Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has reacted to the planned visit to the state by President Muhammad Buhari.
Speaking through his Chief Press Secretary, Terver Akase, the Governor said Buhari is the father of the nation and as such can visit any state of the federation anytime he so wished.
Ortom said that Benue was part of Nigeria and the president was free to visit at will.
When asked by reporters if Benue is happy with the visit and their expectations, Terver said, “I don’t have anything to say beyond that.
“The president is the owner of the country and he can visit any part of the country anytime he so wishes.”
The Presidency on Monday, announced that President Buhari would commence visitation to violence-hit states.
