5. Highlights & Scandals in Dino Melaye's political career
Senator Dino has had an illustrious political career up till now. He felt the need to join politics really early on while paying close attention to his self-appointed mentor who was a former military administrator of Lagos State. During his stay in university, he became a prominent and very influential student union leader both within his school and within the national setup of the National Association of Nigerian Students (NANS). Dino will later be appointed to the Youths Advisory Council as Chairman by then-President Chief Olusegun Obasanjo
Melaye forayed into partisan politics and got elected to the National Assembly in 2007 as a member representing the Kabba-Bunu / Ijumu Federal constituency at the Federal House of Representatives. This period saw him gain national prominence as he made himself very visible with his activism antics.
By 2011 Melaye had lost his chance to return to the national assembly but will later return as a senator in 2015 when he won the election over PDP's candidate Smart Adeyemi.
By 2019, Dino had already become a household name due to his constant run-in with law enforcement units of the country but will however get re-elected to the Red chambers during the 2019 general elections that saw him defeat same Smart Adeyemi. That election came into question and has been put aside prompting a rerun that is to play-out later this year.
Dino Melaye has been a very fortunate man and has received several awards and special recognitions from various associations and groups. Some of these awards include 2017 and 2018 Senator of the Year, Best Honourable Rep. of the Year, Protector of the Youth, Epitome of Servant, Youth Libra for Award, the Great Motivator of Student, Most Vibrant Honourable Member, 2005 African Parliamentarian of the Year in USA, Most Performed National Legislator and so many others.

The fiery Dino Melaye in Senate
As a political figure with a very strong activism background, Senator Dino has not been shy of getting in the murky waters of controversy. He was a lead actor in the famous 2010 brawl that occurred in the Green chamber which unfortunately had visiting school children attendance. He has remained vocal with his own ideologies and has constantly proclaimed his purported disdain for corruption. He has in most instances spoken off when no other person seems to, making him stand-out in that regard. He has even been vocal against his own party, publicly condemning their policies and actions.
In a notable instance, he boldly stood by Senator Bukola Saraki who was the duly elected President of the Senate against the wishes of his party and did so right to the end of Saraki's tenure in May of 2019. During that four periods, Dino will endure the political wrath of his party and will be seen in very public and partisan controversies that was him arraigned in court for legally acceptable offenses which were however too spurious and persecutory in nature.
He also had running cases with his state governor whom he advised to resign for being incompetent and corrupt. This battle has seen him being dragged to court for several offenses including the false claim of assassination, attempted murder, sponsoring crime, attempted self-harm etc. The senator is currently enjoying some time away from the public and a period of relative peace even as his party keeps him aware of their large political fangs.
