Former lawmaker, Dino Melaye has urged Nigerian politicians to emulate the biblical Zacchaeus and return stolen funds to the poor.
The politician referenced Zacchaeus’ act of repentance which saw him return monies forcefully and illegally collected from the people.
Taking to his official Twitter account, Dino Melaye included himself as part of the politicians that should change their corrupt ways.
”All politicians should also know that the bible recorded Zacchaeus retuned to the poor what he had stolen from them. Let’s emulate him. SDM.”
