Asiwaju Tinubu Has No Role in My Political Journey – Dino Melaye

The All Progressives Congress member representing Kogi West Senatorial District, Senator Dino Melaye, on Thursday, said former Lagos State Governor Ahmed Tinubu’s has not played any role in his political journey so far.
Melaye said this while explaining reason he insulted Senator Oluremi Tinubu, during an executive session, Tuesday.
Reacting to the statement purportedly made by leader of the All Progressives Congress, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu, that his political career has come to end, Melaye said the APC leader was no god and cannot determine his political career.
He said: “I want to say that Tinubu is no god. I fear only the God almighty, I fear no soul I only respect souls. So far my political journey to the House of Representatives and the Senate has no political, financial or moral contribution of Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“The God who has brought me this far is mighty, strong and enough to take me further, what God has given me no man can give and what God has given to me no man can take. I want to assure you that this is the true story of what transpired.”
According to the Senator, he insulted Mrs Tinubu after she referred to him as a thug.
Melaye, however, denied using some words reported by the media.
Melaye said he never spoke about impregnating Mrs. Tinubu, whom he said had reached menopause.
He said he did not use “insolent, abusive, degrading and mannerless language against any Senator”.
“How could I have said I would beat and impregnate her at the same time?”, Melaye asked.
Melaye, however, said he was willing to apologise if he had wronged any individual in the matter.
“I am not a super human being, if there are instances where as a human being I have reacted negatively I am also ready to be apologetic about it. But in this particular instance, I have never mentioned anybody’s name, I never even used insolent languages.
He maintained that he is for the down trodden.
“I will continue to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves, I will continue to be a voice to the voiceless.”
