National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, has reacted angrily to a rant by Senator Dino Melaye representing Kogi West to the vow to physically assault Tinubuâ€™s wife, Oluremi.Tinubu in a tweet posted by his media aide, Mr. Muyiwa Dare on Wednesday dared Melaye to carry out his threat.
Oluremi Tinubu who currently representing Lagos Central at the upper legislative chambers had an altercation with Melaye over moves by some members of the Senate to impeach President Muhammadu Buhari .
At the executive session of the Senate on Tuesday, Melaye reportedly vowed to beat Senator Tinubu over the forgery case against Principal Officers of the Senate and the attempt to impeach the President.
Tinubu had expressed disapproval of the tactics suggested by Dino Melaye, who was of the opinion that commencing impeachment proceedings against President Muhammadu Buhari will make the Executive back down on the trial.
Reacting to the development, Asiwaju Tinubu vowed to deal with Dino Melaye if he took any untoward action against his wife.
Speaking through his spokesman, Sunday Dare, Tinubu said Melayeâ€™s comments was a major low for him.
Dare, writing on his Twitter handle, said: â€œAnd if Dino thinks nothing will happen if he dare beats up another Senator, then he must be living in a fools paradiseâ€.
â€œThings will happen. Dino Melaye sunk to the lowest ever today.
â€œFrom this point, it is downhill for him. A disgrace to the Senate of the Republic.â€
