The reason for this, according to him, is because he expected more from the President Buhari, and is dissatisfied with the way the president has been ruling Nigeria so far.

Speaking about the removal of subsidy and increase in fuel prices, he said; “Removing fuel subsidy at this hard time is not palatable to hear, when so many workers and labourers can hardly put food on their table, many companies have folded up, and cost of living is very high.

“Nigerians have been hoping for a positive change for a very long time, enduring hardship and now the Federal government wants to make things worse for the masses.”

Hashimu met with President Buhari last April after he had successfully walked from Lagos to the FCT, where the President, who was yet to be sworn in at the time, thanked him for the show of support and presented him with a gift.
