Certificate scandal: See 7 undeniable facts that finished Dino Melaye

Recall that the Beleaguered Kogi West Senator Dino Melaye
was on Monday 27, 2017 cleared by Vice Chancellor of Ahamadu Bello University,
Professor Ibrahim Garba on certificate and graduation arguments.
Recall that Tellforceblog
had reported that Senate Dino Melaye smashed a N5billion legal suit against the
Sahara Reporters publisher, Omoyele Sowore.

But notwithstanding, Dino’s clearance by ABU VC, condemnations
have unrelenting be gathering force as to the genuineness of his certificate.
In his response, a Facebook user, The truth stated that: “Dino has dug his own grave, and only him
shall be buried inside it. Omoyele Sowore does not go to press with gibberish
and balderdash. He seeks neither fame nor wealth. And while he may not have 100
percent credibility in all situations, he surely has some concrete proofs at
his disposal whenever he takes on anyone.”
Here are 7 undeniable facts that tacked Dino Melaye to

1. Inconsistencies in
his names
What precisely is the name of Mr. Melaye? Below are five
possibilities for this:
  • Daniel Jonah Melaye
    (This was on his statement of results issued by ABU and signed Feb 3, 2000);
  • Melaye Daniel (NYSC
    certificate, July 8th, 2001);
  • Daniel Dino Melaye
    (Diploma certificate from UNIJOS, Aug 3, 2006);
  • Melaye Daniel Jonah O
    (SSCE Certificate, 1992};
  • Dino Melaye (Official
    name, NASS website).

2. Harvard and LSE
Remember that in a video clip that went viral, Melaye
claimed that he possessed a degree certificate from Harvard University and
London school of Economics and political science respectively. But, both
refuted his claim, in an email letter to Sahara Reporters, that they ever
admitted any student by the name Melaye not to talk of being their graduate.

3. Ghost graduate
Sahara Reporters posted the list of ABU 99 set with Dino
Melaye’s name noticeably missing. Who was a student from a university but does
not make the graduating list?

4. No show on the
alumni site
Search have been conducted for Dino Melaye’s name on the ABU
alumni site but all was futile. I have typed all of his names and their
variants; nothing came up. I have also typed each of his names separately,
still, no show. How is that possible?

5. Deficiencies in O
level certificate
Sahara Reporters revealed that in his SSCE which he sat for
in 1992, Dino Melaye had only 3 credits in the following subjects: Agric, CRK
and Biology. Now, the question is, how did he gain admission into ABU in spite
of scoring P8 in core subjects (Maths, English and even geography)?

6. B.A. Geography?
A dig into ABU’s website revealed that the department of Geography
was once in the faculty of Arts before it was later added to the faculty of
Sciences. However, Dino’s statement of results leaves more questions than
answers. For instance, between 1973 and 2011,the department graduated the following students with BSc in Geography:
  • Bawa Jonah Seth
    Besanhi (BSc Geography; graduated in 1973);
  • Abin Daniel John
    (BSc Geography; graduated in 1978);
  • Dada Daniel Adefila
    (BSc Geography; graduated in 1979)
  • Beshiru Daniel (BSc
    Geography; graduated in 1980);
  • Daniel Bosede Biddy
    (BSc Geography graduated in 1983);
  • Atenji Daniel E. (BSc
    Geography; graduated in 1986);
  • Ndasala Jonah (BSc
    Geography; graduate in 1987).
  • Birga Jonah (BSc
    Geography; graduated in 2007);
  • Kaigama Jonah Ishaku
    (BSc Geography; graduated in 2011).

So where did Dino who graduated in 1999 get his B.A. result?

7. Conflicting dates
on the statement of results
At least, Dino Melaye’s statement of results has 3 different
dates: on the top right corner of the paper is 26th June, 2000; somewhere in
the middle is 3rd February, 2000 and down left is 22nd September, 2010. What
Dino, if you find yourself in a pit, stop digging. This is
your Waterloo. We are keenly watching.
