EKO HOT BLOG reports that a 51-year-old man, Alhaji Usman Madaki, who is trekking from Bauchi to Lagos to celebrate the victory of Senator Ahmed Tinubu as the 2023 flagbearer of the All Progressives Congress (APC), arrived Ilorin on Tuesday night.
According to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Madaki later left Ilorin, the Kwara capital, on Wednesday morning.
He told NAN in Ilorin before his departure that even though he has never met the APC presidential candidate in his life, he is a big fan of the former Lagos State governor.
The 51-year-old, an indigene of Bauchi Local Government Area of Bauchi State, said he commenced the trekking on June 10, and planned to arrive Lagos on Saturday (June 25).
Madaki said he faced a lot of challenges on his way, including what he suspected to be a kidnapping attempt between Kafanchan and Zangon Kataf.
He revealed that some people even mistook him for Boko Haram but when they noticed he was not looking harmful, they escorted him out of the town after gathering themselves to monitor he is no longer in the territory.
“I want to meet Tinubu in Lagos to celebrate with him on his victory as the presidential candidate of the APC.
“I share the belief that he will be Nigeria’s next President. I like Tinubu, he is my godfather even though he doesn’t know me.
“I will be leaving for Oyo State today, I think it is not far like that,” Madaki said.
