FAKE RESULTS REPORT: SAHARA REPORTERS USING ME TO GENERATE TRAFFIC – DINO MELAYE
The Kogi state senator, who spoke after Tuesday’s plenary, stressed that he has accepted the senate’s resolution to investigate the allegation that he does not have a university degree, even though he has seven, and is in the process of bagging the eighth.
Mr. Melaye’s comment is coming few hours afterAli Ndume, senator representing Borno south, moved a motion that the matter be investigated to clear Melaye and Senate President Bukola Saraki, who was accused of importing an SUV into the country with fake customs papers.
Speaking at the plenary, Ndume said: “In the PUNCH of today, page 16 and with your permission I will want to lay it and it says ‘Dino Melaye in first degree certificate scandal’ and it goes on and on.
“I will therefore appeal to the senate to investigate and our colleagues will be cleared and this senate will stand as it suppose to.” Ndume added.
The motion was further referred to the Senate committee on ethics to investigate the fake results allegation.
Reacting to the development during a chat with newsmen after Tuesday’s plenary, Melaye stressed that no senator is above investigation.
According to him, “We welcome the development. It will finally clear the air of all malicious allegations,” Melaye told journalists.
The lawmaker however, condemned Sahara Reporters over the report, adding that the online news platform make use of his name as a marketing tool to drive traffic to their medium.
In his words: “Sahara reporters are obsessed with me. They use me for marketing and whenever their profile and patronage is down they use me to generate traffic. I will not be surprised if by tomorrow Sahara reporters say that I am not a Nigerian.
“To say that I did not graduate from Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) zaria is to say that I am not a senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.” Melaye said.
