Plateau PDP urges Saraki, INEC to declare Dariye’s seat vacant
Reactions continue to trail the recent defection of the former Governor of Plateau and current senator of the federal republic of Nigeria Joshua Dariye from the People Democratic Party the PDP to the ruling All Progressive Party APC.
The latest comes from Dariye’s senatorial district where the leadership of PDP Plateau central is calling on the nation’s electoral body, INEC, to issue a certificate of return to the runner up in the PDP primaries at the zone in 2015.
The vice Chairman PDP Plateau central Benedict Shignuhul who read the position of the PDP plateau central says they have met with all relevant levels of the party in the state and hereby pass a vote of no confidence on senator Dariye .
He also debunked in strong terms the claim made by the senator that one of the reasons for his defection was that his followers were decamping to the ruling party APC.
Shignuhul insists that Dariye’s decision to leave the party was taken unilaterally without consulting the PDP family in his constituency.
