The senator representing Delta South Senatorial District in the National Assembly under the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party, Senator James Manager, has on Saturday said that the Delta state chapter of the PDP is slowly fading out.
Manager shared his concerns in a signed statement made available to newsmen 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 Manager in the statement, denied initiating a court case against any of the PDP aspirants in 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.
“The purported story sponsored by well-known political merchants is a cesspool of lies and a journalism junkyard from where stories are fabricated against leading political lights.
“It is another desperate attempt to drag my humble self into the mud-sliding and regrettable- avoidable political quagmire we all find ourselves in Delta PDP today.
“I have spent almost 30 years in this business of politics and these stupendous insinuations being sponsored and peddled in the media by these political jobbers are not my modus operandi.
“My style on matters like this over the years are different. The story is fake and nothing could be farther from the truth.
“As the pioneer State Chairman of the party and by extension the father of PDP in Delta State, I would not do anything to further exacerbate the problems for the party and the future of Deltans because Delta is PDP and PDP is Delta.
“I’m greatly disturbed by the recent happenings at the party today. I 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.
“Going forward, we have to be prayerful to God Almighty and belief in His Supremacy. May God not allow those who are inside and outside PDP who have all used its platform to acquire the big names they have today to destroy it. May that day never come, AMEN!”
