Senator James Manager a lawyer is one Nigerian lawmaker that has remained steadily progressive in his parliamentary duties since 2003.
He talks less but remains firm when he is trying to drive home a point during debates in the Red Chamber.
Last year, Manager sent chilling messages across Delta state when he told a former Governor of Delta State they should meet in the field to determine who will represent Delta State South senatorial district.

He has chaired so many sensitive committees in the Senate and excelled and as a fourth timer the Delta born Senator is still waxing stronger everyday.
