Do you remember Hasheem Suleiman, the 33-year-old man who is currently on a foot journey from Lagos to Abuja in honour of General Buhari’s victory? Well the young man is in Minna. He was received by a massive crowd in Lambata, Izom, Diko, and Suleja earlier today, Thursday, April 16, 2015.
The crowd clung to him until his supporters had to beg the people to allow the young man complete the 55km left of his journey.
Suleiman embarked on the walk to commemorate the emergence of Muhammadu Buhari as President of Nigeria after he made a vow to trek from Lagos to Abuja if Buhari wins the presidential election.
He has so far covered 677km out of 732km.
“I made the promise for this mission to show my love for the leader of the masses, General Muhammadu Buhari, and for the 13-day journey I have embarked upon, I have condemned five pairs of canvass shoes.” he says
He noted that on setting out, he had made adequate financial provisions for cross-country trek, but that since the journey started, he had not spent anything from the money since he had been warmly welcomed in every town or village he had passed.
