Former Senator representing Kogi West in the upper chamber, Dino Melaye has disclosed he will use his movie roles to fight for a better society.
He made the claims to IgbereTV reporters in Abuja during the premiere of a new movie he acted, entitled, ‘Lemonade’.
He said, “I brought my political experience to bear and to say that in changing the society everyone should be involved in it.
The message is that we must have a nation and a society where leaders must be responsible, where followers must ask questions, where every Nigerian must decide to either work in the light of our creative altruism or we perish in the darkness of destructive selfishness.”
Dino advised the government to invest in the entertainment industry, noting that it would create employment for the teeming youths and generate revenue for the country.
When asked if he had more talents in acting than in politics, considering the role he played in the movie.
He answered that he was good in both fields. He said, “It wasn’t a true-life story but I can say it also juxtaposed my position about a just and egalitarian society, having a society where equity, justice and egalitarianism become the order of the day.”
