The senator representing Delta South Senatorial district at the National Assembly James Manager has been pictured kneeling down before Ex governor James Onanefe Ibori.

Senator James Manager and James Ibori

Mr. Ibori who was arrested on 13 May, 2010 in Dubai and extradited to United Kingdom, where he was prosecuted and jailed for 13 years for embezzling over $250 million dollars from the coffers of Delta State government, appeared to be sitting in a parlour at his Oghara resident, with various alcoholic drinks on the table and on the floor, symbolic of a peace offering.

Released from prison in December 2016 after serving 4 years of that jail term, Mr. Ibori immediately returned to Nigeria, where he quickly became a political powerbroker and People’s Democratic Party (PDP) stalwart albeit in Delta State.

Senator James Manager’s open genuflection before Ibori may not be unconnected with his desire to seek the Delta State gubernatorial nomination ticket under the PDP.
