Dahiru Buba, a man who trekked from Gombe to Abuja in honour of President Muhammadu Buhari, has developed broken limbs.

He made the 550-kilometre journey in 2015, when Buhari defeated then-incumbent Goodluck Jonathan tp emerge president.

It took him 15 days to complete the journey.

He is now appealing for funds to treat his broken limb, disclosing that “since the time I conducted the trekking, the limb pain is growing by the day.”

Buba,  who hails from Dukku Local Government Area, pleaded with Gombe State Governor, Inuwa Yahaya and other party leaders to come to his aid.

He told Daily Trust that he did not get any reward for embarking on the long journey for Buhari, save a certificate issued by then APC Secretary, Mai Mala Buni, which recognised him as a good fan as the president and the party.

Buni is now Governor of Yobe State and the Caretaker Committee Chairman of APC.
