“I have done it before, so I will not repeat it. That was my contribution to his campaign then and I am still hoping he wins the next general election to continue the change agenda,” Hashim told Daily Trust.

The father-of-one, who came to fame on account of the widely reported journey, told  the paper that there was an erroneous belief among his friends and relations that he is now rich and influential, prompting them to seek help from him always.

He said, “Many people have been coming to me to demand for things like introduction letter or asking me to assist them get employment. When I tell them that I can’t assist them and that I also need assistance, they become offended and these include relations and friends.”

Hashim, who hinted of his travail, said that he has been abandoned by the leadership of the All Progressive Congress, APC, saying, “when I was depressed recently, I wrote to the former and incumbent chairman, the Director General of Buhari Campaign Organisation, Chibuike Amaechi and the Secretary General but they have not responded to my plight.”
