Confirmed! Dino Melaye graduated from Ahmadu Bello University

Dino Melaye

The Vice-Chancellor of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Ibrahim Garba, has confirmed that Dino Melaye, the senator representing Kogi State, graduated from the school.

Mr. Garba made the confirmation at an investigative hearing of the Senate Committee on Ethics and Privileges on Monday.

He said, “From records, Mr. Melaye, formerly known as Daniel Jonah Melaye graduated, graduated from ABU with Third Class BA Geography in 2000”.

At the hearing, Mr. Melaye said he later changed his name officially from “Daniel Jonah Melaye” to “Dino Melaye” and expressed readiness to tender an affidavit backing the change of name.

He tendered the admission letter he received from ABU, his acceptance of offer, statement of result and final year project before the probe committee.

When asked by Matthew Urhoghide, APC-Edo, for his original degree certificate, Mr. Melaye said he was yet to collect it.

Mr. Melaye said he served the compulsory one-year National Youth Service Corps programme at the police college in Kaduna State.

He tendered his NYSC discharge certificate which, according to Peter Nwaoboshi, PDP-Delta, showed Mr. Melaye served between 2000 and 2001.

Both Mr. Melaye and the ABU vice chancellor spoke under oath before the committee.
The Senate had last week tasked the committee chaired by Samuel Anyanwu, PDP-Imo, to investigate an allegation that Mr. Melaye, APC-Kogi, did not graduate from ABU as he claimed.

The Senate’s resolution followed a motion by former Senate Leader, Ali Ndume, who said the controversy over Mr. Melaye’s degree certificate, had made the Senate the subject of public ridicule.

After the ABU’s affirmation of Mr. Melaye as its alumnus, Mr. Ndume said he was satisfied with the outcome of the probe, and that he believed Mr. Melaye indeed graduated from the school.
“There is no big deal,” Mr. Ndume said, explaining that he only relied on what was published by the media.

The Senate President, Bukola Saraki, is now before the committee which is also investigating an allegation that he imported a bullet-proof Range Rover Sports Utility Vehicle with fake Customs papers.

Vice-Chancellor of ABU arrives National Assembly for the certificate hearing of Melaye

The Vice-Chancellor of the Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, is now at the National Assembly for the Senate Committee on Ethics, Privileges and Public Petition hearing investigating the certificate scandal involving Kogi State senator, Dino Melaye.
The Senate had last week tasked the committee chaired by Samuel Anyanwu, PDP-Imo, to investigate the allegation that Mr. Melaye, APC-Kogi, did not graduate from ABU as he claims in official documentations.
That Senate’s resolution followed a motion by former Senate Leader, Ali Ndume, who said the scandal had made the Senate subject of public ridicule.
Mr. Melaye claims eight degrees, including two from Harvard University and London School of Economics and Political Science, but Sahara Reporters reported how the two schools debunked the Senator’s claims.
Mr. Melaye is also present at the hearing currently underway.
The ABU had turned down earlier media inquiries to confirm whether Mr. Melaye graduated from the school.
Contacted by journalists last week, the school’s management said it would only state its position if contacted by the Senate.

NUT:denies suing Amosun

The Nigerian Union of Teachers has denied suing the Ogun state governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun over the sacked members in the state.

The National President of the Union, Micheal Olukoya who led the leaders of the Union from 15 states in the country, said, though, the union was contacted to join a suit against the state governor over the sacked workers in the state , but it rejected the move .

While speaking with newsmen, Olukoya said the NUT believes the state government will pardon the remaining three teachers. The state government has sacked about 35 workers in the state for allegedly engaging in political act against the state government during the past year World Teachers Day.

Those affected include the State Chairman Nigeria Labour Congress, Akeem Ambali , the NUT Chairman in the state and Dare Ilekoya and over 30 workers in the state. The state government had later reinstated about 31 workers it had sacked, but yet to do same to three members of the union; Dare Ilekoya (NUT Chairman) Eniola Atiku and Nola Balogun for allegedly politicising the last year teachers day.

Speaking on the steps taken so far, Olukoya noted that the NUT leaders have  visited royal fathers in the state, including Awujale of Ijebuland, Oba Sikiru Adetona who e said was not around during the incident.

Uniilorin partners with U.S company to build $1.5 billion solar energy plant


The University of Ilorin is partnering with a U.S company to build a 500 megawatts solar energy plant as part of efforts to tackle the challenge of power supply in Nigeria.

Abdul Ganiyu Ambali, the institution’s Vice-Chancellor, disclosed this while speaking at the News Agency of Nigeria, NAN, forum in Abuja on Sunday.

“The 500 megawatts is too much for the university alone to utilize; in fact, we in the university require just a maximum of four megawatts.

“Which means the extra 496 megawatts would have to be given to the Federal Republic of Nigeria, either the immediate community or nationwide. I think that is what is being processed.

“We have had talks with various stakeholders who are going to be party to the consumption and payment of the 496 megawatts because the project is going to cost about 1.5 billion dollars.

