A man is making headlines in Nigeria by trekking from Lagos to Abuaj. 33 year old Suleman Hashimu made a promise two years go to make the journey should Muhammadu Buhari win the 2015 election.
This is no small feat. Lagos to Abuja is 746.5km, which is a 9 hours and 2 minutes drive. After 13 days of trekking, Suleman has worn out five pairs of shoes. Along his journey he has been received by traditional rulers and scores of well wishers providing him food and water.
Arriving at the capital shortly yesterday he was given a rousing welcome by those who have heard about his journey. Let's hope he takes a few days off for some well deserved rest!
