In the midst of a standoff with the government over herdsmen attacks, Benue State Governor Samuel Ortom has claimed that he holds no grudges against President Muhammadu Buhari.

NEWS DIRECT recalls that the governor and President Buhari’s Senior Special Assistant for Media and Publicity had previously engaged in a verbal battle over Buhari’s perceived failure to address insecurity in the state.

Ortom, though, said he remembers the president in his daily devotion during a press conference to commemorate this year’s Democracy Day and his mid-term as re-elected Governor.

Ortom said he had no reason to dislike anyone, recalling how the people of the state arranged prayers for the president during a health crisis.

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
