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 it is the high time the PDP reclaim it s lost glory in the state.
Akans told The Sun that PDP decided not to take him to court when Dariye defected to APC because the party leadership in the state are very sure that he will not escape jail term no matter where he goes.
He said, “This 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.
“We 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.”
