Group threatens to sue Melaye over verbal assault on Remi Tinubu

By Olaolu Oladipo, Lagos 

A group within the Lagos State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Asiwaju Change Movement (ACM) urged the member representing Kogi West in the Senate, Senator Dino Melaye to beg his counterpart from Lagos Central District, Oluremi Tinubu. 

In a statement by the group, failure to do so will attract the full wrath of the law over what it described as ‘unruly’ behaviour he displayed towards Tinubu at the National Assembly last week. 

The group, in a statement signed by its National Coordinator, Mrs. Simisola Jegede said, “We cannot but react to what we can call Melaye’s show of shame and public display of uncivilized conduct. 

“The ugly scenario that occurred at the Nigeria’s’ upper legislative chambers last week Tuesday where Melaye who is supposed to be a perfect gentle man and responsible lawmaker breached peace and threatened to beat up a democratically-elected fellow Senator, who is a clear symbol of a virtuous woman and wife of our revered mentor and national leader of APC,Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. 

“As the founder and National Coordinator,ACM International, I want to on behalf of the movement at home and abroad describe the conduct of Melaye as not only disrespectful, provocative and confrontational but as well posing a serious threat to both the APC and the unity of the whole nation at large.” 

The statement said “It is advisable that Dino Melaye should be subjected to proper medical investigation and thorough mental assessment.

“The entire nation should equally remember him in their prayers because he has really conducted himself in a way that is at variance to what is(are)expected of a responsible lawmaker”.
