Following the judgement of the which nullified the Delta South Senatorial election of February 2019, Senator James Manager whose 5th term victory suffered a set back by the decision of the election petition tribunal, has described the judgement as a miscarriage of justice, saying that the tribunal erred in all fronts.
His reaction to the judgement, published on his official Facebook Page, is reproduced below:
I have being studying the judgement of the Election Petition Tribunal with my legal team for Delta South Senatorial District which sat in Asaba today. I have also read the reaction from Dr. Emma Uduaghan (immediate past governor of delta state).
I want to firstly thank my dear people of delta south senatorial district for your show of solidarity, affection, goodwill and support at this time as always. I am in a small corner laughing and I remain unperturbed.
This judgement is certainly a miscarriage of justice and truly the tribunal erred in all fronts . We will definitely appeal the judgement. I want to urge my supporters to remain calm and patient for the outcome of our appeal for this is just a temporary setback.
Going forward, Dr. Emma Uduaghan is well aware that if the election is conducted 50 times I will emerge victorious.
Thank you and may Almighty God bless you all. We will triumph.
