Adamawa State Head of Civil Service, Dr Edgar Amos Sunday has called on the diverse ethnic nationalities in the state to embrace tolerance and spread the message of peace and love for the progress of the state.

Edgar whose peaceful disposition is worthy of emulation believes that the similarities that bind the different tribes of the state are much more greater than the differences that separate them.
While positing than two cannot walk together except they agree, Dr Edgar spurred the ethnic groups in the state to first of all embrace the creator and thereafter hold one another in love and respect
