A native of Durun, Kabo Local Government area of Kano state Hussein Lawal, who was trekking from Abuja to Lagos in solidarity support for the National Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Asiwaju Ahmed Bola Tinubu has arrived Ibadan, the Oyo State capital.
Lawal who arrived Ibadan on Monday night said while on his way, men of Nigeria army and commercial drivers supported him financially.
Speaking with reporters in Ibadan on Tuesday, Lawal begged Nigerian youths to support Tinubu to become president in 2023.
He said; “I decided to walk for Tinubu because he remains the only presidential candidate with youth in his heart. Tinubu has been supporting youths before he became a governor, he did it as a governor and even after he left office as a governor.
“He remains the only leader who supported Nigerian youths regardless of their religion and ethnicity. Many of the youths who worked under him as a governor are now ministers and even vice president.
“Without Tinubu, my father and leader, President Muhammadu Buhari would have not been president. That is why I am begging youths to come out and support Tinubu for president. He started on March 9th that is about 20 days ago.
Whenever I get to check point, I introduce myself and soldiers give me financial support to get water on the road. I also relax when I get to some of the villages on the road.”
