 Ondo Women To Protest Melaye’s Attack Against Senator Tinubu

Daniel-Dino-Melaye-In-The-Headline-News-NowThe All Progressives Congress (APC) women and other groups in Ondo State will today protest against Senator Dino Melaye in Akure, the state capital, for “threatened Senator Oluremi Tinubu”at the Senate last Tuesday.
Their coordinator and former member of the state House of Assembly, Mrs. Fola Olasehinde-Vincente, described the attack on Tinubu as “too harsh on the Nigerian women”.
In a statement, the former lawmaker representing Ose Constituency said Melaye had records of assaults and physical attacks on women, especially with his first wife, Tokunbo.
The statement noted that the action of the Kogi senator was “indecent and shameful”.
“Melaye could flex his muscles if he so will, but not by being a bully in the Senate as evident in the way he sprang up from his seat and charged towards Senator Tinubu and threatened to physically assault her,” Olasehinde-Vincente said.
The statement said the attack was the height of legislative rascality ever perpetrated by any lawmaker in the country.
It added the lawmaker has misrepresented the people of Kogi West, who elected him.
The group called on every woman across the globe to rise up against any assault on fellow women, saying “an attack on one woman is an attack on all women”.
She urged women to join the procession slated for today in Akure.
A member of House of Representatives, representing Ibadan North Federal Constituency, Abiodun Awoleye-Dada, said yesterday that the attack on Senator Tinubu by Melaye showed that he has no respect for women.
The two-term member of House of Representatives described Melaye’s statement as unfortunate and uncultured.
The lawmaker, who spoke in Ibadan, criticised the way the senator conducts himself in the Senate.
According to him, the attack on Senator Tinubu was a show of shame and disgrace to men who perform their duties in their homes.
