Despite living in Dubai, Dino Melaye emerges best graduating student at Baze University

Dubai-based, it is surprising how the former senator graduated and became the best graduating student.

• October 23, 2021

Former Senator Dino Melaye has emerged as the best graduating student of Baze University Abuja despite currently residing in Dubai.

Mr Melaye’s aide, Bode Gbadebo, posted a picture of him on Facebook, alongside other individuals adorned in an academic dress, with the caption “Senator Dino Melaye graduates from Baze University, emerges best graduating law student.”

Peoples Gazette reached out to Mr Gbadebo, who concurred that Mr Melaye graduated with a first-class in Law degree (LLB).

Despite rarely being in Nigeria after losing his reelection into the national assembly in 2019 and currently based in Dubai, it is surprising that the former senator did not only graduate but was awarded the best graduating student with a yet to be confirmed GPA.

On February 25, Peoples Gazette had reported that the Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, also enrolled into the same Baze University as a law student.

Mr Malaye has now posted numerous pictures of the graduation ceremony alongside other dignitaries to his very active Instagram account, with the caption “Can only be God”.

Update, October 24: New information has emerged showing that Mr Melaye and his aide lied about their claim. Read our new story on the school record here.
