25-year-old begins trek from Kebbi to Abuja for Buhari

A 25-year-old man, Tukur Aliyu, an indigene of Argungu Local Government of Kebbi State, has commenced trekking from Birnin-Kebbi to Abuja, a distance of about 600km and about 11 hours by road, to celebrate the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari in the last election.

Aliyu told newsmen shortly before he left Birnin Kebbi to Abuja that he vowed to trek to Abuja if the All Progressives Congress (APC) won or lost in the presidential election.

According to him, “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.”

Aliyu, who only carried a small bag, one bow of garri, some sugar, beans cake and a total cash of N1,500 as his basic requirement for the long trip, also said when he finally reached Abuja, he would be glad if he could see President Buhari to congratulate him on his victory at the poll.

Meanwhile, the man who was reported to have died after swimming in and drinking water from a drainage in Bauchi, has claimed to be alive. While earlier reports had said one Bala Haruna, who performed the stunt last week, had died, one Aliyu Mohammed Sani, in a telephone conversation with a news medium, said yesterday that the report about his death was fake news relayed on the social media.

Sani, a painter dismissed the rumour that he was taken to hospital over any form of complication. “As I am talking to you now, I am on my way back to Bauchi after we finished a painting work somewhere outside Bauchi. It is true, I made the promise before the elections and I fulfilled it and I have no regrets,” he said.
