Mrs. Funmilayo Olumodeji, the woman leader of  an All Progressives Congress (APC) group, has said that Senator Oluremi Tinubu should apologise to Senator Dino Melaye.

Olumodeji said Senator Tinubu did not do the right thing by pointing at Melaye, whatever the matter was.

According to the women leader, “The person to blame for the disagreement is Senator Remi Tinubu. Even though we were not at the meeting where the altercation took place and may not know what led to the disagreement or who started it because it was a closed-door meeting, yet I was well briefed on the development.

“From what I gathered, it was Senator Tinubu in her usual character that started it by hurling insults at Senator Melaye and calling him names. It does not speak well of a senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria who is serving her second term. “

Olumodeji, who spoke with Punch in an interview, slammed Senator Tinubu, saying she has not spoken up for any cause that has to do with women.

She said “She has clearly deviated from her calling as a representative of the women cause. Where was Remi Tinubu when our girls were being kidnapped, raped, forced into marriage or even killed and thrown into canals?

“Even, the President’s wife had at one time or the  other added her voice, but it is not on  record  that Senator  Tinubu had joined in the struggle  for the liberation  of womanhood. Today, kerosene sells for N200 a litre; we did not hear her uttering a word about this but instead, she has been busy insulting her colleagues and gathering women by spending millions of naira on them to protest on her behalf.”

Senator Dino Melaye reportedly threatened to beat up and impregnate Senator Oluremi Tinubu.
