The Special Adviser to Governor Abdullahi Sule of Nasarawa State on Political Affairs, Hon. Mohammed Kassim has warned against distorting information targeted to portray the image of Nasarawa state in a bad light.
Kassim stated this in a statement on Saturday in Lafia, Nasarawa state capital.
According to him, the era of politics and court cases are over, and individuals who have previously recruited and used by opposition parties to carry out campaign of calumny against the person of governor Sule should stop forthwith.
He described as force alarm being raised by some section of media that portrayed the state to be engulfed in a crisis following the Supreme Court judgement that affirmed the reelection of Governor Abdullahi Sule.
“The yesterday protest by desperate Peoples Democratic Party (PDP)supporters in front of their secretariat, where they burned some tires, should not be misconstrued for state wide crisis over the court judgment.
“Reporters are warned against spreading fake news that could tarnish the state’s image and incite unjust violence.
“Reporters must verify information before distorting reality, as the new face of government will not tolerate such actions,” he warned.
