Reacting to the reports, Gwede, said: “Information has reached me that my Party, Action Alliance in which l am the Governorship candidate, alongside others were used by an imposter to adopt Rt Hon Oborevwori as a consensus candidate in the March 18, 2023, Governorship election in Delta state.

“About nine Governorship candidates were said to have adopted Rt Hon Oborevwori.

“I wish to say without any equivocation that I did not adopt Oborevwori as a consensus candidate neither did I send anyone to do so on my behalf.

“I am still in the race as Governorship Candidate of AA and no amount of blackmail will deter me from contesting the election.

“I have informed the security agencies to fish out the impostor and prosecute him”.
