Former Deputy Senate President Senator Ibrahim Mantu has declared himself a born-again politician who hears from God.
Mantu spoke at the declaration by Prof. Tunde Adeniran to lead the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) as its national chairman in the forthcoming national election slated for December 9 in Abuja.
The former lawmaker said he had fasted for 30 days during which he said God told him the party must pick Adeniran.
Mantu urged party faithful to believe what he says, adding that Prof. Adeniran can only lead the party forward.
He said, “I’m now born again, whatever I say now is the truth. Some people came to the PDP with nothing and left with billions. We need to bring the party to the people now. We need to be sober and apologise for what we have done wrong in the past.
“After fasting and prayer, I fasted for 30 days and night asking God to show me who would lead the party. God showed me Adeniran.
“Let’s now look forward and make sure that we elect a credible chairman. We should make sure that nobody short-changes us at the national convention. ”
