Despite a public spat with President Muhammadu Buhari, Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has stated that he has never insulted him.

Some Nigerians misinterpreted the governor’s criticism of the president over the security situation in his state, according to a 24-second video shared on his official Facebook page on Sunday morning.

He criticizes the president to ensure that his administration succeeds, according to him.

He said, “Sometimes I talk about the presidency and at one point some ignorant people said that I was castigating President Muhammadu Buhari.

“Some were so ridiculous to the extent of saying that I insult Mr President, I did not insult him. It is true that as a leader, I want him to succeed so I criticize”.

NEWSDIRECT reports that the Benue State Government and the presidency have several times engaged in face-off over alleged inability of President Buhari to tackle insecurity in the state.
