The Senator representing Plateau Central Zone in the National Assembly, Joshua Dariye, who is currently serving a 14-year jail term, has purchased the All Progressives Congress (APC) nomination form to return to the Senate in 2019.
New Telegraph reliably gathered yesterday that the Legislative Aide of the Senator, one Abel, had purchased the Senate nomination form at the APC National Secretariat, Abuja and also submitted same on September 7.
Another source, who wouldn’t want his name in print and a close associate of the Dariye, told New Telegraph that: “I am aware that Senator Dariye has purchased and filled the APC nomination and declaration of interest to contest in the forthcoming APC primary election and also the 2019 general elections to represent the good people of Plateau Central in the 9th National Assembly.”
