Fakhrriyyah Hashim has posted on Twitter that she regrets an article she wrote in 2014 to campaign for President Buhari’s election.
Fakhrriyyah, a vocal northerner who once accused state house clinic officials of blackmailing her for exposing corrupt practices at the medical centre, wrote an article supporting Buhari in 2014.
Her article, she said, was “very ignorant” and not supported by facts.
Her article has been mourned more than anything else she has written.
In 2014, I wrote an article that regurgitated the same campaign lies the APC used on security and the economy in support of President Buhari’s bid for 2015. Although I’ve wanted to remove it, I decided to write a rebuttal to myself instead.
In my life, I have never mourned over a piece of writing as much as that one. I love my blog so much for its poems mostly because it shows me how much I’ve grown as a poet – I only started writing poetry and everything in 2014.”
