Why Dariye, Nyame continue in prison after pardon – Correctional Service

It has been learned that the former Governor of Plateau State, Joshua Dariye, and his counterpart, Jolly Nyame of Taraba State are yet to be released from Kuje Correctional Centre.

The ex-governors are still in prison about two weeks after they were pardoned by the National Council of States alongside 157 others.

However, the Federal Government is yet to send documents regarding their pardon to the Correctional authorities to enable them to perfect the process for their release.

On hearing the news of their pardon, the ex-governors were said to have been thrown into excitement and appreciated the gesture of the Council.

Their high spirits are allegedly waning following the criticism that trailed their release from a cross-section of Nigerians and the slow pace of the process to perfect their release.

Officials of the facility who confided in our Correspondent said only the lawyers of those pardoned would know details of the process for their pardon and release from the prison facility.
