dari2 - Joshua Dariye deserves to be Imprisoned - PDP

The Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, has reacted to the jail sentence handed down to an ex-governor of Plateau state and serving APC senator, Joshua Dariye.

Dariye was sentenced to 14 years in prison on Tuesday for illegal diversion of N1.1 billion public funds during his tenure as governor. Speaking on the development,

The Public Reactions Officer of the state arm of the party, Hon. John Akans said the time was ripe for the party to reclaim its stolen mandate from APC.

Akans told The Sun that the party decided not to drag the former governor to court when he defected to the All Progressive Congress (APC) with the mandate of PDP because it was established that he will not escape jail.

He said, “This is the hour we in the PDP have all been waiting for, the law has taken its course, it was a landmark judgment that has created an avenue for PDP to reclaim its stolen mandate.

We gave Dariye overwhelming vote during the 2015 Senatorial elections in the state and he won the election under the platform of PDP but he disappointed the party by jumping to the ruling APC in search of refuge following his corrupt cases in court. No matter how long the case will take there must be a judgment day and today is the Day of Judgment.”

    The aim of anti money laundry is not just to punish d offenders, but to also retrieve all what they looted & confiscate all their properties. Why is d judge just sending d looter to jail without refunding all the funds. We can still do better.

    Since Buhari joined APC things began to change for worst, you would have continued with PDP. But greed won’t allow you.

    The law of karma has a way of dealing with its offenders. Joshua Dariye felt he could play a fast one but alas he is cooling off in jail now.
