A lad identified as Abdullahi Afolabi Nadabagi on Monday morning left Abeokuta, Ogun state capital to embark on a trek to Lagos state.

He disclosed that his mission to walk on foot is to meet with the former governor of Lagos and a national leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu to thank him for supporting Buhari in the last poll.

Abdullahi, a native of Nupe, Niger state commenced his journey from the popular OPIC roundabout, Oke Ilewo, Abeokuta at exactly 6:43am.

The fashion designer and father of two, called on Nigerians to assist him with prayer, hinting that, his purpose is in the interest of all.

According to him, “When I saw everybody going to Abuja to praise Buhari for his victory, I thought, we need to honour the magic man behind the success. You and I know that General Muhammed Buhari had contested three times but the last one he won with the singular efforts of this great Nigerian and undoubtedly, Yoruba leder, Tinubu.

“Tinbu contributed immensely to the victory of Buhari and other candidates of the APC. Before the elections, many people had prophesied that the country will disintegrate after the polls but Nigerians have shamed all the prophets of doom and we had a smooth and successful election.

“The Jagaban Borgu remains an engineer of revolution and a master strategist, who used his political sagacity and experience to give us total revolution in Nigeria without bloodshed.

“This man must be appreciated and praised. He stood like the Rock of Gibraltar behind Buhari, and against all odds, humiliation, harassment, intimidation, hate statements, lies and other things, he remained undaunted and ensured that APC won. So, when young Nigerians from Abuja, Adamawa, Bauchi, Kaduna and other parts of the country are trekking down to Abuja to greet the president-elect, I decided to go and greet the man behind the success, Bola Ahmed Tinubu,” he stated.

The son of the former King of Nupe people in Ogun state disclosed that the journey will take him four days because he will stop over for a rest 6:00pm daily to have a 12 hours rest before continuing the following day by 6:00am.

He is taking the old Lagos Abeokuta old road to Lagos through Wasinmi, Itori, Ifo, Sango Ota and then link Lagos through Alakuko-Amje-Alagbado axis.

Abdullahi said that he had met with the DPO of Sabo, Abeokuta for security permit, which the police boss has granted him.

On his health condition, he affirmed that he was fit and okay for the journey, adding that, his medical doctor confirmed his medical status, certifying him okay for the trip.

“Even, if Tinubu is based in Abuja, I am strong and okay to trek down. I have contacted my doctor and he has certified me okay for the journey. I am just fortunate because if he is base in Kaduna, Bauchi or Abuja, I will trek down there from this spot in Abeokuta to thank him for giving us hope for a better Nigeria”.

Abdullahi’s father, Alhaji Chief Nasir Ndabagi was the former King of Nupe people in Ogun state before he died few years ago.

He disclosed that his intention and desire is to meet with the royal father of Lagos, Oba of Lagos, HRH Oba Rilwan Akiolu; Governor of Lagos state, Babatunde Raji Fashola and if possible, the state lawmakers before setting out to political mecca of Lagos, Bourdillon street, resident of Jagaban of Borgu, Asiwaju Tinubu
