Buhari: Man undertakes bicycle ride from Kaduna to Lagos

A 35-year-old man, Mohammed Kabiru Jafaru, has embarked on bicycle ride from Kaduna to Lagos.

Jafaru said he is embarking on the trip to Lagos to thank the Yoruba for voting for Buhari during the presidential election.

Mohammed, a father of four, started his journey at exactly 6.35am on Tuesday at the palace of Sarkin Hayin Malam Bello, Alhaji Kabiru Isa Gangarida in Kaduna State.

Before beginning the journey, Mohammed told reporters: “I have decided to embark on this journey to Lagos because I want to go and thank Yoruba people for their immense support and contributions that led to the victory of General Muhammadu Buhari during the March 28 presidential election.

“The decision to undertake the journey came to my mind after analysing the votes cast for Buhari by the Yoruba people and after I discussed my intention with my immediate family and friends, they encouraged me to go on the journey.

“I have never been to Lagos before; this is my first time and only God knows how many days I will spend before reaching Lagos.

“I don’t have any fear because I believe in God that nothing will happen to me on the road; all I want is people’s prayers so that I will reach Lagos safely.”

It would be recalled that a man, Hashimu Suleima, recently trekked from Lagos to Abuja, while another, Abubakar Duduwalie, started another trekking from Adamawa to Abuja in honour of Buhari.
