The Plateau State chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) has reacted to the ruling of an FCT High Court sentencing former Governor of the State, Joshua Dariye to 14 years imprisonment.

Recall that the Justice Adebukola Banjoko-led court had yesterday found the former governor guilty of 15 of the 23 criminal charges levelled against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC).

However, PDP, in its reaction described Dariye’s conviction as a landmark judgment and victory against corruption.

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

β€œWe 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.”
