/> Dino Melaye's WASC Results Has Three Credits Only - by Sahara Reporters | Welcome to praizeblog

SaharaReporters has obtained Senator Dino
Melaye’s West African Examination Council (WAEC)
result sheets showing that the embattled senator
was a dismal student who earned only three

The result sheet for the senator, a member of the
All Progressives Congress (APC) who represents
Kogi West senatorial district, came from a
secondary school attended by Mr. Melaye, even
though he had kept that aspect of his academic
history hidden from the public by scrubbing the
school from his profile on the website of the
Nigerian Senate.
Mr. Melaye sat for the WAEC exams at the
Abdulazeez Attah Memorial College, Okeke in Kogi
State. His results, exclusively obtained by
SaharaReporters, reveal that Senator Melaye, whose
name on the result sheets was registered as Daniel
Jonah O. Melaiye, only made three credits in
Christian Religious Studies (C5), Agricultural
Science (A3) and Biology (C6). Melaye took 6 other
subjects including English Language (P8),
Mathematics (P8), Chemistry (P8), Economics (P7)
and Physics (F9).
The dismal performance meant that Mr. Melaye did
not have the minimum requisite credits to gain
admission into a Nigerian university to study for a
bachelor’s degree. In fact, the only way he could
have been admitted for studies at a Nigerian
university was if he earned other credits from
another secondary school.
Mr. Melaye did not list his secondary school
education on his www.linkedin.com profile. Nor did
he provide it on his senatorial profile on the
website of the Nigerian National Assembly. Instead,
he listed Gandun Nasarawa Primary School in Kano
as the source of his West African School Certificate.
Pupils in primary school are not eligible to sit
WAEC exams.
Authorities at Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) in
Zaria have stopped responding to inquiries from the
media to provide proof that Mr. Melaye fulfilled the
requirements for admission and graduation at the
university in 1993.
Two of Mr. Melaye’s classmates yesterday
disclosed that the senator was impeached as the
President of the National Association of Geography
Students (NAGS) in 1998/99 because he was
accused of stealing a brand new TV set purchased
by the association. He replaced the stolen TV set
with an old one.
Since Mr. Melaye’s certificate scandal broke, the
senator has sued SaharaReporters for libel and
defamation, making a court appearance at a Federal
Capital Territory court in Abuja. The senator has
also today petitioned the Inspector General of the
Nigerian police claiming that the expose of his
shady academic records by SaharaReporters
constitutes a “cybercrime”.
