Ahead of today’s polls, Gov Muhammad Bindow of Adamawa State has directed that no civil servant should be penalised for traveling to the place of his or her registration to cast his or her votes in the state.

Bindow also urged the citizens to cooperate with security and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), by obeying all lawful instructions, during the process of the conduct of the elections.
The statement was made available by Mallam Ahmad Sajoh, commissioner for Information and Strategy, where he urged the citizens to prioritise peace, progress for the prosperity of the state.
