“He is our President, and he is beyond party and so I am doing all the needful.
“There is no special thing in what I am doing, it is what I am supposed 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,” he stated.
