Senate invites ABU Vice Chancellor over Melaye's Certificate scandal
Senator Dino Melaye
The Senate is set to invite the Vice-Chancellor of Ahmadu
Bello University, ABU, to shed more light on the noise surrounding the degree
certificate of Senator Dino Melaye.
According to the Punch, the upper house of parliament will
this week call on the authorities of the university to illuminate more about
the alleged Melaye’s certificate scandal.

The news media refer to a source as saying that the beckon
will clear air on the lasting controversy.

“The Senate is
inviting the authorities of the Universities Dino Melaye said he attended.
Specifically, the Senate is inviting Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) to clear the
controversy. The truth will be cleared by ABU this week. All the allegations
are rubbish, ABU will not offer anybody admission with three credits,”
source said.
According to Vanguard, reports that the VC of ABU, Professor
Ibrahim Garba will appear before the Senate today, March 27, 2017.
Recall that a classmate of the embattled Senate Dino Melaye,
at ABU, Abdussobur Salaam, did not let the weekend roll without putting his own
stick into the flame, by describing the travails of the senator as payback for
certain sins committed in the past.
Salaam‎ who currently works at the Federal University of
Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB), spoke about the certificate controversy in
which the senator is currently embroiled.
He said: “Permit
me to make an intervention on the issue of Dino and ABU, having been admitted
and ‘graduated’ from ABU same year as Dino. I use the word ‘graduated’, very
guardedly and with caution.

“Permit me to say that
as at the time we were admitted, Geography Department was under the Faculty of
Arts and Social Sciences (FASS). In our 200 level, the Faculty was split and
Geography Department had issues of where to fit in. It was initially placed
under Faculty of Arts and later shifted to Faculty of Sciences where it is
presently domiciled. The narrative on his certificate could be correct.”
