There was drama in the National Assembly, on Tuesday, as controversial Senator, Dino Melaye, appeared in the Senate, fully dressed in his academic gown.
Melaye, who shocked lawmakers and appeared while others were already seated, did not retire to his seat immediately.
Instead, he took a long walk around, exchanging pleasantries with his colleagues, who were thrown into laughter. It took the intervention of the Senate Chief Whip, Senator Olusola Adeyeye to restore sanity to the floor.
Melaye’s action is unconnected to his recent travails, wherein he is being accused of forging his university degree certificate.
The controversy was finally laid to rest yesterday, when the Vice Chancellor of Ahmadu Bello University, Zaria, Professor Ibrahim Garba, told Senate Ethics committee that Melaye graduated from the institution.
