…Demands Unreserved Public Apology
Mr. Oshiomhole expressed anger over the comment, dismissing Mr. Melaye as a man who cannot maintain a decent matrimonial home hence his descend into pedestrian level to “cargorise” women as if they were pieces of items for purchase.
The Governor who is now demanding public apology from Mr. Melaye said he only displayed his hollowness by delving into a matter as private as his marriage to his heartthrob.
“Our attention has been drawn to the unprovoked verbal assault launched by one Senator Dino Melaye on the Governor of Edo State, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, while making a contribution on the floor of the Senate on the need to patronize made-in-Nigeria goods, the Governor said in a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr Peter Okhiria.
“As a “nephew” of the Governor and members of the same party, we expected Senator Melaye to tender an unreserved public apology to the Comrade Governor, to no avail.
“It is an open secret that Senator Melaye cannot maintain a decent matrimonial home hence he could descend to this pedestrian level of using the hallowed chambers to “cargorise” women as if they were pieces of items for purchase.
“Any responsible individual that is truly worth to be called a Senator, a position that convokes respect, decorum and decent public conduct, should know the limits of his verbal diarrhea.
“The liberty of free speech guaranteed in the hallowed chambers does not impose lunacy on anyone to disparage other Nigerians, let alone pry into their matrimony in a very derisive manner.
“We had intended to ignore this uncomplimentary comment as one of the several empty displays of the Senator, but the fact that it tends to reduce women to pieces of tissue calls for this response.
“As we probed into Dino Melaye’s humanity, we were reminded that he is a man known for his vainglorious rodomontade and the childish display of his ostentatious lifestyle complements his love for foreign items,” the statement read.
