Politics CHECK: Did Dino Melaye Graduate Before He Was Born?



Senator Dino Melaye is currently in the eye of the storm over certificate scandal as exposed by Sahara Reporters. The online news channel says that he never graduated from the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria as is being claimed.

Melaye thinks this move was being planned to get him to face the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) because he was a major proponent against the confirmation of Ibrahim Magu as chairman of the anti-corruption organisation.

Sahara Reporters alleges that Melaye never graduated from the department of geography from ABU.

Here is a quick check on the Lawmaker's profile:

According to Wikipedia, Dino Daniel Melaye was born on January 1, 1974 (43) in Kano state. A check on his profile on the NASS website also confirmed his age to be 43 years.


But, the NASS website listed (before it was pulled down) Senator Melaye’s graduation dates as 1970.
