A 51-year-old man, Alhaji Usman Madaki, is trekking from Bauchi to Lagos to celebrate the victory of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu as the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) ahead of the 2023 general elections, arrived in Ilorin on Tuesday night and is set to continue his journey as he leaves for Oyo State.

It was reported that Madaki has left Ilorin, the Kwara capital.

Report has it that before his departure he said that even though he has never met the APC presidential candidate in his life, he is a big fan of the former Lagos State governor.

The 51-year-old, an indigene of Bauchi Local Government Area of Bauchi State, said he commenced the trekking on June 10 and planned to arrive in Lagos on Saturday (June 25).

“I want to meet Tinubu in Lagos to celebrate with him on his victory as the presidential candidate of the APC.

“I share the belief that he will be Nigeria’s next President. I like Tinubu, he is my godfather even though he doesn’t know me.

“I will be leaving for Oyo State today, I think it is not far like that,” Madaki said.

The trekker explained that he would always try to see if he could get any APC stalwart that could help him anywhere he arrived, but could not get one when Tuesday in Ilorin because of rains.

“Since when I moved around 8 a.m on Tuesday in Bandaru, a border between Niger State and Jebba in Kwara, the rain began on me and finished on me.

“There was nowhere to get a vehicle or motorbike because of the heavy downpour,” he said.

Recall that Tinubu defeated Vice-President Yemi Osinbajo; Rotimi Amaechi, former Minister of Transportation; Senate President Ahmad Lawan, and 10 other presidential hopefuls, to clinch the ticket at the APC primaries in Abuja.
