The season of the white walkers are upon us again just like the aftermath of the 2015 General Elections, when walkers and trekkers filled the country to express their joy at the victory of President Muhammadu Buhari and the All Progressives Congress (APC); this time however, the event is in support of Atiku Abubakar.
Despite the fact that none of the trekkers of old received any rewards monetary or otherwise, a young man identified as Kamaludden Bashir, has flagged the this season’s event open.
The young man has commenced trekking from Zaria to Abuja to show his support over the emergence of Atiku Abubakar as the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP).
Bashir arrived Kaduna on Tuesday, a day after he left Zaria, where he told newsmen about his plans to reach Abuja within five days.
“I am really happy with the victory that is why I am trekking to Abuja to show him that I am with him 100 per cent.
Along the way, I will sensitize thousands of youth to join me in the campaign to make Nigeria great under Atiku as president.
I believe that only he can overcome the problems of unemployment, poverty, insecurity, communal and ethno-religious crisis disturbing the peace and stability of the country.”
He narrated his route saying he left Kwarbai area of Zaria at about 6:30 am on Monday after his parents prayed for him.
Bashir believes that Atiku Abubakar’s political structures all over the country were strong enough to push for his election in February.
“I believe in Atiku that is why I am trekking in solidarity and praying for him to win the 2019 presidential election.
I believe he is the best man that can fight corruption and take Nigerian youths to the promised land.”
Although his speech was filled with hope, the ‘walking man’ had a hiccup on the way when he was robbed of his money, food and water.
The resolute believer however said he would not let the negative experience deter his resolve to complete his desired miles and kilometres as he said it was his own way of urging Nigerian youths to support the former vice president during next year’s general elections in order to put Nigeria on a better path.
