The ABU had turned down earlier media inquiries to confirm whether Mr. Melaye graduated from the school.

Mr. Dino Melaye while speaking, said he later had his name changed officially from "Daniel Jonah Melaye" to "Dino Melaye" and expressed readiness to present an affidavit backing the change of name.

Melaye had, for days, fought hard to to convince Nigerians that he graduated from the department of geography in the institution.

Shortly after the damning report which quickly gained traction, Melaye dismissed the allegations, daring the news medium and the authorities to sue him on the strength of the claims. "Tell Magu (EFCC Chairman) to arrest and prosecute me".

Ndume who was absent at the beginning of the hearing however arrived after the committee had permitted the VC and Senator Melaye to leave.
