As rumble behind the senate’s Wednesday closed-door session drags on, Senator Dino Melaye on Thursday admitted that he had issues with a Senator colleague (Remi Tinubu), whom he said, called him a dog and a Thug when impeachment plot against President Muhammadu Buhari was being considered.
He stated this at a press briefing after plenary on Thursday, noting

provoked, while reminding those that care to check records that he has
been like that.

issues of national interest, noting that in the past administration, he
fought doggedly for democracy which Nigerians are now enjoying today.

to streets whenever the need arose, particular in defense of democracy,”
