David Nyor, a graduate of Benue State University, who is honouring President Bola Tinubu by trekking from Makurdi, has arrived at the national headquarters of the All Progressives Congress.
The 30-year-old began the journey on presidential inauguration day May 29, and arrived in Abuja on Friday evening.
Dressed in a white T-Shirt on black joggers and a black face cap, Nyor made his way to the secretariat at about 2.30 pm to announce his arrival.
Nyor, the coordinator of Benue Youth Volunteers, told PUNCH that he embarked on the mission to keep his word.
“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 Tinubu will win due to his track records in Lagos State as governor and his relationship with people across the country.
“I also said he was the only candidate whose associates from 1999 are still with him, unlike Peter Obi who has no relationship with many Nigerians. The only relationship he has was in Anambra State which is not strong enough.
“One of them told me if Tinubu wins, he will leave Nigeria and I replied that if Tinubu becomes president, I will trek from Benue to Abuja to honour his victory. 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 said.
Asked if he expects any reward from the president for his effort, the graduate of educational management said, “My only request is to take a photoshoot standing beside my president so that when I return back to Benue, everyone will see me with my president.”
