The Action Democratic Party (ADP) in Plateau has lauded the conviction of former Governor, Joshua Dariye, saying that the rule of law has finally taken its course.
Dariye was sentenced to 14 years in prison by the FCT High Court sitting in Gudu, Abuja had on Tuesday, for misappropriating N1.1billion state’s fund.
Danjuma Auta, the Plateau Publicity Secretary of the ADP told NAN on Tuesday in Jos that Dariye’s conviction was a right step in the right direction for democracy to thrive.
“This is not about President Muhammadu Buhari frowning about embezzlement of public fund.
“The rule of law has taken its course and we as a political party are fully in support of what will stop the mismanagement of public funds.
“Whatever the law will do to bring such people to order, we see it as a welcome development,” he stated.
Auta said whoever has been found guilty by law courts of stealing public funds should be made to face the music.
