Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State has made it clear that he has no personal grudges against President Muhammadu Buhari.
Governor Ortom spoke to newsmen shortly before President Buhari arrived in the State Capital in continuation of his re-election campaign explained that his decision to give adequate support for preparation ahead of the President campaign visit was in recognition that Buhari is the leader of Nigeria.
He said that making arrangement for the President such as this, was in line with protocol and was beyond party issue.
“Mr President is beyond party. He is the president of the federal republic of Nigeria and whatever he is doing, it is our responsibility to give him adequate protocol.
“He is our president, and is beyond party and so I am doing all the needful.
“There is no special thing I am doing, than what I am suppose to do as governor of Benue State irrespective of party because he remains my president and I respect him.
“I have no personal issues with him; we talk about policies and issues, there is no personal grudge.
“So, I am here to receive him, and I have made adequate arrangement. This State belongs to Mr President. So he has access, he can be here and do whatever he wants to do.”
