SENATOR representing Kogi West, Dino Melaye, has reacted to news making the rounds about the authenticity of his graduation at the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria, Kaduna State.
A report by an online medium on Monday reported that some examination officers of the institution are insisting that the senator never graduated from the university.
Melaye responded in a tweet, saying: “Please sue me and ABU if it is true that I did not graduate from Zaria. Tell Magu to arrest me and prosecute me.”
He further tweeted that “I’m presently a student of ABU pursuing my 7th degree. Go round all the UNIS I attended in digging more.”
The report stated that “At least three examination officers at ABU, Zaria, insist that Dino Melaye never graduated from the Geography department, DG DSS alerted, but covered it up.
Sahara Reporters please sue me and ABU if it is true that I did not graduate from Zaria. Tell Magu to arrest me and prosecute me.
