The defection of Senator Chibi Dariye from the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) to the All progressive Congress (APC) has continued to garner knocks at him, as his own constituents have added their voice by passing a vote of no confidence on him.
Passing their vote of no confidence in a press briefing yesterday, PDP members and elders from Sen. Dariye’s Plateau Central District, said they see his act of defecting as a “betrayal of trust”.
They said in their press text read by Hon. Benedict Shignuhul (KSM), who doubles as the Vice Chairman, PDP, Plateau Central District that, “for the avoidance of doubt, we wish to state that there is no division whatsoever in the PDP. It is therefore clear that Senator Dariye’s decision to defect was a unilateral decision taken by him”.
“We therefore see his defection as an act of betrayal of trust.
“We have therefore met at all relevant levels of the party in the state and hereby pass a vote of no confidence on Senator Joshua Chibi Dariye and therefore can no longer have him as our representative in the hallowed Red Chambers.
“In view of the above, we want to place on record the collective and undivided support and appreciation of the PDP family in Plateau Central Senatorial District for the steps so far taken by the State EXCO, of our great party to reclaim out mandate.
