The Vice Chancellor of the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Prof. Ibrahim Garba, on Monday told the Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petition that the senator representing Kogi West in the upper legislative chamber, Dino Melaye, graduated with a third class degree in Geography from the institution in 2000.
The vice chancellor told the Samuel Anyanwu –led committee that Melaye was a student of the institution with the name Jonah Daniel Melaye.
Prof. Garba, who was invited to the venue of the hearing before Melaye spoke, was asked by lawmakers if the senator graduated from the institution.
An online medium, SaharaReporters, had reported last week that Melaye did not graduate from ABU.
It claimed that the Kogi-born senator allegedly bribed his Head of Department (HOD) to forge his transcript.
