In a terse statement on his Facebook page, Olayinka wrote: “Even if Dino Melaye presents Toilet paper as certificate, we like it like that.
“After all, our President is ruling us with NEPA BILL as certificate.”
Meanwhile, senator Melaye has shared certificate of his MSc obtained from ABU.
However, the London School of Economics had denied that Melaye ever attended the school.
According to Sahara Reporters however, the LSE denied that the Melaye attended the institution. Candy Gibson who is the senior media relations officer at the institution said: “We have checked our records and can find no evidence of Dino Melaye having any degree qualification from the London School of Economics and Political Science.”
