Senator Joshua Dariye, an ex-governor of Plateau State,  will declare interest to contest the Plateau Central senatorial seat on the platform of the Labour Party (LP) ahead of the 2023 elections. Dariye, former Taraba governor, Jolly Nyame, and three others were, on Monday, August 9, released from prison three months after their pardon by the Council of State led by President Muhammadu Buhari, on April 14, 2022.

Dariye, who was serving 10 years’ imprisonment for N1.126 billion fraud, was released after about four years in prison. According to DailyTrust, the Plateau State chapter of LP has concluded arrangements to receive the former Plateau governor from Abuja to pick the party’s senatorial form. Dariye, who served as Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) governor, defected from the party. He contested and won a senatorial seat in 2011 on the platform of LP.

A Labour Party official, who spoke on condition of anonymity said; “Yes, it is true that he (Dariye) will be running for a Senate seat. We are making arrangements for him to come from Abuja for the senatorial declaration.
