Man to trek 600km to celebrate with Buhari (PHOTO)
A 25-year-old man has commenced an endurance trek from Birnin Kebbi, the capital of Kebbi State, to Abuja, a distance of 600 kilometers and 11 hours by road in a bid to celebrate the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari in the February 23 election.
Shortly before his departure, Aliyu Tukur, an indigene of Argungu Local Government Area in the state, told newsmen that he vowed to trek to the capital if the All Progressives Congress (APC) won in the election.
“I made a promise and a vow that if APC won the presidential election or even if it failed, I would trek from Birnin Kebbi to Abuja. I am doing it for my party, the APC and I am doing it because of Buhari our president,” he said.
It was reported that he carried a small bag, one bowl of garri, sugar, beans cake and total cash of N1,500 as his basic requirement for the trip.
The staunch APC supporter said he would be pleased if he could see the president when he finally gets to Abuja so as to congratulate him on his victory.
