In 2015, Abubakar Duduwale, a supporter of Pres Buhari, walked from Yola, Adamawa State to Abuja, to celebrate the president’s victory and withness the inauguration. The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reported that Duduwale said in Yola at the onset of the walk that the adventure was to express his joy over the emergence of Buhari as the president of Nigeria.
“The reason why I am trekking from Yola to Abuja is to express my joy and solidarity with President-elect Muhammadu Buhari.
“I want to trek from Yola to Abuja to witness the inauguration ceremony of President-elect,” Duduwale was quoted to have said in 2015.
Duduwale, from Yola north local government area of Adamawa and Chamba by tribe, began the journey at Yola Gate on Yola-Numan highway at about 6.30am. The Nigeria Television Authority (NTA) also covered Duduwale’s trek from the starting point at Yola.
This report is however coming years after Hashimu Suleiman, the man who also trekked from Lagos to Abuja in celebration of President Muhammadu Buhari’s victory in 2015 presidential election described his action as a big mistake.
Suleiman said he regretted trekking for Buhari who has now made life unbearable for the masses. The man expressed his dissatisfaction with the way the president has been ruling Nigeria in the last one year.
He was quoted as saying, “Removing fuel subsidy at this hard time is not palatable to hear, when so many workers and labourers can hardly put food on their table, many companies have folded up, and cost of living is very high.
“Nigerians have been hoping for a positive change for a very long time, enduring hardship and now the Federal government wants to make things worse for the masses.”
