The Vice Chancellor of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Professor Ibrahim Garba, has cleared the air on whether or not Senator Dino Melaye graduated from the institution.
Appearing before the Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petitions on Monday, the Vice Chancellor said Melaye graduated from the institution as Daniel Jonah Melaye with a degree in Geography from the Faculty of Arts.
According to him, Melaye graduated with 3rd class and did his one year compulsory National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) between 2000 and 2001 in Kaduna State.
An online media, Saharareporters, had published a story that the Kogi State-born lawmaker did not graduate from the institution as he claimed in his records, a report that prompted the Senate to mandate its committee to probe into the allegations.
Melaye has also filed a suit in court against the publishers of the story demanding N5billion in damages.
