Tinubu is No God, He Cannot Determine My Political Career – Melaye

By Ikenga Chronicles July 15, 2016


The Senator representing Kogi West Senatorial district, Dino Melaye has stated that the National leader of the All Progress Congress, APC, Bola Tinubu was not in any way beneficial to him since he began his political sojourn and therefore cannot determine or end his political career.

Bola Tinubu through his media aide was reported to have responded to the alleged threat issued by Melaye on his wife and Senator, Oluremi Tinubu.

Melaye had alleged during an executive session at the Senate that he was persuading his co-senators to drop the forgery charge brought against Saraki, Ekweremadu and two others. He stated that after making his submission, Senator Tinubu rose to challenge him personally and called him a ‘Mad dog’’ and a thug.

While reacting to the statement credited to Bola Tinubu on his political career, Melaye insists the APC national leader cannot end his political career: “I will continue to speak for those who cannot speak for themselves, I will continue to be a voice to the voiceless and in reaction I heard that Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu said my political career has come to an end.

“I want to say that Tinubu is no god. I fear only the God almighty, I fear no soul I only respect souls. So far my political journey to the House of Representatives and the Senate has no political, financial or moral contribution of Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
“The God who has brought me this far is mighty, strong and enough to take me further, what God has given me no man can give and what God has given to me no man can take. I want to assure you that this is the true story of what transpired.”

Melaye said that he was not going to engage Tinubu on the comment credited to him by his media aide until the National leader confirms it himself before issuing him the appropriate response.
He however, stated that he was willing to apologize if he had wronged anyone with his comment in the matter.
“If there are instances that I am not a super human being, if there are instances where as a human being I have reacted negatively I am also ready to be apologetic about it. But in this particular instance, I have never mentioned anybody’s name, I never even used insolent languages.
Melaye pledges to continue to support Saraki and any attempt to force him out his seat as the Senate President.
