Nigerians on social media have responded to a viral photo of a five-time Senator, James Manager of the Delta South Senatorial District, bending down to ibori in support of his bid to become Delta State’s next Governor.
Senator James Manager, the 61-year-old Senator representing the Delta South Senatorial District in the National Assembly, was captured on his knees by former Delta State Governor, Chief Onanefe James Ibori, most likely in his Oghara residence, in the photos that have become a growing sensation.
James Ibori, who plundered the Delta state purse and was arrested in the United Kingdom for money laundering, is still the leader of the PDP in Delta state.
Senator Manager is reportedly one of the candidates that Ijaws intend to support for state governor in 2023.
The Manager was elected to the Senate from the Delta South Senatorial District in 2003 on the People’s Democratic Party platform. He was named to the Works, Niger Delta, and Judiciary, Human Rights, and Legal Matters committees.
