One other supporter of Gen. Buhari, identified as Abubakar Duduwale , has set for a walk from Yola in Adamawa to Abuja.
Speaking to newsmen in Yola on Saturday before the commencement, he said he wanted to use the adventure to express his joy over the emergence of Buhari as president-elect.
He noted that he would have started the hike a day after the Independent National Electoral Commission announced Buhari as winner but someone else from Lagos forestalled him.
“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, he said.
Duduwale, who is from Yola North Local Government Area of Adamawa and Chamba by tribe, reportedly began the journey at Yola Gate on Yola-Numan highway at about 6:30 a.m.
