Written by Kayode Sanni on August 8, 2022
The duo of former Governor of Plateau State JOSHUA DARIYE and former Taraba State Governor JOLLY NYAME, who were granted presidential pardon by President BUHARI few months ago, have been released by the authorities of the Nigerian Correctional Service.
Both former governors were serving jail term for corruption allegations until they were granted pardon by President BUHARI, a development that received negative reactions from the public.
DARIYE and NYAME were both jailed for stealing one-point-six billion naira and one-point-six billion naira respectively.
You would recall that the Council of State led by President MUHAMMADU BUHARI, had in April approved the pardon of 159 convicts.
