Senate to probe Dino Melaye over Certificate Forgery allegation

The Senate on Tuesday mandated its Committee on Ethics and Privileges to investigate alleged certificate forgery against Senator Dino Melaye.

This followed a point of order raised by former Leader of the Senate, Mohammed Ndume, during plenary.

Citing a publication in a national newspaper of March 20, entitled “Dino Melaye in fake degree scandal”, Ndume said that the issue bordered on the privileges of the Senate.

“We should refer this matter to the Committee on Ethics and Privileges to investigate so that our colleague will be cleared and this Senate will stand as is supposed to be,” he said.

He said that another issue bordering on the privileges of the senate was one on President of the Senate, Dr Bukola Saraki, accused of vendetta with the Nigerian Customs Service.

“Newspaper reports say Senate on vengeance after Nigerian Customs seized Sen. Saraki’s bulletproof Range Rover over fake documents.

“My colleagues following events, particularly online, must have read rains of abuses on this senate and the misconception that we invited the C-G of Customs based on an unpopular policy that affects the people we represent.

“Now we are faced with this and the precedence have been formed in the National Assembly.

“In the 4th Assembly, Rep. Salisu Buhari, was accused of certificate forgery; he was investigated.

“In the 5th Assembly, Rep. Bello Masari was accused of secondary school certificate forgery,” he recalled.
