A Nigerian citizen, Isa Mohammed Munlaila has embarked on a trek from Lagos to Abuja in protest against the President Muhammadu Buhari-led government.
Dressed in a black T-Shirt and carrying a box painted in what seemed like the colours of the ruling All Progressives Congress’ flag — green, white, blue and red — he stated that the walk is also to protest against Buhari’s 2019 re-election bid.
Addressing newsmen on Thursday morning as he prepared to commence his journey, Munlaila, who carried the box on his head, lamented that there is suffering in the country and that the present administration has failed in fulfilling its campaign promises.
He however isn’t the first Nigerian to make a political statement by trekking over a long distance.
In April 2015, 33-year-old Hashimu Suleiman trekked from Lagos to Abuja to celebrate President Muhammadu Buhari’s election victory.
Abubakar Duduwale, a diehard fan of President Buhari, also trekked from Yola to Abuja to witness the presidential inauguration in May 2015. He has however remained bed-ridden since his landmark trek.
Perhaps it’s time to stop Munlaila befoe he becomes another invalid.
