Hashimu, the man who marched for Buhari to Abuja has come forward to deny regretting that he ever marched for the President.
Speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria, Hashimu discloses his plans to
march yet again in company of some other youths in demonstration of a
collective support and solidarity for the President.
Describing his reaction to the false news that he regrets trekking from
Lagos to Abuja to congratulate the President, Hashimu said: “I woke this
morning and some of my friends started calling and asking if I am aware
of reports in the social media, claiming that I – Hashimu – have
regretted trekking for President Muhammadu Buhari.
“It is not true. It is a rumour, false and a lie. I did not regret my
action. If I have another opportunity to trek for President Buhari, I
will do it again, even from Nigeria to anywhere.
“I do not regret my action – trekking for him. I am in support of everything he is doing,”
He maintained: “I did not speak to any journalist yesterday, today or recently,”
Disregarding the news and describing it as nothing short of a
propaganda, Hashimu said: “I am not surprised because as a politician,
he has opposition and I believe people are looking for all ways to spoil
“They spread this rumour not to dent my name but the president’s.They
also want to use the rumour to say that I am no longer with the
president, that I am no longer supporting him, it is a lie,’’
While lauding the efforts of the president, Muhammadu Buhari, Hashimu
noted that Nigerians are faced with challenges in which the President
needs to take cognisance of and act fast in solving.
“There are some challenges which Nigerians are facing. The president
needs to be aware. Whatever you doing in life, even if you are sick, you
need pain relief.
“I know he is planning big for Nigerians and Nigeria, but the relief
must come. Let the president do something quickly to address the pains
Nigerians are undergoing, especially in terms of food.
He added: “There are so many complaints, he needs to work hard,’’
