Senator Oluremi Tinubu, wife of the national leader of All Progressive Congress, APC, says she has forgiven Dino Melaye.

A truce was initiated by the Senate President and APC caucus members in the hallowed chamber.

The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, had close door sessions that lasted 2 hours with both Dino and Mrs. Tinubu.

“I reported to the IGP; I wrote to him also, after I waited for one week.

“When it happened, it was him I went to.

“I waited for one week and nothing was done. I also wrote to the party (the APC) chairman.

“I met with the Senate leadership yesterday after one week.

“I met with the Senate President, Bukola Saraki, yesterday.

“And as a Christian, I said I had already forgiven him (Melaye) for the way I was treated.

“But the point is that what people don’t realize is that I am a very reserved person.

“After I gave my word to him (Saraki) yesterday, I told myself that at 55 I am not a wimp of anybody.

“I witnessed the Sani Abacha regime and I know what I saw and why I am committed to this cause.

“But now, my hands are tied to say I forgive people.

“I am a Christian; when I give my word, I must abide by it.

“But I am not scared to follow this through.

“I am not championing a cause for women.

“I am only standing in my space and if my space is encroached upon, I have to fight back.

“Rosa Parks wasn’t an activist; she just decided to sit in her space and not give up her space to anybody in a bus. And that sent a message.

“I want to use this opportunity to thank all Nigerian women who rose up; the women rights groups who are calling, conducting press conferences and doing a lot of things.”

Mrs. Tinubu also denied sponsoring protests against Dino.

“I didn’t give anybody anything; I don’t even have N80m in my personal salary account in the Senate.

“And I don’t think if I have any other savings I want to use it to mobilize women to protest.

“What about the investments we have put into politics?

“How much has that done for this country?” Tinubu said.
