33- year-old, Suleiman Hashimu, who stunned not just Nigerians but the World at-large with his incessant show of fanaticism to the president-elect, Muhammadu Buhari by trekking from Lagos to Abuja will no doubt enter the Guiness Book of Record as the first man to attempt such feat.
‘The Traveller,’ as he is now been called, a native of Katsina State, disclosed that he was in Lagos when Buhari was announced the president-elect of Nigeria, so he left Lagos at about 5am the next day and arrived in Ibadan around 6pm.
Speaking to newsmen upon his arrival in Abuja, he recounts how he was discouraged by many not to embark on such highly tedious and voluminous journey, especially family members but he never gave up.
The Traveller further narrated how he encountered armed robbers close to Mokwa, but that, fortunately, he had already met one of them in Jebba and the would-be robber ended up giving him N200 for ‘pure’ (sachet) water.
Hashimu said he continued his trip from Mokwa to Kudu, then from Kutigi to Bida, and then to Suleja, after which arrived in Abuja yesterday.
Unconfirmed report said a top politician had already paid for a room in Transcorp Hilton where he would lodge.
Abubakar hopes to meet Buhari in person and congratulate him for his victory in the presidential elections.
