Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has apologized to Governor Samuel Ortom of Benue State over the conduct of security personnel attached to the gate of the Air Force Base in Makurdi.

The security personnel attached to the gate of the Air Force Base in Makurdi barred the governor from receiving the Vice-President into his state on Saturday.

Earlier, Governor Samuel Ortom advised organs of government to avoid conflating official duties with politics.

The governor said that he was more pained about the development because he had initially set out to attend the burial of Professor Ignatius Ayua, but had to delegate the duty to his deputy for him to receive the Vice President.

Osibanjo was travelling to Wukari, Taraba State en route to the Makurdi military airport in Benue to attend the convocation of the Federal University, Wukari.

It was also learnt that the authorities of the Nigerian Air force equally apologised to the governor who eventually received the Vice President at the Air Force Base.
