2023: Man Treks 425Km from Gombe to Abuja for Tinubu/Shettima
By Idris Umar
A supporter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Mohammed Waziri has trekked for 15 days from Gombe to Abuja in support of the party’s presidential candidate Bola Tinubu and his running mate, Kashim Shettima’s victory in 2023 election.
Waziri, who was accompanied by his admirers to submit some documents to the APC presidential campaign office in Abuja, disclosed that he trekked the long distance to show solidarity to the party’s candidates.
He said there was no threat to his life since he embarked on the trekking on October 24, 2022 from Gombe even though he passed through terrible areas to Abuja.
Waziri said since the emergence of Tinubu as the APC presidential candidate, he had organised several meetings within the six states that make up the North East zone on the need to support Tinubu to win.
He said: “Trekking from Gombe to Abuja is to show Tinubu that North East zone of the country is happy with him, and in full support of his aspiration.
“We are not going to disappoint Tinubu/Shettima, we are aware of what had happened in past. Both of them served their people in the capacity of Governors well, this shows that they are experienced and competent to lead Nigeria.
“The essence of my trekking is to encourage people to believe in leaders and work for them,” he added.
Receiving the trekker, the deputy chief security officer (CSO) at the APC presidential campaign office, Audu Odanmehol, said the leaders who would have received him travelled to Jos, the Plateau state capital for the party’s rally.
He congratulated him for trekking in support of Tinubu and his running mate, Senator Shettima.
