Nigeria’s controversial senator, Dino Melaye, has explained how he became a Graduate of the Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts and London School of Economics (LSE) in London.
According to Melaye, the fact that he underwent training in those prestigious institutions and was certified after his training programme, makes him an alumnus and consequently a graduate of the institutions.
He said this during a live political programme on Channels Television, ‘Politics Today’ anchored by Seun Okinbaloye.
The senator, who hails from Kogi State, noted that the kind of training programme one undergoes whether mere apprenticeship, diploma, or degree does not determine his graduate status but the fact that the training programme was completed and certified.
He said: “Even a mechanic, a plumber who undergoes apprenticeship is certificated and he GRADUATES from his training.
“Anyone who attends an institution and is certificated for the programme he went there to attend whether Diploma, Degree, or Ph.D… and is certificated, you are an alumni, you are a graduate of that institution, because you carry a certificate of that institution.”
“I believe in investigative journalism and I am not going to be ridiculed on the platform of a television station.
“It is not a question and answer series, whatever I have is mine.
“Whatever I have is mine. Whatever I possess is mine. If you think otherwise, go to cour and sue me for forgery.
“Whatever I possess, I have indicated. Anyone that has arguments against me, the onus is on you to prove it, not me.”
