Top chieftain of the main opposition party in Nigeria, Mantu has urged the party to redirect its affairs towards serving the people well.
A former Deputy President of the Senate, Senator Ibrahim Mantu, has pronounced himself as a born-again politician.
Mantu said whatever he now says may be the truth and urged members of the Peoples Democratic Party to trust him.
Mantu spoke at the ongoing declaration by Prof. Tunde Adeniran to lead the party as its national chairman prior to the party’s convention slated for December 9 in Abuja.
The former deputy Senate president said he had fasted for thirty days during which he said God told him that party must pick Adeniran. He said, “I’m now born again, whatever I say now is the reality.
“Some people came to the PDP with nothing and left with billions. We have to bring the party to the people now. We need to be sober and apologise for what we’ve done wrong in the past.
“After fasting and prayer, I fasted for 30 days and night asking God showing me who lead the party. God showed me Adeniran.
“Let’s now look forward and made sure that people elect a credible chairman. We should ensure that nobody shortchanged us at the national convention.
