Ex-Plateau Governor, Senator Joshua Dariye on Thursday dumped the opposition Peoples Democratic Party for the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

The former Governor now a serving senator, stated this in a letter he sent to the Senate President, Bukola Saraki which  read at plenary.

Dariye’s letter reads thus: “After due consultations with my constituency, I write to notify you of my intention to cross over from the PDP to the APC.

“My decision is informed by the protracted division at the national level of the PDP that led to the massive movement of my supporters to the APC.

“Arising from this, I, therefore, write to formally inform you of my decision to go along with my supporters. I thank you for your understanding.”

It would be recalled that Dariye in 2011, left the PDP for the Labour Party where he contested the senatorial election and returned to the PDP in 2014.

Dariye is at the moment facing money laundering and other corruption charges brought against him by the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission, EFCC.
