Our pick on Punch today is on the issue between Senator Remi Tinubu and Senator Dino Melaye.
Yesterday, the wife of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Party Leader, Mrs. Tinubu said she has forgiven Senator Dino Melaye.
She noted that as a Christian, she has to forgive him for abusing and threatening her.
“I met with the Senate leadership yesterday (Tuesday) after one week; I met with him (Senate President Bukola Saraki) yesterday. And as a Christian, I said I had already forgiven him (Melaye) for even with the way I was treated. But the point is that what people don’t realise is that I am a very reserved person. She said.
