A 26-year-old man, Gaddafi Musa, is riding a bicycle from Katsina State to Lagos State to congratulate the President-elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu for his victory in last Saturday’s election.
According to distance calculator.net on Google map search, Katsina to Lagos is 1,227 kilometres by road.
Musa, who arrived Ilorin, the Kwara State capital, around 4.30 p.m yesterday, said he begun his journey on Wednesday when most of the states had submitted their election results and all indications showed that Tinubu would win the election.
According to him, he embarked on the journey to fulfill the promise he made to congratulate President-elect on his bicycle in his residence in Lagos state.
Musa said the President-elect does not know him but he decided to embark on the journey because he was aware of his achievements when he was the governor of Lagos State.
The cyclist expressed confidence that the President-elect is a true nationalist who has the vision and ability to take Nigeria to greater heights.
“Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the President-elect, has assisted the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) and those devasted by insurgency and floods on various occasions with millions of naira and personal visits to ameliorate their hardship.
“Tinubu has also visited Borno State, about three times, to sympathise with the IDPs and provide monetary assistance to them. I commend the President-elect for his magnanimity and love for all without regard to ethnicity and religion.” Musa said he starts his journey on the bicycle from 6 a.m to 6 p.m due to the security challenges across the country.
He urged Nigerians to support the President-elect to succeed.
