Senator Joshua Dariye, who is serving a jail term for fraud and money laundering, has obtained the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) nomination and expression of interest form to seek reelection.
He is representing Plateau central senatorial district at the upper chamber of the National Assembly.
Dariye, a former governor of Plateau State, is currently serving 14 years jail term in Kuje prison over his alleged mismanagement of N1.1 billion Ecological Fund when he was the governor of the state.
According to reports, Joshua Dariye’s personal assistant Itauna Dinka obtained the nomination form for his principal’s re-election on Friday, September 7.
The senator was on 12 June sentenced to 16 years in prison by a Federal High Court sitting in Abuja, Nigeria’s capital.
