A-45-year-old married indigene of Borno State, Mallam Adamu Abdullahi, has commenced an 868-kilometre road walk from Maiduguri to Abuja to “meet and plead” with Presidentelect, Gen. Muhammadu Buhari (rtd) to end Boko Haram insurgency that has claimed many lives in North East Nigeria.
Abdullahi’s road walk routes cut across five states of Borno, Yobe, Bauchi, Plateau and Nasarawa through Maiduguri-Damatruru- Potiskum-Bauchi-Jos- Akwanga-Keffi-Abuja roads, measuring about 868 kilometres.

Addressing a news conference yesterday in Maiduguri at the Nigeria Union of Journalists (NUJ) press centre, Abdullahi disclosed that 21 days have been earmarked for the Maiduguri- Abuja trek to join his colleague, Suleiman Hashimu, who has completed his Lagos-Abuja walk to meet Gen. Buhari.
Though Abdullahi’s 868-kilometre road walk may appear “incredible and challenging,” he insisted that he does not care about what people would say of him in taking such risk that would involve exhaustion and fatigue on the long distance journey.
What matters, according to him, is the fulfillment of his promise to God and himself on the declaration of Gen. Buhari as President-elect by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) last month.
He therefore, urged all and sundry to join his aged surviving mother, Mrs, Zulihat Abdullahi, and his family in praying for his safety while passing through the odds and other challenges on the roads.
