The Federal Government has debunked reports that it plans to dissolve the democratic structure in Borno State and appoint a military administrator to oversee the affairs of the state.
According to the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Doctor Reuben Abati, those promoting this theory were mischief makers.
He said there is already a state of emergency in Borno state which was approved by the National assembly, which he noted is recording success.
The Presidential spokesman said the administration of President Goodluck Jonathan believes in the rule of law and has consistently placed emphasis on strict adherence to the rule of law.
There were media reports that due to the heightened insurgency in the Borno state, the federal government plans to hand over the administration of the state to the military in order to have a full grasp of the situation.
