I Never Had An Affair With Dino Melaye, Omo Agege’s Media Aide Opens Up
Newly appointed media aide of Ovie Omo-Agege, Deputy Senate president, Lara Owoeye-Wise says she was never involved in an intimate relationship with Dino Melaye, the senator representing Kogi West Senatorial District.
She “umbrage” against her appointment has shown that Nigerians need to do more on civic engagement.
Owoeye-Wise came under fire on social media after she was appointed as a media aide to Omo-Agege.
Some social media users alleged that the aide and Dino Melaye, senator representing Kogi West, have had an intimate relationship.
But in a statement on Tuesday, she denied the allegation.
Owoeye-Wise also said she does not want her principal “to bear any stain by association.”
“As unfortunate as this incident is, the umbrage against my appointment is an unfortunate showcase of sobering reality to well-meaning Nigerians that there is so much we need to do on civic engagement as the future of Nigeria rests on the quality of our followership which will produce future leaders,” she said.
“I shall resist the urge to join issues on the salacious insinuation of any intimate relationship between Senator Dino Melaye and me.
