Certificate Scandal: Harvard University Denies Senator Dino Melaye Ever Studied There, Only Attended One-Week Seminar
According to SaharaReporters:
Senator’s posturing is also reflected on his LinkedIn account and has been previously showcased stated in (an interview with the media).
The Harvard Kennedy School of Educational Leadership confirmed that Dino Melaye presented himself in November 2016 only for a one-week seminar in leadership.
Following a motion by Senator Ali Ndume asking the Senate’s Ethics and Privileges Committee to investigate allegations that Melaye didn't properly graduate from Ahmadu Bello University in Zaria, Nigeria, Melaye had bragged that he has at least seven postgraduate degrees.
Mr. Melaye has been caught in a major certificate scandal in which Examination Officers at the Department of Geography, ABU, where Melaye took undergraduate classes, confirmed that he did not graduate from the institution.
They went further to say that the documents he presented to the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) were manipulated between Melaye, his then Head of Department, Prof. David Ogbonna.
Mr. Melaye had reportedly bribed university officials to produce fake transcripts, on the basis of which he attended a program at the University of Jos, the University of Abuja, and currently at ABU.
Several of Melaye's classmates and comrades also disputed his claim that he was a Students' Union Government President at ABU, at best, they stated Melaye was a president of the National Association of Geography Students (NAGS) from where he was impeached for fraud.
Another claim that the Senator studied at the London School of Economics could not be verified as of the time of going to press.
