DELTA SOUTH JUDGEMENT: Our Faith in Nigeria’s Judicial System  was not in Vain -Timi Dajagbasan

 

A political group, United Ijaw, Itsekiri and Isoko for Delta South Advancement, otherwise known as Delta South United, DSU has hailed the judiciary for proving yet again to be the hope of justice seekers in Nigeria. 
 
The convener of the group, Chief Timi Dajagbasan speaking after the group’s quarterly meeting which held yesterday, September 10 in Oleh, hailed the judiciary for quashing the phyrric victory of Senator James Manager in the February 23, 2019 National Assembly election in Delta South. 
 
Dajagbasan who also doubles as a Chieftain of the All Progressives Congress said the people of Delta South had unshakable faith in the tribunal to stop the People’s Democratic Party candidate, Senator James Manager from running away with the mandate of the people, declaring that the Ijaws, Itsekiris, Isokos and Urhobo communities in Delta South voted against the four time Senator who had performed below average at the Senate.
 
“We know Senator James Manager did not win the election. This is why we commend the judiciary for establishing that there was massive rigging in the areas he controlled and subsequently cancelled those humongous votes. Even Warri South that has the highest population of voters in the District could not produce a quarter of the votes from Senator Manager’s LGA that can not equate the population of Oleh. It is a no brainer that Manager rigged that election. The era of electoral impunity is over. Thank God the court has found his sins out. I read somewhere where he boasted that he would defeat Uduaghan even if the election is conducted fifty times. It is very laughable because we know he can not beat the former Governor Uduaghan in a free and credible election.
 
Corroborating his position, a co-convener of the group, Comr. Bethel Ogagaoghene said the group is confident the people through Dr. Uduaghan would get the mandate of Delta South from the Court of Appeal. 
 
“We would have been happier if the candidate of the APC, Dr. Emma Uduaghan was declared outright winner at the tribunal with the remaining valid votes but all hope is not lost. Senator Manager has a very bad case going to the Court of Appeal. We have faith in the judiciary. They would declare Uduaghan winner because we don’t see the need for a rerun rather punishment for the electoral offenders should be met out,” he advised.