“It is a heavy investment. Which means the company that is going to bring the 1.5 billion dollars, has to be convinced that it will recoup its investment.

“They (company) have made tremendous progress, they have talked to the government, they are talking with agencies of government and by the time they harmonize all these products of their discussion, I am sure they will take off and the government and Nigeria will now be the overall beneficiary of all those efforts.’’

Brain Travis, Managing Director of the American company, said the selection of Uni-Ilorin as its partner was because the university had many reliable innovative projects.

Mr. Travis, who described the project as the largest solar plant in Africa, said it would help empower the locals in terms of employment and training.

“Most of us probably know there are difficulties with the whole power system in Nigeria. We will all like to have stable power.

“We also are going to not sell into the national grid but try to solve the problem by entering into direct contract with Discos; because of the location of Ilorin, we have direct access to six district discos up and down the coast.

“Each of those discos is determining how much of the power they want; they determine when they need the power, how they need it and how they are going to sell it.

“So we will be effectively dealing with the people who need the power. So that we do not have the supply chain issues that exists now and that is the reason we are doing the solar project here. It has got good solar radiation.

“We have an excellent host; you heard about the innovative projects of the Vice-Chancellor and it’s that spirit that allows us to come in and negotiate for a significant piece of property.

“Also there is an obligation I understand from the university to help the local community. So we are going to be hiring local people as contractors as well as training local people in solar and renewable.”
He said the project would be completed in 18 months.

The angry students also alleged that the Police helped the driver escape.

Purnishment bills for sexual harrassment in tertiary institutions suspended by Reps

House of Reps

The House of Representatives on Thursday suspended deliberations on a bill seeking to make provisions for the prohibition and punishment of sexual harassment of students in educational institutions.
The bill, sent to the House for concurrence from the Senate, was suspended because it is restricted to higher institutions only.
Presenting the bill for second reading, the House Majority Leader, Femi Gbajabiamila (Lagos-APC), said the Bill needed to be expanded to accommodate other forms of sexual harassment beyond higher institutions.
“The way the bill is now is restrictive. It restricts its enforcement to only higher institutions of learning. What about secondary schools and the work place?
“I have concerns over this bill before we concur to it because it did not talk about sexual harassment in the banks, churches and homes.
“We should look for a way to widen its scope to encompass sexual harassment in other places.
But Aminu Shagari (Sokoto-APC) urged the House to go ahead with the concurrence while other aspects could be accommodated later.
Ayo Omidiran (Osun-APC) in her contribution said: “As a woman, I know sexual harassment can take place anywhere be it in market, church or work place; sexual harassment is sexual harassment anywhere.
“And women too harass men not only men harass women, so there should be different segments of harassment and it should be accommodated in the bill.
Ruling on the matter, the Speaker, Yakubu Dogara, said there might be a need to write the Senate to inform them about what should be included or not.
“And for that reason we shall adjourn this debate pending when we have done proper consultations on the bill,” Mr. Dogara added.

Dino Melaye certificate controvercy: Ahmadu Bello University reacts


The Ahmadu Bełlo University, ABU, Zaria has said it would not release information on the controversy surrounding the academic certificate Dino Melaye, the All Progressives Congress senator representing Kogi West District, until formally approached by the Senate.
Mr. Melaye, who says he graduated from the university with a degree in Geography, was last week accused of making false claim.
The online newspaper, Sahara Reporters, said Mr. Melaye did not graduate from ABU.
Mr. Melaye has denied the allegation.
“To say that I did not graduate from ABU is to say that I am not a senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,” Mr. Melaye said. “ABU is a very prestigious university in this country, and it is not possible for one to be running a master’s program in the university when one did not graduate from a university. I have successfully completed one, and I am doing the second one.”
The Senate says it is investigating the controversy.
The authorities of ABU had earlier promised to issue a statement on the matter on Wednesday, but failed to do so.
On Thursday, Adamu Mohammed, the director of publicity of the university, told journalists the management of the university held a marathon meeting on the issue on Wednesday, but refused to disclose its outcome.
“The management has decided not to address journalists on the alleged certificate issue since a committee has been set up to investigate the matter by the Senate of the Federal Republic Nigeria.
“As such, we will await request by any relevant authority, then we would respond accordingly,” he said.
Mr. Mohammed also said individuals or organization seeking information in respect of any of its student should follow the normal process of officially writing to the university management.
The university management had earlier said it would issue a statement on the issue on Wednesday.

ASUU threatens the closure of Universities

ASUU, JAMB Act, amendment

The Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) has warned that Federal and State Universities risk closure, following lack of prompt payment of salaries.

