Abdullahi Usseini , 45 ; Abubakar Danjuma , 45 ; and Kabiru Saleh , 35 , explained that their decision to

embark on the foot journey was fuelled by their undying love for the Buhari.
Speaking on their behalf, Inuwa said , “ He has tried to be president for 12 years , but Allah did not make
it to be possible .
“ We believe he always won , because , he had the support of the majority . This time around , Allah has
given him the power and so, we decided to trek to
Mecca by road to register our unflinching support to General Buhari”

They said they were ready to give their lives for the mission, but “ we pray Allah will protect and guide
us because we are committed to show our appreciation to General Buhari . ”
The men said they had consulted widely with families and friends and had made adequate preparations
for the journey, which they estimated would take them at least three months and would see them
transverse countries of Chad , Sudan before reaching their destination in Mecca .
The men said that they hoped to begin their trek on May 30 , a day after Buhari’ s swearing- in and asked
Nigerians to pray for them to succeed in their mission
