A young man identified simply as Mukaila, from Borno state, who allegedly trekked for the All Progressives Congress (APC) prior to the 2015 election, has commenced another trekking from Lagos to Abuja on Thursday, August 23, ahead of 2019 election.
According to reports, Mukaila, said he embarked on another trekking this time to Abuja is to record his disappointment that the major promise of the APC to create jobs had not been fulfilled.
He lamented that the price of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), also called petrol, has remained at N145 per litre while the dollar to naira rate has continued to affect businesses.
“I trekked during the victory in 2015, we all trekked to celebrate the victory, because there was a change in the government and we thought we got change,” he said adding that the trek would be used to appreciate some of the leaders who are concerned with the youths of the country.
“Nobody motivated me. I have my money and I use my money to do what I want to do. I am just representing the youths of this country,” he said adding that the trek will take him between 18 and 20 days.
He also disclaimed reports and speculations indicating that he got sick after earlier trekking in 2015.
“As you can see, I am starting another trek. I wanted the youths to be employed. I am not for any party. I am only for anyone who has the youths at heart,” he said.
