Senator James Manager warns APC not replicate Kogi in Edo

Meet Senator James Manager Who Got 300 NDDC Contracts, None ...
Senator James Manager (PDP, Delta South), has warned All Progressives Congress, APC, against replicating what happened in Kogi State in Edo State during the September 19 governorship election..
Senator Manager, who has been a senator since 2003, expressed confidence that the PDP candidate, Governor Godwin Obaseki, will win the election, just as he urged Edo people not to allow anyone to intimidate them.
Speaking with newsmen in Abuja, Senator Manager reacted to comments by Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State that the power of incumbency will not guarantee victory for Governor Obaseki, who recently dumped APC for the PDP.
He said: “I am very confident that PDP will win Edo State. The other day I listened to the Governor of Kogi State, Yahaya Bello where he boosted that incumbency will not work for Obaseki.
“They should realize that Edo State is in the Niger Delta, Niger Delta is not Kogi State. The circumstances are different.
“He must realize that in his victory in Kogi State, the Governor of Edo State, who is now the PDP governorship candidate, was involved. He knows, he was a member of that family. He was involved in all that happened that led to the victory of the Kogi governor.
“So, he must be circumspect when making such statements. In politics, people make statements to intimidate opponents, but Edo people will never be intimidated.
“I repeat, whatever happened in Kogi State during that election can never and must never be replicated in Edo State because that is the heart of the Niger Delta.”
