Isa Munlaila, the man who began trekking from Lagos against President Muhammadu Buhari’s 2019 presidential ambition has arrived Abuja.
The man who arrived Abuja 34 days after said his action was to protest against the second term aspiration of Buhari and the current situation of the country
Speaking about on the journey on Tuesday, the young Nigerian hinted that he trekked minimum of 12 hours on daily basis and then slept anywhere night meets him and continuing his journey to Abuja.
He had initially planned to reach Abuja between 18 and 20 days, but because of a sore leg, the journey lasted for 34 days.
“As I trekked, I saw people angry with this present government because of hardship and failure to deliver on what was promised. When people see me, they hailed me for trekking. Some people were asking me if I was doing it for some political parties and I said no, but for the youths of this country. We are for good governance,” he said.
Munlaila, who said he is not a politician, however, said based on people’s view during his trek from Lagos to Abuja, he would endorse the aspiration of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar to become president next year.
