He urged the public especially, NDC faithfuls, to disregard such false claims from that group of aspirants who are using his name to campaign for their constituency elections, noting that no aspirants have supported him with motorbikes during the 2020 campaign.
“Some aspirants are going round telling delegates that they bought seven (7) motorbikes for Galus during the 2020 elections but deep down their hearts, they know very well that they are peddling falsehood. l am pleading to such individuals to put a stop to it. They should not think that insulting Galus will win them votes”.
Adam Mutawakilu Galus therefore, cautioned branch executives not to be deceived by any aspirant who claims he supported him during the 2020 elections with motorbikes. Such false claims are not true, such aspirants didn’t support me with even bicycles, let alone motorcycle, he further stated.
He encouraged aspirants to campaign with practical campaign messages and stop running campaigns on deceit and insults. He stressed that he won’t decline from anything said about him that is true and will always testify to the truth when the it is told.
