Dino Melaye Graduated from ABU in 2000—VC Confirms
By Modupe Gbadeyanka
News reaching us from Abuja reveals that Vice Chancellor of the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) in Zaria, Kaduna State, Prof Ibrahim Garba, has disclosed that Senator Dino Melaye actually graduated from the institution.
Prof Garba appeared before Senate on Monday to clarify the certificate scandal trailing the lawmaker representing Kogi West Senatorial District at the National Assembly.
While answering questions from the Senate Committee on Ethics, which invited him, the VC emphasised that from the records available to him, the Senator graduated from the school in 2000 with a BA in Geography.
He said Senator Dino Melaye graduated as Daniel Jonah Melaye during the third semester with a 3rd class degree.
“From the records, distinguished Senator Dino Melaye graduated as Daniel Jonah Melaye during the 3rd semester with a 3rd class degree,” the ABU Vice-Chancellor told the lawmakers.
Some days ago, an online news platform, Sahara Reporters, claimed Mr Melaye did not graduate from the university. But it later said the lawmaker graduated with a 3rd class degree after spending more than four years at the school.
