Dino Melaye has joined other actors to feature in a TV series titled ‘Equity Unbound’, after the Court of Appeal in Abuja on Friday dismissed his appeal against a judgment sacking him as the Kogi West senator.
Concise News understands that Melaye featured as one of the key actors in ‘Equity unbound,” an idea of the Pillars of Hope African Initiative (POHAI).
Speaking on his reasons for joining the TV series, Melaye said it was to expose injustice in the society.
Melaye said: “There is no tension over the verdict of the Appeal Court. Life goes on.
“I’m happy to have participated in the series, especially as it will help correct social problems in the country.
“I am not a green horn in acting because I emerged the best actor during my NYSC programme.
“I am ready to serve this country in any capacity and I feel that participating in the series is another way of contributing my quota in correcting the society ills in Nigeria.
“If I have such opportunity again I won’t hesitate to take it.”
Addressing a press conference, the Country Director of POHAI, Chinyere Onyemekara, said the main focus of the project is on ‘equal rights and social justices in Africa,’ using Nigeria as a case study.
She said: “Equity unbound TV series is a soap opera that holistically ex-ray the quality of justice system in Nigeria and its attendant effect on both the masses, the elites and the government.”
The drama’s director said that Melaye acted the role of Joshua in the series, which is an assemblage of professional actors and politicians.
Other prominent actors including Linc Edochie, Victor Decke, Chief Bruno Iwuola and Paul Sambo also featured in the movie.
This online news medium had reported that the Court of Appeal in Abuja upheld the judgment of the National Assembly Election Petition Tribunal for Kogi that sacked Senator Melaye in August.
The court ordered a fresh election within 90 days in the Senatorial District.
