The Benue State Governor, Samuel Ortom, has disclosed that the Presidency has banned him from having discussions with President Muhammadu Buhari, saying my requests for discussion on issues of national security have been turned down without reasons.
Ortom said that he discovered the plan against him after his request to meet the President was not granted and that no reason was given on why it was approved.
The Governor noted that after his investigation, it was discovered that the Presidency had directed that his request for any meeting with the president should not be granted.
According to him, the meeting was basically to inform him of issues that could help stem the insecurity tide within the country particularly around the middle belt region, and that it was not for personal benefits.
Ortom, who disclosed the ban imposed on him during an interview on a popular Television talk show on Tuesday, said that the only medium he could express his displeasure against the President’s policies including the approval on open grazing routes was through the Nigerian media.
