It was a big shock to many Nigerians who thought the sitting President in person of Ex President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan would refuse the result having full power to so. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

If that was not enough, one Mr Suleiman Hashimu who vowed that if Muhammadu Buhari wins the general election, he would trek from Lagos to Abuja to meet and congratulate the President and luckily for him, is dream came to pass. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

According to him he said, he made that promise between him and God and that's why he didn't tell anyone whether people believe him or not, that all he desire was to fulfill his dream and that is to meet with the president elect. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

While speaking about his journey, he said, he treks from 6am to 6pm everyday and anywhere night comes he would sleep there, though wasn't alone on the journey always coming across people while he was trekking.

Fortunately for him, he finally met the President elect and presented him with a gift, while President Muhammadu buhari was very excited to receive him. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

But since then till date nothing really has been heard about him at least to tell us if such opportunity comes, he would like to trek again. View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

To me I don't think anyone would like to go through that stress again in Nigeria, trekking from that distance because he/she wants to see the President! View pictures in App save up to 80% data.

The trekking that he trekked then shows the kind of hardship and suffering people will pass through under his (Buhari) leadership. Just that people didn't understand it then, if they do they should have pleaded with him not to.

He has been awarded the certificate of the most stupid man in Nigeria.

Severally, I have traveled between Lagos and Abuja. The least it takes is 12hours for prado, sienna and hummer bus on high speed to make the journey. Honestly, I will be the last to believe the lies sold to Nigerians that someone trekked between 800 to 950 kilometers as sold to the gullibles. Its a lie from the pit of hell. Nigerians celebrates mediocrity. Where is the guy? He should come and trek in protest for the killing, economic hardship and nepotism in the land. Nonsense.
