Selling my cars won’t end Nigeria’s recession, I’ve ordered for more – Melaye
Q:Many believe that you are young and therefore they query the source of your stupendous wealth. How did you get your money?
A: I don’t know about stupendous wealth, but I will say I am a comfortable Nigerian and I have never got any contract from the government contract in my life. I have also never taken any political appointment in my life or a position where I have control over government funds. And I challenge anyone who has any criminal allegation against me to actually come out and present it. With the vigour with which I fought the administration of GEJ, if I had any skeleton in my cupboard, by now it would have been exposed. I am a very transparent Nigerian. I have never stolen from government and I can say it without fear. But at the same time, God is the ultimate giver of legitimate wealth and anyone who really wants to tap into the anointing of getting resources from God should please consult me.
Q: Why do you love cars?
A: I love automobiles and everybody can be passionate about a particular thing. Some can be passionate about homosexuality. They can spend any amount of money to sleep with a man. Some are passionate about occultism. They can buy blood at any amount of money. Some are passionate about diamonds; you can ask Diezani (Alison-Madueke). My passion is automobiles and there is no crime in that and I am very proud of it. Once the automobiles are not products of crime and they are not got from any ill-gotten wealth, then a man should be proud about what he is passionate about. I love automobiles and I am waiting for the next collection.
Q: You have ordered for more cars at this period of economic recession, when many Nigerians, even those from your constituency and senatorial district cannot feed and there is poverty everywhere?
A: Yes, my cars cannot underwrite the recession problems of this country. Even if you sell my cars now, it will not make Nigeria to come out of recession.