The Port Harcourt chapter of the union held a press conference in Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, where it revealed that the zone is the worst hit with shortfall in salaries and unpaid salary arrears.
The institutions in the zone are the University of Port Harcourt in Rivers State, Niger Delta University Amassoma in Bayelsa State, Federal University, Otuoke in Bayelsa State, Rivers State University of Science and Technology in Rivers State and Ignatius Ajuru University of Education in Rivers State.
The Zonal Coordinator, Prof. Beke Sese, said lecturers would no longer continue to endure the situations against the backdrop of current economic hardship.
Sese described the idea of withholding staff salaries while establishing new universities at the same time as the height of irresponsibility and wickedness.
“Our members are being compelled by the actions and inaction of government to contemplate the hard decision of withdrawing our services.
”We call on the students, parents, the media and well-meaning Nigerians to intervene and request the Federal as well as State governments to live up to their responsibilities in the universities, to avoid the imminent and avoidable closure of our campuses.”
The professor also stated that the federal government and some state governments last year enforced a policy of starvation in universities by either paying fractional salaries or outright non-payment of salaries.
He said academic institutions had become the major recipients of ”this inhuman and abhorrent policy of starvation,” adding at the Niger Delta University (NDU), lecturers were not paid salaries for a period of six months.
He lamented that lecturers could no longer cope with caring for their families, paying their children’s school fees and meeting other commitments with such imposed deficit in their income.

Protest sparks off in Lafia over the killing of secondary school student

Killing Of Secondary School Student Sparks Off Protest In Nasarawa

Students of Government Secondary School, Lafia, the Nasarawa state capital, have staged a protest over the alleged killing of their fellow student by one of the sons of the Governor, Khaleel Umar Al-Makura.

They took to the streets carrying leaves and placards with inscriptions demanding justice for the killing of Ovye Amos, a Junior Secondary School two student.
It however took the intervention of the police, officers of the Nigeria Security Civil Defence Corps, their teachers and government to calm them down.
The school Head Boy, Goodluck Agwu, revealed that the deceased, Ovye, had gone out to buy batteries for his torch light when he was hit by a car allegedly belonging to Khaleel around 8:00pm.
According to him, the issue originated from the fact that the school lacks electricity supply.
Furthermore, he complained about insecurity, stating the fact that people come in and out of the premises at any time because of the absence of security men.
Addressing the students at the school parade ground, the Nasarawa state government who was represented by the Commissioner of Education, Aliyu Tijjani, expressed his sympathy and promised to bring the perpetrator to book.
“I want to express my profound dismay and sadness over what happened here yesterday. It is unfortunate, very very unfortunate. The government of Nasarawa state has already taken measures into ensuring that the person that perpetrated this killing is brought to book. He has already been arrested ”
The children seem to be adamant and do not believe the disposition of the government as they all shouted after the government’s position was made.
The police who were also at the school to calm the students say investigations are ongoing.
The area commander of Lafia area office, ACP Maikudi Shehu assured the students that they would be briefed on the development.
“It is a painful thing, we sympathise and empathise with you and we assure you that investigation is ongoing and that particular culprit as we are speaking now is under detention in our custody”

“We will keep you informed of developments as they unfold”

Corruption trial of FUTA Vice Chancellor stalled following Judge's withdrawal

Federal University of Technology, Akure

The corruption trial of the Vice Chancellor of the Federal University of Technology, FUTA, Adebiyi Daramola, was on Monday stalled following the withdrawal from the case by the trial judge, Ademola Bola.
The judge’s withdrawal followed a petition by the Senior Staff Association of Nigerian Universities, SSANU, FUTA branch and other unions in the university, alleging that the judge was biased.
The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC, filed a nine-count charge against Mr. Daramola, alongside the institution’s Bursar, Ayodeji Oresegun, bordering on abuse of office, conspiracy and obtaining by false pretence.
The judge, while describing the petition as “frivolous,” transferred the case to another judge for continuation on March 30.
Shortly after counsel had announced their appearance, Mr. Bola drew the attention of the court to the petition which accused him of bias and “being tele-guided by a certain person” on the case.
The judge who was obviously angry by the allegation, said the petition by FUTA Joint Action Committee, comprising Non Academic Staff Union of Universities, SSANU and NAAT, was the first of such against him in his eight years as a chief magistrate and 15 years as a judge.

Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu

Credit: Punchng

The Minister of Education, Adamu Adamu, has urged the West African Examinations Council (WAEC) to review its registration fee and process to give equal opportunities to secondary school leavers.
Mr. Adamu made the call on Monday in Abuja when he received WAEC’s governing council, led by the chairperson, Evelyn Kandakai.
According to him, many parents and guardians complain about the exorbitant fees charged by the council, as their children and wards fail to write the examinations upon completing secondary education.
The Minister of State for Education, Anthony Anwukah, commended WAEC’s contributions to the development of education in Nigeria and other member countries, namely Ghana, Gambia, Sierra-Leone and Liberia.
He urged the WAEC governing council chairperson to use her position “as a role model for the promotion of the girl-child education in the sub-region.”
Responding, Mrs. Kandakai acknowledged Nigeria’s outstanding contributions toward the sustenance of WAEC over the years.
Founded in 1951, WAEC is an examination board that conducts the West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) for universities and Joint Admission Matriculation Board (JAMB) entry examination in West Africa countries.
