London School Of Economics becomes the 2nd institution to debunk Melaye’s degree claim


.

The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) has discredited the Senator Dino Melaye’s assertion that he possesses a degree from the UK university, SaharaReporters is reporting.

.

.

LSE is one of the higher institutions of learning where Mr. Melaye claimed that he had earned one certificate or another.  

.

.

In an email to SaharaReporters, Candy Gibson, a Senior Media Relations Officer at LSE, stated, “We have checked our records and can find no evidence of Dino Melaye having any degree qualification from LSE and Political Science.”

.

.

Mr. Melaye had claimed that he obtained 7 degrees from several institutions, including Harvard and LSE. He created the impression that he earned 3 degrees from Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) in Zaria, his first university where he purportedly graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Geography. 

.

.

SR has confirmed that at least two of these claims are outright falsehoods. The registrar’s office at Harvard University noted in a statement that while Mr. Melaye completed a week-long leadership seminar in November 2016, he did not graduate from the university. 

.

.

At one point, officials at ABU indicated their plan to make a statement on whether Mr. Melaye completed his coursework in the Department of Geography. 

.

.

However, they may have abandoned the plan following resistance from key officials of the Department who insist that the senator never met the criteria for graduation. 

.

.

Examination officers at the Department where Mr. Melaye spent almost 8 years as a student, reportedly told S.R that the senator never fulfilled his course requirements to graduate. 

.

.

They accused then HOD, David Ogbonna, of cooking up results to enable Mr. Melaye evade course requirements, which included mandatory courses required for graduation. 

.

.

SR learned that since the certificate scandal broke, some top officials of ABU had been pressuring the staff of Geography Department to certify that Mr. Melaye graduated with a 3rd class. A source at the Geography Department told S.R that such a certification would be fraudulent.
