In a press statement today, controversial lawmaker, Senator Dino Melaye – representing Kogi West Senatorial District said fellow senator Madam Remi Tinubu called him a ‘thug’ and a ‘dog,’ in their recent confrontation at the red chambers. If this was actually the true picture, this is my verdict.
A thug and a dog she called him.
First, a thug she called him. What is a thug known for? Fighting, public brawl! So Dino responded: I’ll beat you up.
Second, a dog she called him. What is a dog known for? Sex anyhow, anywhere, wherever! So Dino responded: I’ll rape and impregnate you.
Inasmuch as Senator Dino Melaye is everything wrong, in his animosity towards Senator Remi Tinubu, Madam Remi is also blameworthy for not measuring her words. And knowing the personality of Mr. Dino, the man will gladly embrace such an opportunity to flare up without caution. Both of them are equally wrong.
Women can sometimes put words into your mouth and before you know what is going on, you are already in a mess. But a wise man knows how to handle such a disrespectful scene when responding in words or disposition.
It was the responsibility of Mr. Melaye to remain composed as a man while Mrs. Tinubu was making spite of him publicly. When a woman realizes her mistake, she’ll keep quiet and beg you. Women are very emotional. I may be wrong though.
However, if you choose to go rough with her in a public disagreement, oh, they are masters in the game of public disgrace, which Senator Dino failed to realise. Fighting the wife of ‘Jagaban’ publicly is absolutely unwise. I’m sure he has learnt his lessons, or better yet, he will soon learn his lessons.
With this unfortunate incident, don’t be surprised, a breakaway (faction) from the APC by aggrieved members (Bukola Saraki, Dino Melaye and company) might just be in the cards. The crack is very obvious.
