Ondo Women To Protest Melaye’s Attack Against Tinubu

Remi Tinubu-Dino MelayeCondemnations have continued to trail the alleged verbal assault of Senator Oluremi Tinubu by Senator Dino Melaye with the All Progressives Congress (APC) women and other groups in Ondo State, are currently staging a protest against the Kogi West senator.

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 yesterday in Akure, the State capital, 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 Senate Committee Chairman on the FCT 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.

She pointed out that the attack was the height of legislative rascality ever perpetrated by any lawmaker in the country even as she stressed that Melaye has misrepresented the people of Kogi West, who elected him.

The statement, therefore, 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”.

Olasehinde-Vincente called on women to join the procession slated for today in Akure.
