A young man, identified as Kamaludden Bashir, was seen today trekking from Zaria to Abuja in order to celebrate Atiku Abubakar’s primary election victory and as well as to show his support for the emergence of the former Vice-President.
Bashir however told newsmen that he plans to reach his destination — Abuja within the next 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 him can overcome the problems of unemployment, poverty, insecurity, communal and ethno-religious crisis disturbing the peace and stability of the country.
He also noted that he left for Abuja from Zaria on Monday at 6:30am after receiving prayers from his parents.
Bashir believed that Abubakar’s 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.”
Bashiru also revealed that he was robbed of his money, food and water along the way, but said the experience would not deter him from continuing with the journey.
Bashir urged Nigerian youths to support the former vice president during the general elections so as to put Nigeria in a better direction.
