The Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom has revealed that he has no grudges against President Muhammadu Buhari amid face-off with the presidency over herdsmen attacks.
Recall that the governor and the Senior Special Assistant, Media and Publicity to President Buhari had hitherto engaged in war of words over alleged inability of Buhari to tackle insecurity in the State.
However, in a media briefing to mark this year’s Democracy Day and his mid term as re-elected Governor, Ortom said he remembers the president in his daily devotion.
Ortom, who recalls how the people of the state organized prayers for the president when he was having a health crisis, said he has no reason to hate anyone.
He, however, admitted that they both have some disagreement over policies not favorable to the people of the state.
“I am a Christian; born again for that matter. And I have no reason to hate anyone. The president is my president.
“I pray for the president every day in my devotion. When the president was sick, Benue state was the first state that organised prayers for him under my watch.
“We can disagree on policy issues. But I don’t hate the president. My president is Muhammadu Buhari.
“But the president cannot force me to violate the Constitution which I swore to uphold,” Ortom said concerning his relationship with the president.
