Maraga said there was no bad blood between him and the President - "only difference in opinion."

He added: "...I want to assure you, and the entire nation, that I have nothing personal against you. To the contrary, as you know Mr. President, I have given you respect as our Head of State. Why would I want to fight you, as some people are suggesting? I am apolitical and I hold no brief for any politician. The Security and the Intelligence Services can assure you of that; and I am sure they have assured you of that."
