The senator representing Delta South Senatorial District in the National Assembly under the platform of People’s Democratic Party, Senator James Manager, on Saturday declared that with the latest happenings within the Delta State chapter of the PDP, the party “is drowning and dying gradually” in the State.
Senator James Manager, one of the PDP governorship aspirants in Delta State ahead of the 2023 general elections, made the declaration in a signed statement made available to journalists in Warri.
The statement was in reaction to the judgement of the Federal High Court, Abuja disqualifying Hon. Sheriff Oborevwori as the PDP governorship candidate in the state.
Senator James Manager stated that he “would not feign ignorance as the party is drowning and dying gradually”.
“If nobody is seeing it, I am seeing it and I am also feeling it greatly. I would have initiated certain preliminary actions pro bono but because I’m directly involved as a contender, I’m constrained. I want to be extremely careful and cautious with suggestions and interventions,” he further stated.
He, however, called for caution among party loyalists, stressing that he would not do anything that would “further exacerbate the problems for the party and the future of Deltans because Delta is PDP and PDP is Delta”.
The statement read partly, “I want to react to a trending story on a section of the media that I initiated a court case against one of the PDP governorship aspirants in Delta State.
