Senator Dino Melaye has reaffirmed the authenticity of his Bachelor’s degree in Geography, stating that he did his mandatory National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) program in Kaduna State.
Amid the raging controversy over his graduate status, Melaye took to his Twitter handle to share a photo of himself at the NYSC gold camp in Chikun local government area of Kaduna State.
“ABU 99 set at NYSC camp in KD. Me in blue shorts,” Melaye wrote along with the photo.
It could be recalled that Sahara Reporters had in a report, alleged that the Senator did not graduate from ABU.
Despite Melaye’s insistence that he was admitted into the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) Zaria, headed the student union government in his days at the citadel of learning, graduated successfully, the Senate opted to probe the claims.
Meanwhile, the ABU authorities have not yet confirmed whether he actually graduated or not.
The Information Officer of the institution, Mr. Adam Mohammed, had told the media that the management would take a decision on the matter and make its finding public on Wednesday.
But, they have appeared to have failed to make good their promise as they have kept mum on the matter.
