Sen. Joshua Dariye, who is currently serving a 14-year jail term over financial misdeeds while serving as Plateau governor, has submitted an APC nomination form to contest next year’s election.
Mr. Chindo Dafat, the APC Publicity Secretary in Plateau State confirmed the development.

“Yes, Sen. Dariye has picked a nomination form to seek a third term. It is true. He is among those jostling for the APC ticket in Plateau Central,” he said, adding that Dariye had filled the form and submitted it to the party, Daily Trust reports.
News had earlier filtered that Dariye had purchased form to vie for the Senate once again even as many pundits had questioned the authenticity of the claim, wondering how someone just starting a 14-year jail term could throw his hat into a contest scheduled for next year beginning with primary election next month.
“His (Dariye)’s ward secretary came and signed the form on his behalf. It has been filled and his supporters are already campaigning ahead of the party primary election,” Dafat said.
According to him, Dariye will battle with three others – Zakari Dimka, Sam Piwuna and Manji Pompori – for the APC ticket.
The party official said Dariye was “still very popular and relevant in Plateau Central in spite of his current ordeals,” adding that the former governor “can win the primary elections from the prison.”
He said Dariye had appealed his conviction and could have it upturned because they were praying for him.
“Aside possible success in the appeal, we are also praying for a state pardon,”
he said.
