He noted that the claim was scripted and smuggled into the media with a view to embarrass the minority leader as well as the Governor of Delta state, Ifeanyi Okowa ahead of the 2023 general elections.

His words:

"This is because at no time was the well-received PDP Ward to Ward Campaign in Delta North Senatorial District disrupted or challenged, let alone prevented in Oko by angry youth as claimed in the said publication.
"Also, at no time did any persons, group of persons or youths challenged or stopped the Minority Leader, Rt. Hon Ndudi Elumelu from entering Oko Community or any other community for that matter as purported in the misleading report."
