The Senate plenary session today 12th July 2016, witnessed a serious ‘bad blood’ which ensued between Senator Dino Melaye representing Kogi West and Senator Oluremi Tinubu representing Lagos Central of the same party, APC.
To avoid a story that touches the heart, Madam Remi was quickly protected from the rampaging Mr. Dino, who could not control his bitterness towards his fellow lawmaker, a female.
Mr. Dino has a history of public disagreement often resulting to serious brawl even when he was a member of the lower chamber (the House of Representatives) some years back.
Although Senator Dino may be right to some extent over the obvious intimidation of the Senate by the Presidency, but venting his anger so violently on a woman is out of place according to political analysts. Below are a few lines in the altercation between both Senators:
DINO: The Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, must be brought before the Senate to be thoroughly grilled and humiliated for charging the Senate leadership with forgery in court.
REMI: The Senate should not be reduced to a kindergarten where Senators could just issue childish threats.
DINO: I will beat you up on this floor and nothing will happen.
Chai! Nawa o.
But seriously, the Senate has turned into a chamber of comedians and fighters. It’s funny, still, not funny.
