‘Seun Ibukun-Oni, Abuja
DAILY COURIER – Four days after the inauguration of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, a young man has arrived the APC National secretariat, Abuja trekking from Benue.
Nyor David who started his journey on inauguration day, May 29 is the coordinator of Benue Youth Volunteer for Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu. While speaking to journalists today June 2, shared passionately his belief in President Tinubu and wish to have a hand shake with him.
He said: “My only request is to take a photo shot standing beside my president so that when I return back to Benue, everyone will see me with my president.”
Explaining what informed is decision to trek from Benue State to Abuja, said during the campaigns a friend rooting for the Labour Party presidential candidate, Mr Peter vowed to leave the country if Tinubu wins the election and he also promised to trek from Benue to Abuja.
“I was hanging out with some of my mates majorly Obidents and we were discussing who will win the presidential election and I said Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu will win due to his track records in Lagos state as governor, relationship with people across the country that made all his associates from 1999 are still with him unlike Peter Obi who has no relationship with Nigerians. The only relationship he has is in Anambra State which is not strong. One of them now said if Tinubu emerges as president, he will leave Nigeria and I said if Tinubu becomes president, I will trek from Benue to Abuja to honour his victory” he said.
David added that the four days journey from Benue was challenging but his resolve to keep his promise spurred him on none the less.
He said: “I thought it was going to be easy but when I started my legs were paining me and that was when I knew that trekking that far is not easy but because of the promise I made to the people, I kept on trekking.
He concluded that he has high hopes for Tinubu administration because of his antecedents while he was the governor of Lagos between 1999 to 2005.
“He governed well while he was in charge of Lagos state, so I expect that he will do well as the president of Nigeria” he concluded.
