The man that promised to walk from Lagos to Abuja if Buhari wins or better still The Traveller has finally arrived Abuja with a rousing welcome. I think apart from mad men that walk long distances this man has really made history.
According to an eyewitness, the presence of Suleiman in Abuja attracted traffic.The bike men in town were busy displaying their riding skills while hundreds of onlookers stood by to give him a rousing welcome.
When asked why he had embarked on such a mission, Suleiman said he wanted to fulfil a promise he made two years ago. “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.”
“I made adequate financial provisions for cross-country trek, but since my journey started, I haven’t spent anything from the money since I’ve been warmly welcomed in every town or village I’ve had passed”, he added.
Hasheem, who is on a record breaking mission, is, however, not aware if Buhari knows of him but with his mission aimed at getting to Abuja before May 29 to celebrate with the new president at his inauguration ceremony, there are high chances of Hasheem meeting with the president-elect.
