33-year-old Suleman Hashimu who got on a solo trek from Lagos to Abuja after vowing to do so if retired General Muhammadu Buhari wins the presidential elections, is now in Abuja, the capital city of Nigeria.
He was received by the emir of Zuba, the Agora of Zuba, in Gwagwalada Area Council of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Alhaji Mohammed Bello.
Lagos to Abuja is 746.5km, which is 9 hours 2 minutes drive.
A medical team was on stand-by to receive him, even though he is still in good shape.
Below are pictures of crowd welcoming him:
Two years ago, Hasheem said, he made a promise to trek from Lagos to Abuja if Buhari wins the then-upcoming election, saying the purpose of terminating his journey in Abuja is where he thinks he could see the retired General and congratulate him.
Hasheem, who grew up in Osun and Lagos, now lives in Ibadan where he is working with a construction company. Hasheem said that his decision to embark on the mission was borne out of happiness he feels for General Muhammadu Buhari becoming a leader for the masses.
He said in Bida four days ago that after 13 days of trekking, he had so far worn-out five pairs of shoes with a new pair just bought for him by a Good Samaritan. He showed Weekly Trust the blisters on his feet, which made him pass two days in Bida, so as to treat himself.
Hasheem said before embarking on his mission, he ensured that he was financially equipped but to his amazement, up to the time he arrived Bida, he did not have to spend a single kobo from his pocket because of kind, generous receptions he has been receiving.
