Alhaji Hassan Mohammed Sheri, a prominent member of the Peoples Democratic Party has openly begun campaigning for General Muhammadu Buhari, of the opposition All Progressives Congress.
The Daily Trust reported that Sheri has called on his supporters to vote for the former head of state in the forthcoming general elections.
Sheri, said to be a close associate of the PDP National Chairman, Alhaji Adamu Mu’azu, described Buhari as the most credible among those aspiring to lead the country in the current dispensation.
He spoke at a press conference in Bauchi on Tuesday.
He described Buhari as “an exemplary leader”, a selfless leader, who maintained his integrity despite the various positions he has held in Nigeria.
“If it is for money Buhari would have amassed wealth more than any Nigerian because he had held other lucrative positions that many Nigerians were not opportune to, that could have enriched him,” he stated.
“Let me tell you categorically that I’m 100 percent in support of Buhari presidency come 2015 and therefore appeal to all Nigerians to ensure his victory at the polls,” he said.
Sheri added that he remains a member of the PDP, despite his views.
