Suleiman

A man who promised to trek from Lagos to Abuja if Muhammadu Buhari wins the presidential election, Hasheem Suleiman, has begun the journey and is presently in Niger State.

Suleiman, who was in Lagos when Buhari was announced the President-elect on March 31, began the journey at about 5am the next day.

Suleiman had vowed two years ago to trek from wherever he was to the capital of Nigeria, Abuja, if Buhari emerges the winner of the poll in 2015.

The distance between Lagos and Abuja is about 700km. The Katsina State indigene, who was born in Osun on Monday received a royal welcome in Minna as he arrived Bida after 13 days on the road and covering about 573km.

He was given a royal welcome in Bida Kingdom by HRH Yahaya Abubakar and was also handed over a white envelope. Suleiman intends to reach Abuja by May 27 and celebrate with the new president at his inauguration ceremony.

    What a way to call attention to oneself

    • Dejo Oladimeji

      What a way to change Nigerian thought process. The man has sacrificed his own time, money and possibly his life to make this in hope that this is the beginning of change for better days in Nigeria. I do not think this act is self serving at all.

      • rita

        what economic value is spending weeks trekking to be part of a celebration to Nigeria?

    • Bello Barriga

      “Damn if you do, Damn if you don’t.” Can you for once in your pitiful life give credit to others?

    This is a challenge to Buhari and his economic team, to know that a lot of people have put their trust and hope in them. Let them give us the good governance we are yearning for, I say lets join Suleiman in this walk to ensure we get a great Nigeria joining causes that will revolutionize Nigeria in a positive way, Lets walk into Mambisa Forest, one million of us, lets see if Boko Haram will not run and leave our girls and we bring them back ourself. Do we have this liver?

  • onuigbo

    Basically, what is his core human reason for this walk?
