Simon Lalong and Joshua Dariye Simon Lalong and Joshua Dariye

Contrary to media reports making the rounds that the recently released past Governor of Plateau State, Sen. Joshua Dariye is planning to run for the senatorial seat of Plateau Central, the former governor has debunked the rumour, describing it as “unfounded and untrue” as he has not bought form or done anything to that effect.

DAILY POST recalls that just days after his release, reports have been making the rounds that he is planning to run for the senatorial seat of Plateau Central under the Labour Party.

Dariye debunked the rumour when Governor Simon Lalong, in the company of his wife (Regina), some National Assembly members, and members of the State Executive Council, visited him at his residence in Jos.

He advised politicians in the state to unite in promoting the interest of the citizenry.

According to him, “governance is an opportunity for those in charge to do their best and leave posterity to judge their efforts as no one can finish the business of Government in a day.”

Dariye said he was full of appreciation to God for making his release possible and also using people like Governor Lalong and President Muhammadu Buhari to make his release possible.

He narrated his ordeal in prison and said it was a difficult moment but God saw him through and made him survive.
