Buhari Explains Why He Walked 800m In Daura

President Muhammadu Buhari has explained why he walked 800m in his hometown in Daura after Eid prayers on Tuesday, through a statement released by Buhari's spokesman Garba Shehu.

Contrary to various opinions on social media implying that the President walked 800 miles to prove he is fit to run for office, the president, in a meeting with representatives of the 5 local governments in Daura Emirate, explained that the walk was not about proving his fitness level or scoring cheap political points. 

He said: "This is my constituency, the people came out in their large numbers to see me and the car in which I was being driven had tinted windows.

They were not seeing me so I came down so they could see me. I didnt need to convince anyone about my health and the decision to contest for a second term  a decision that I made public in April this year."

Hopefully with this report Nigerians will be convinced that the president's intention is not about scoring cheap political points as they thought.
