WARRI – GOVERNORSHIP candidate of the Peoples Redemption Party, PRP, in the just concluded polls, Mr. Emmanuel Igbini, yesterday, condemned  eminent jurist, Prof Itse Sagay, for allegedly hoodwinking Deltans with half-truths in his purported bid to be seen and celebrated as a national human rights activist.

In a statement made available to Vanguard, he said, “I just listened to Prof. Itse Sagay’s comments on Channels Television where he called for cancellation of recently held “elections” in Delta State and further describing Deltans as “barbarians when it comes to elections”.

His words, “I would have ignored him since he is only exercising his fundamental right to freedom of expression and opinion but for the fact that in exercising his freedom, he unjustifiably and arrogantly chose to dehumanize me as a Deltan and violated my fundamental right to “human dignity” guaranteed by section 42 of the Nigerian Constitution by describing me as a barbarian.”
