It was gathered that the Senate will invite authorities of the Universities Melaye attended to clear the air on the controversy.
The Senate will summon the management of Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) this week over the alleged fake certificate involving Senator Dino Melaye.
An online new medium, Sahara Reporters had last week reported that Melaye did not graduate from ABU, and the medium subsequently published more details alleging that the lawmaker only passed three courses in his school certificate results among other damning allegations.
The Senator, who is the chairman, Senate Committee on the Federal Territory, has since denied the claims as he also filed a N5 billion suit against the publication.
According to Punch, the upper chamber will invite authorities of the Universities Melaye attended to throw light into the matter.
“The Senate is inviting the authorities of the Universities Dino Melaye said he attended. Specifically, the Senate is inviting Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) to clear the controversy. The truth will be cleared by ABU this week. All the allegations are rubbish, ABU will not offer anybody admission with three credits,” a source told the newspaper.
The lawmaker had also petitioned the Inspector-General of police, Ibrahim Idris, accusing the publisher of Sahara Reporters, Mr Omoyele Sowore and his medium of defamation, and called on the police boss to investigate the case.
