Senator Ahmed Bola Tinubu has dared Dino Melaye to beat up his, Mrs Remi Tinubu, and await the consequences.
The former Governor of Lagos State and a National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, reacting to Tuesday threat by Melaye to beat up his wife, who represents Lagos Central in the senate, said Melaye should go ahead to beat up his wife and see whether anything would happen.
Mrs Tinubu had expressed disapproval of the tactics suggested by Dino Melaye, who was of the opinion that commencing impeachment proceedings against President Muhammadu Buhari and expulsion of fellow Senators opposed to Saraki will make the Executive back down on the trial.
But reacting to Mrs Tinubu’s comments, Melaye thundered: “Look this is not Bourdillon (referring to the famous Lagos residence of Mrs Tinubu’s politician husband). I will beat you up, ….. impregnate you and nothing will happen”
Melaye explosion was during an executive session, Tuesday, over the forgery case against Principal Officers of the Senate.
Reacting to the statement, Bola Tinubu’s spokesman, Sunday Dare, through his official Twitter handle said Melaye’s outburst was unbecoming of a senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, saying it was a low point for him.
Dare said on Wednesday: “And if Dino thinks nothing will happen if he dare beats up another Senator, then he must be living in a fools paradise”.
“Things will happen. Dino Melaye sunk to the lowest every today.
“From this point, it is downhill for him. A disgrace to the Senate of the Republic.”
