Senator Melaye Refutes Reports About Insulting Mrs Tinubu

Sahara Reporters a New York based online news platform had reported yesterday that Senator representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye had threatened to ‘impregnate’ Remi Tinubu, the wife of the All Progressives Congress (APC) National Leader. The Senator, however took to his Twitter handle saying that Sahara Reporters are just blackmailers and liars.


He wrote;

Also in a statement personally issued by him in Abuja, Melaye said the allegation “is the narrative of the attack dogs of demagogues who have decided to turn Nigeria upside down for failing to choose leaders for Senators. He said;

“It is pertinent to note that the incredulously machinated misinformation was orchestrated by forces bent on destabilising the upper chambers of the Nigerian Parliament for selfish reasons. “One of the mushroom and faceless online platforms used to promote the ill-fated and calumnious write-up has been notorious for serving as the propagandist machinery of political commercialists who are pushing for the extension of their fiefdom to the National Assembly. “While I remain unimpeachably committed to the leadership of the Senate, I believe the respected arm of government charged with the onerous responsibility of law making should be given the independence to conduct its business. “It is untrue and malicious; the allegation is the narrative of the attack dogs of demagogues who have decided to turn Nigeria upside down for failing to choose leaders for Senators. “I am a responsible Nigerian, role model and a champion of anti-corruption and equity which my party (APC) stands for. I therefore urge the general public to discountenance the libelous publication as I will continue to respect the history, culture and excellence of my Kogi West people on the floor of the Senate. The true threats to the current Republic are those who believe that a Nigeria that is not led by them must not exist.”

    If as you say : ‘libelous publication’ is the news report, then, I expect you to sue the media outfit immediately, because your integrity is at stake. Failing to do that means, you actually committed the act. No amount of brainwashing the public will work.
