Daily Trust - - INSIDE POLITICS - By Muideen Olaniyi

Four law­mak­ers from the La­gos State House of As­sem­bly, yes­ter­day, held a meet­ing with the Na­tional Chair­man of the All Pro­gres­sives Congress (APC), Chief John Odigie-Oye­gun, to reg­is­ter their dis­plea­sure over the ongoing al­ter­ca­tion be­tween Se­na­tor Oluremi Tin­ubu and Se­na­tor Dino Me­laye.

The four leg­is­la­tors, who were from La­gos Cen­tral Se­na­to­rial Dis­trict, ex­pressed dis­may over Se­na­tor Me­laye’s use of deroga­tory state­ment against their rep­re­sen­ta­tive.

The Deputy Speaker of the La­gos State House of As­sem­bly, Mr Wa­siu Sanni, who spoke on be­half of the oth­ers, said that Me­laye’s ac­tion was ca­pa­ble of dis­suad­ing hus­bands from al­low­ing their wives to par­tic­i­pate in pol­i­tics.

Sanni, who flayed what he called “con­spir­acy of si­lence” on the part of the Se­nate, said that the Up­per Cham­ber of the Na­tional As­sem­bly al­lowed the is­sue to fes­ter.
