November 01, (THEWILL) – Senator Dino Melaye, may have graduated with a degree in Law from Baze University, Abuja but the acquisition is mired in controversy. A week ago, one of his aides, Bode Gbadebo, posted on Facebook that the senator bagged a first-class degree and was among the best graduating students of the institution. However, investigations revealed that the senator graduated with a second-class lower degree. It was gathered that he struggled during his stay at the institution and battled several carryovers, which he had to re-register for before eventually graduating.

Dino Melaye who has reportedly relocated to Dubai, United Arab Emirate after losing his re-election to the Senate, had to shuttle between Dubai and Nigeria and this drastically affected his performance at school.

The senator posted pictures of his convocation on social media a couple of days ago. He stated that he had joined the league of law degree holders.

Besides Melaye, a former Minister of Aviation and currently governorship candidate in Anambra State, Osita Chidoka and Senator Ifeanyi Ubah were also among the graduates. While Ubah, who is also contesting in the Anambra governorship election scheduled for November 6 under the Young Progressives Party, graduated in Second Class lower division, Chidoka graduated Second Class Upper from the institution.
