I pray for Buhari every day – Ortom

Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom says despite being an opposition he has no grudges against President Muhammadu Buhari as they disagree over herdsmen attacks.

The governor and the Senior Special Assistant, Media and Publicity to President Buhari had engaged in war of words over alleged inability of Buhari to tackle insecurity in the State.

Speaking while marking this year’s Democracy Day and his mid term as re-elected Governor, Ortom said he remembers the president in his daily devotion.

“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
