Senator Dino Melaye has said that he finished the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) process in 2001.
Melaye shared his completion certificate on social media to counter claims that he finished the service year in 1999.
The senator made the disclosure after being mocked for supposedly finishing NYSC in 1999 and graduating in 2000 when the reverse should be the case.
Melaye’s academic credentials have been the source of controversy since it was alleged that he did not graduate from the Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) as claimed.
However, the Vice Chancellor of ABU, Ibrahim Garba, said, on Monday, March 27, that the senator graduated from the institution with a 3rd class in Geography.
