Adamawa government says it would take legal action against any media reportage along religious line aimed at causing  crisis in the state.

The reaction was against the backdrop of online reports that governor Muhammad Bindow is under pressure to drop his deputy for a Muslim candidate.

In a statement by Ahmad Sajoh, Commissioner for Information and Strategy, the report was from discredited politicians, who have lost value and using ethnicity and religion for personal interest.

“Their desperation, includes the recent hijacking of a peaceful procession organised  by credible body in the state.

“The online reporter is a former politician who left the APC for the PDP believing that financial war chest of the parties would determine their electoral fortunes.

“Any medium that deliberately peddles fictitious reports to tarnish the image of government for selfish interest would be treated in the court of law.

“Government is aware that some politicians in the state who have lost political relevance have resorted to using ethnicity and religion as political currencies in the run-up to the 2019 elections.

Sajoh said no amount of religious bigotry would stop government from improving the wellbeing of its people in the state.
