He stressed that Delta South Senatorial district and Burutu Federal Constituency need a replay of Senator Manager and Honourable Pondi in order to consolidate on their achievements for the people.
Botu called for support from the people saying that they remain the priority and focus of the representation of Senator Manager and Hon.
