Senator Oluremi Tinubu, from Lagos State, has warned lawmakers against linking the travails of embattled Kogi West Senator, Dino Melaye to the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government.
The lawmaker, who is the wife of Bola Tinubu, national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, gave the warning while the senate deliberated on the matter, on Wednesday.
According to Tinubu, ”If we are talking about a particular issue, we should stay with it but when we are bringing in a government that a lot of people supported to be here, using whatever happened to implicate the government, I think I am against that.
“We should face the issues. I am not in support of what happened to Dino. If we have anything against the executive, we have the leadership here who is supposed to go and meet with Mr. President.
“This government is only three years old compared to 16 years of rot. It has only been in power for 3 years and inherited a lot of trouble.”
Melaye is currently at the intensive unit of the National Hospital, Abuja, after he allegedly jumped off a police vehicle while being transported to Lokoja, the Kogi State capital to face criminal charges.
