Following the judgment of the National Assembly Election Petitions Tribunal sitting in Asaba, which nullified his election as the senator representing Delta South senatorial district,  Sen James Manager of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has vowed to appeal the judgment.

In his reaction contained in a statement personally signed by him, and made available to journalists, Manager said he was just “laughing and unperturbed” by the judgment which he described as “a miscarriage of justice and truly the tribunal erred in all fronts. We will definitely appeal the judgment.”

“I have being studying the judgment 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 judgment is certainly a miscarriage of justice and truly the tribunal erred in all fronts. We will definitely appeal the judgment.

“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.”
