A group, Kogi Youths for Good Governance has called on the Senate to suspend Senator Dino Melaye due to his recent attack on Senator Oluremi Tinubu.

The group made the call on Thursday, July 21, 2016, during a peaceful protest to the National Assembly, The Nation reports.

“Such misconduct from Dino has not only brought disgrace to his constituents, but to the National Assembly,” the group’s coordinator, Mr Leke Richard said.

“Enough of this national and global embarrassment from this lawmaker, who does not know how to fight for the interest of his constituents but against his fellow lawmakers.

“We want him to be suspended first while we fast-track the process of his recall from his senatorial district," he added.
