The “honourable” senator made his intentions to impregnate Remi Tinubu known on Tuesday, July 12, 2016 in no other place than the “hallowed” senate chamber.
The “honourable” senator made his intentions known on Tuesday, July 12, 2016 in no other place than the “hallowed” senate chamber.
Mrs Tinubu’s error was that she disagreed with calls for President Muhammadu Buhari’s impeachment due to forgery charges against Senate President, Bukola Saraki and his deputy, Ike Ekweremadu.
“Look this is not Bourdillon (where Mrs Tinubu’s husband, APC National Leader, Bola Tinubu, lives). I will beat you up...impregnate you and nothing will happen,” Melaye said.
Dino also used the F word in addressing Mrs Tinubu and later said he would not want to be with her ‘because it would be like being with a dried-up Bonga (dry fish).’
“I would rather be with a more robust and beautiful woman like Stella Oduah,” Melaye said.
Despite the outrage caused by his comments, Dino Melaye has refused to apologize and has instead added insult to injury by saying that Mrs Tinubu can’t get pregnant because she has crossed the age of menopause.
“It is not biologically correct for me to impregnate her because she has attained menopause,” Melaye said today, July 14, while addressing journalists at the Senate.
Dino Melaye has never been known to have good manners, but these comments are too disgusting for words.
How can a lawmaker speak about women, his colleagues for that matter, with such disdain? Where did Nigeria go wrong and how did such an offensive fellow end up in our legislature?
Dino’s comments show that he has probably been fantasizing about his colleagues and sizing them up sexually. His threat to beat up Remi Tinubu also confirms previous allegations of domestic abuse against him.
In developed countries, Dino Melaye’s comments would earn him sexual harassment, and even assault charges, but this is Nigeria, senators are untouchable here.
How can Nigerians expect such a person to make laws to benefit the country? Dino Melaye belongs in a garage and even that place would be too good for him.
It’s unfortunate that the likes of Dino Melaye are allowed to represent the hardworking people of this country, but this outburst should serve as a lesson to Nigerians on who to vote and who not to even consider during the 2019 elections.
It’s also disheartening that Saraki has not deemed it fit to investigate the incident or even issue an apology on behalf of his unrepentant disciple.
One can only hope, that Nigeria will soon boast of legislators who are worthy of the title and who will prove themselves truly deserving of the term “Honourable”.
