 of the expensive cars parked at his upmarket residence in Maitama Abuja, according to the news website, Sahara Reporters.
In February, Mr. Melaye, who once led a nongovernmental organisation campaigning against corruption, posed in a 2015 Slingshot estimated to cost about N4.78 Million.
