Following his role at the just concluded presidential election, two trekkers and a bicycle rider, who claimed to have travelled from Lagos, Kaduna and Shelleng to Yola, the Adamawa State capital, in honour of former Vice President, Atiku Abubakar, were said to be stranded in Yola.

Speaking with newsmen in Yola on Saturday, the men, who identified themselves as Salihu Jibrin, Aliyu Adamu and Abubakar Suleiman lamented that since their arrival, they have not been able to get access to Atiku.

According to Jibrin, “I trekked for 38 days all the way from Lagos to Yola to see Atiku in view of his role over APC victory in the general election but up to now I was unable to see him.

“I am now stranded with no money to go back; at times I sleep in motor park or squat with good Samaritans”.

Adamu, the bicycle rider said he rode from Kaduna to Yola, it took him eight days to arrive his destination.

According to him, “I want to thank the Secretary, Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ), Adamawa Council, Mr Baba Zare, who had been assisting me since arrival to cope with the difficult situation I found myself.

“I want to meet Atiku before finding my way back to Kaduna.”

Suleiman, who trekked from Shelleng town, Adamawa, to the state capital noted that he had been squatting from one relative to the other while waiting for an opportunity to see Atiku before going back home.
