Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Is­mail Mu­dashir

Sen­a­tors from Lagos State yes­ter­day tack­led Se­na­tor Dino Me­laye (APC, Kogi West) for ver­bally as­sault­ing their col­league, Se­na­tor Oluremi Tin­ubu.

The sen­a­tors, in­clud­ing Ba­reehu Olug­benga Ashafa (APC, Lagos East) and Solomon Olamilekan Ade­ola (APC, Lagos West) said they are ready to tes­tify against Me­laye.

“We dis­so­ci­ate our­selves from the com­ments and be­hav­ior of Se­na­tor Dino Me­laye (APC, Kogi West) at the Ex­ec­u­tive Ses­sion of 12th July, 2016 as we rep­re­sent peo­ple known for finer char­ac­ter and noble cul­ture of so­cial in­ter­ac­tion.

“We equally state that we will be part of ef­forts to in­still and en­shrine deco­rum and gen­tle­manly con­duct as­so­ci­ated with the Up­per Cham­ber of the Na­tional Assem­bly of the Fed­eral Repub­lic of Nige­ria.

“While con­demn­ing the use of any vul­gar and un-sen­a­to­rial lan­guage in all ram­i­fi­ca­tions, we par­tic­u­larly take of­fense to the use of such abu­sive and den­i­grat­ing words against the per­son of distin­guished Se­na­tor Oluremi Tin­ubu (APC- Lagos Cen­tral).

“Such words greatly de­meaned the fe­male gen­der and the hal­lowed cham­ber of the Se­nate,” the state­ment said.
