Senator Dino Melaye has said that he no longer has time to dwell on his disagreement with colleague, Remi Tinubu.

Melaye made the comment after Mrs Tinubu wrote the Inspector General of Police, Ibrahim Idris, asking for police protection due to Melaye’s recent attack on her.

“In view of Senator Melaye’s antecedent, particularly in the House of Representatives, where a brawl led by him had led to the untimely death of a member, I have decided not to ignore his threat to my life. Therefore, I’m compelled to urge you to use your good offices to provide me with adequate security,” Mrs Tinubu wrote on Monday, July 18, 2016.

Speaking to Vanguard in reaction to the letter however, Melaye said: “Great minds don’t dwell on issues, they act and move on. I have moved on.”

Melaye had, on Tuesday, July 12, threatened to beat and impregnate Mrs Tinubu.
