Omoyele Sowore Shares Photos from Alleged ABU Convocation Brochure | Dino Melaye’s Name Missing



Omoyele Sowore (L) and Dino Melaye (R)

After the Vice Chancellor of Ahmadu Bello University (ABU), Zaria, Professor Ibrahim Garba, disclosed to the Senate Committee on Ethics and Privileges, that available records show that Senator Dino Melaye (APC-Kogi) graduated from the institution in 2000, Sahara Reporters‘ publisher, Omoyele Sowore took to Facebook to share contradicting documents.


Sowore shared photos which he claims are from some pages in the convocation brochure of Dino Melaye’s alleged graduating set.

In the photos shared, Melaye’s name was not present in the list of graduating students with Third Class (BA Geography) degree.

Sowore wrote on Facebook:

AVAILABLE RECORDS: Daniel Jonah Melaye name also missing from the list of Geography BAThird Class category in the (Joint) Convocation Brochure of Ahmadu Bello University which combined graduating students from 1998/99-2000/2001 sessions.

See the photos below:

In a similar development, the page where ABU alumni are listed on its website is saying: “under construction”. This comes after it was reported that the senator’s name was not found in the list, which was previously available on its website.

    Such disgrace!!! Protect your family oh Sowore… These politicians are not only selfish and power thirsty; they are also blood thirsty for Nigerians who refuse to accept their bluff and money.

    Someone posted this on SR.
    How not to gain admission into a university

    • Physics……………………………………………F9

    • Christian Religious Studies……………………….C5

    • Agricultural Science……………………………….A3

    • Mathematics……………………………………….P8

    • Chemistry………………………………………….P8

    • Economics…………………………………………P7

    • Biology…………………………………………….C6

    Where is the geography?
    But seriously can 3credit get you a degree course. If you fit lie about 7degrees, you fit lie about anything. Mr Salaam, his classmate, the lecturer at Funnab said he lied about being SUG presiding. Chaii, he really inherited a lot from baseje Saraki. For the outsiders, the wailing wailers, the people that support every evil, corrupt, wicked, hatred for PMB and and support Saraki, Fayose and FFK even though they hate their clan, una doh o. I still and will continue to say it, you are Nigeria’s biggest plague. Leave already. Oya wailers wail.

      BTW, Buhari hired 7 SANS instead of showing real details of his certificate. So, why drag FFK and Fayoshe into this?

    I don’t care a hoot about this drama but is SR right to publish the names of Dino’s supposed classmates all in a bid to prove a point?

      How are they not right to publish ? The information is on a published and printed pamphlet ??.

      Well, this drama is about the necessary qualification needed to occupy an important position that helps progress Nigeria. If SR doesn’t present credible fact to debunk alleged claims by Mr. Senator, more and more folks like him who belong to and benefit from the quota system will continue occupying important position which they are UNQUALIFIED to occupy.

    Got to love Sahara reporters. Got to love Omoyele Sowore. In a country where the media sells propaganda, if this isn’t sheer bravery in display, it is something even greater.

    “I don’t care a hoot about SR”. That is how they change mouth about everything. From Dasukigate to all the gates. Their bile should have changed colour by now from all the hate for PMB,lol. Out of all the ‘gates’ and menace in your government, abeg who first publish am? Even if Sowore don make couple of mistakes, you cant dispute the fact that he feeds you with the news you long to read on Nigeria government. Hmmm, they hate us but celebrate our criminals. I hate evil, injustice, corruption and condemn all regardless of background. Oya make una start to change mouth, na una way.

      Apparently, being an anonymous “anti-wailer” can make one lose all sense of decorum on SM because I don’t know how else my comment above was misconstrued to mean I’m in support of Dino’s fake result drama. I just stated my opinion about how his supposed classmates might feel about their names being published; a view I’m allowed to express. No one said you shouldn’t state YOUR opinions but you can do so without putting someone else down for stating theirs. Live and let live!

      You should sue your school. Because when something like this comes up in your case for you to prove, them go say you dey yan story o! Despite your degree cert, it would be deemed fake.

    When I graduared from school, only five of us made the convocation booklist from my set. Those who had problems like incomplete results, missing results etc did not make the list. However they still graduated with us after sorting out the issues. I am not taking sides with the senator but he convocation book is not enough proof.

    I knew all the while that Dino fabricated his Certificates,but unfortunately he belongs to the Ruling Class. And he can cover all his tracks deceitfully. We are responsible for the woes we are facing as Nigerians, when we voted Charlatans to control our political space.
