We didn’t endorse Manager, Itsekiri leaders insist

By Emma Amaize

WARRI—ITSEKIRI Leaders of Thought, ILT, in Delta State, yesterday, denied that it had endorsed Senator James Manager, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, candidate for Delta South senatorial district.

ILT Secretary, Mr Edward Ekpoko, told Vanguard that the group was surprised to read in the newspapers that it had endorsed Manager.

He said the serving senator, who is gunning for the position for the fourth time, actually visited the group and was received by Pa J. O. Ayomike last Sunday.

“The ILT chastised him that it was only when he wants to contest elections that he comes to meet them.”

Ekpoko said that the group urged Manager to represent the three ethnic divides, Ijaw, Isoko and Itsekiri that make up the senatorial district equitably if he gets the mandate of the electorate.
