Dino Melaye has also declared his intention to contest for the Kogi State gubernatorial election which would be held within the last quarter of 2019.

Melaye was involved in various certificates scandals in 2017 including his claim to have obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Geography from Ahmadu Bello University and a degree from the Boston-based Ivy League Harvard University in the United States. Most of his claims have as yet not been verified. Melaye insists on the truth of his claims. However, his colleague and former majority leader of his party (APC) Sen. Ali Ndume called for the senate to probe Melaye’s claims. Melaye claims not only did he graduate legitimately from ABU Zaria, but also, he has successfully earned seven degrees from various institutions around the world, among them are Harvard University, Kennedy School for Educational Leadership and London School of Economics and Political Science; a claim that was since refuted by both institutions, with Harvard claiming Mr. Melaye only presented himself for a week long professional development course in late 2016. While LSE claimed there’s no evidence on its database that Mr. Melaye ever Obtained any degree there.
