Dino Melaye, Senator representing Kogi West, caused a stir at the red chamber of the Senate during yesterday’s plenary.
Melaye knelt to beg the Senate to help salvage workers of Kogi State from dying.
He lamented that the civil servants were now Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs).
The lawmaker added that the workers were suffering and needed immediate help from an external body.
