Would the Senate be courageous enough to crucify one of their very own if found guilty?

That must be the question on the lips of many Nigerians as the senate commences investigation into the certificate scandal rocking Senator Dino Melaye.

Melaye was accused of forging the certificate with which he ran for the legislative seat.

The Senate resolved to probe Melaye following allegations that he did not really graduate from Ahmadu Bello University (ABU) in Zaria as claimed in his resume.

The Senate Committee on Ethics and Privileges is looking into the matter and will report back to the house in 2 weeks.

Melaye believes he is being witch-hunted because he strongly opposed the confirmation of the Acting Chairman of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, Mr. Ibrahim Magu.
