 Because Abuja Is Too Mainstream, 5 Men Want To Trek From Nigeria To Mecca For GMB

 

Five adult male folks have decided to hop on the train and join the association of trekkers as they have vowed to take a walk from Nigeria to Saudi Arabia to show solidarity to the president elect General Muhammadu Buhari and to thank Allah for winning the 2015 presidential elections.

The married men-Mohammed Inuwa, 45, Dahiru Aminu, 33, Abdullahi Usseini, 45, Abubakar Danjuma, 45, and Kabiru Saleh , 35, speaking with newsmen yesterday in Bauchi said their decion to embark on the trek to Saudi Arabai was informed by their deep love for Buhari

Mohammed Inuwa, spokesman of the group said: “He has tried to be president for 12 years but Allah did not make it to be possible.

“We believe he always won because he had the support of the majority.

“This time around Allah has given him the power and so we decided to trek to Mecca by road to register our unflinching support to General Buhari”

They said they were willing to sacrifice their lives for the mission but “we pray Allah will protect and guide us because we are committed to show our appreciation to General Buhari.”

 

Memphis Depay Passes Manchester United Medical

Well this was the last hurdle and the Dutchman has scaled it. Memphis Depay was one of the most sought after players in Europe but Manchester United were always favourites to land him and ended up doing so. The deal is now 95 percent complete as the player passed a medical earlier today ahead of the completion of his move.

Depay who scored 22 goals in 30 games for PSV this season agreed personal terms with Manchester United after PSV and Manchester United had agreed a 25 million euro deal that saw the 21 year old become Manchester United’s first summer acquisition. Manchester United announced that the player had passed his medical via their official site earlier today.

A few people held their breaths as Depay came in for his medical but the PSV wonderkid apparently had no medical issues and Manchester United can now focus on their next transfer deal.
