Dino Melaye mockery of Oshiomhole’s choice of wife in bad taste – By Rt. Hon. Samson Osagie
A former member and Minority Whip of the House of Representatives had taken a swipe at Sen. Dino Melaye for attempting to mock Gov ADAMS Oshiomhole’s choice of wife as comparable to patronizing foreign goods.
Hon. Samson Osagie who describe Sen. Melaye as a supposed friend of members of the National Assembly from Edo State and the Comrade Governor describe as joke taken too far in his attempt to contribute to a motion that calls for very serious and patriotic attention. He called on the Senator to publicly apologize to the Comrade Governor and Edo people for such verbal and unnecessary assault on the matrimony of the first family of Edo State.
Hon. Osagie regretted that were he in the Senate he would have raised a point of order on Sen. Melaye for making provocative and abusive statements that were irrelevant to the subject matter under debate in defiance of the rules of the Senate. According to him, “I expect Dino my friend to know that that comparison was totally out of tune with the subject matter of the motion that was before the Senate and offensive to the rules of debate. The privileges enjoyed by members of the legislature do not enjoin them to make scurrilous remarks about the private life of citizens. I was shocked and embarrassed and am sure Edo people were also embarrassed. Dino should thread cautiously.”
