Former governor of Lagos State and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu, yesterday, described Dino Melaye as a disgrace to the Senate.
His reaction came against the backdrop of last Tuesday’s shouting match between his wife, Senator Oluremi Tinubu, and Melaye during the closed-door session of the Senate.
Melaye, who represents Kogi West senatorial district in the Senate, had reportedly threatened to beat up the APC leader’s wife during the altercation between them, boasting allegedly that nothing would happen if he did so.
But Tinubu in a statement by his spokesman, Sunday Dare, yesterday, warned Melaye that something would happen, if he dared it.
“Dino Melaye sank to the lowest ever on Tuesday. From this point, it is downhill for him. A disgrace to the Senate of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
“If Dino thinks nothing will happen if he dares to beat up another senator, then he must be living in a fool’s paradise. Things will happen,” Tinubu’s spokesman wrote on Twitter.
Efforts, last night, to reach Melaye for his reaction failed as calls to his mobile number were not returned; he also failed to respond to text messages sent to his phone.
