But Senator Manager in response, told Uduaghan, who he called a brother, that all contestants were together. He said the election was about Delta south senatorial district.
“To all my fellow candidates, particularly my main challenger, my brother, friend, ally and “Oga”, Dr. Emmanuel Ewetan Uduaghan, we are all winners together after all it is about Delta South senatorial district," he said.
“I want to sincerely thank my teeming supporters, by that I mean all in Delta south. I want to thank you all for giving me your support thus far. Your support is what I don’t take for granted.
“So, I am grateful to everybody for their continued confidence and faith in me. This victory is for all delta southerners. I am most grateful to Almighty God who has made this victory possible.
