- Dahiru Buba trekked from Gombe to Abuja to celebrate President Muhammadu Buhari's victory in the 2015 general elections
- The Gombe state indigene is now facing health challenges as he is going through limb pains
- Buba has called on the governor of Gombe state and the leadership of the All Progressives Congress to help him out of his predicament
A Nigerian man who trekked from Gombe to Abuja for 15 days to celebrate President Muhammadu Buhari's victory in the 2015 general elections is facing health challenges.
Daily Trust reports that the man identified as Dahiru Buba is suffering from serious limb pains and he has appealed to his state governor and the leadership of the All Progressives Congress to come to his rescue.
Legit.ng gathers that Buba, who is from Dukku local government area of Gombe, said the adventure got him nothing but an APC certificate.
He said the pains are becoming unbearable, adding that he cannot even pay his children's school fees.
“Since the time I conducted the trekking, the limb pain is growing by the day.
“I am appealing to my governor, Governor Inuwa Yahaya of Gombe State and the party leadership to help me look for medical assistance.”
In 2015 after Buhari defeated Goodluck Jonathan in the presidential election, some Nigerians decided to honour him in their own way by trekking long distances.
Buba was not the only one who trekked for the president and later felt regret. One Hashimu Suleiman who also embarked on the same journey, a year after his long trip, said trekking for Buhari was his greatest mistake.
In other news, Sunday Dare, Nigeria's minister of youth and sports, has said President Buhari will break his silence on the shooting at Lekki toll gate when he has all the facts.
Speaking on Arise Television on Friday, October 23, the minister said an investigation into what happened has already been ordered by Buhari and is ongoing.
