Following the successful re-election of President Muhammadu Buhari for second term, another loyal and diehard supporter of the president has reportedly started trekking from Abuja to Kebbi.
Daily Trust reports that Ahmed Sani, a member of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Solidarity Group and Presidential Support Committee, started his long trek from Zuba area of Abuja on Wednesday, March 13. by 5am.
Also in celebration of the victory of APC in the presidential, governorship and senatorial elections, Sani will reportedly make a stopover at the Government Houses in Minna, Birnin Kebbi and Sokoto to present solidarity letters to the governors and senators in the three states.
Speaking shortly before embarking on the journey Sani was quoted to have said: “I’m starting the journey at exactly 5am. I wish to inform the Kebbi State Steering Committee of the Directorate of Support Groups of the Presidential Support Committee for Buhari 2019 and all the comrades that I am just leaving Zuba, Abuja on my journey to Kebbi”.

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.
However, about three years after, a photo of Duduwale with a bandaged leg surfaced on social media.
He had developed a leg injury, probably as a result of the long distance trek.
The minister of health, Isaac Adewole, with his team, later travelled to Yola, the Adamawa state capital, to visit Duduwale who was hospitalised owing to the leg injury.
