The APC spokesman, Garga complained that they people of Kanam LGA don’t want to support Mohammed Abdullahi Barau but vowed to offer unalloyed support to Hon Adamu Wokdung in the forthcoming council election.
They prayed that His Excellency should rescue the peoples’ mandate stolen by chairman Latep Dabang and restore it to the rightful person, Hon Abbas Adamu Wokdung .
