Influential politician and senator representing Lagos central, Remi Tinubu, has described her colleague from Kogi west, Dino Melaye, as a son in whom Senate President, Bukola Saraki is well pleased.
According to TheCable, the wife of the national leader of the ruling All Progressive Congress, made the comment on Tuesday when she was called by Saraki to second a motion approving votes and proceedings moved by Melaye.
Saraki had asked Melaye to move a motion for the adoption of the votes and proceedings of the last legislative day.
Responding, Melaye said: “I want to move the motion on behalf of myself and Senator Remi Tinubu.”
This was after Saraki described Melaye who was wearing a red suit as the best dressed. But Tinubu said she ought to have been called to move the motion because she is a ranking senator.
The former Lagos State first lady said the day was for roses and Melaye did not have a single one on his attire, while she had.
“I am a ranking senator. I was supposed to be called to approve the votes and proceedings but you gave it to him because he is your son,” she said.
“You are being partial… you also gave him the best dressed. Did you look at me? I have roses all over. Today is for roses, he doesn’t even have a single rose.
“Since I am not your son, I will gladly second the motion, ably moved by your beloved son in whom you are well pleased. I so second.”
The chamber erupted in laughter.
