A Nigerian man identified as Mustapha Yusuf has been gifted a Peugeot car after trekking from Sokoto to Bauchi state in support of Governor Bala Mohammed.
The middle-aged man said he embarked on his trekking journey because of the governor's developmental projects and to inspire him to do more.
Yusuf said the governor's developmental projects are numerous and the latter has assured of his administration's commitment towards restructuring the state.
The brand new 406 Peugeot was presented to Yusuf by Governor Mohammed who stated that Bauchi is known for its hospitality and generosity.
In recent times, Nigerians have been trekking for political leaders they admire. A 50-year-old man, Dahiru Buba, who trekked from Gombe to Abuja to celebrate President Muhammadu Buhari’s victory in the 2015 general elections, received N2 million and a car gift from Gombe state governor, Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya.
Buba who is a staunch supporter of the All Progressives Congress (APC) had developed limb complications from the trek.
The governor in a statement issued by his media aide, Ismaila Uba Misilli, said the aid was to provide a new lease of life to the diehard supporter.
In his words:
“For taking the pains and risks to show solidarity with Mr. President and our great party, people like Buba should not be neglected. By embarking on that solidarity trek, Dahiru Buba had shown patriotism and support, he should therefore be appreciated and encouraged.”
