Dino Melaye, the senator representing Kogi West at the National Assembly, is currently in the centre of a certificate scandal with respect to the degree he acquired in Geography from the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, as some examination officers of the institution are insisting that the senator never graduated from the school.
Prominent for his verve to unleash controversy on national issues as well as his vitality to instigate monumental provocation, Melaye had last week claimed that there were plans to witch hunt him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), because he was a major factor that stood against the confirmation of Ibrahim Magu as chairman of the anti-corruption organisation.
However, Sahara Reporters is saying that Melaye never graduated from the department of geography from ABU.

The report said that the DSS was alerted over this but that the security agency covered it up and allowed the man blossom.
“At least three exam officers at ABU, Zaria insist that Dino Melaye never graduated from the Geography department, DG DSS alerted but covered it up,” the report said.
The officers also claimed that Melaye’s name was not on the graduation list and further accused him of bribing his head of department.
“The Examination officers stated that Melaye failed GENS 201, GEOG 307 (Long Field Trip Course), GEOG 404, GEOG 411 and GEOG 426,” SR said in another tweet.
But on Wikipedia, Dino Melaye is said to have graduated with a Bsc in geography from Ahmadu Bello University Zaria, adding that about 30 undergraduates are currently enjoying scholarship under his education empowerment fund.
