Five residents of Bauchi State have revealed their plans to embark on a three-month trekking from Bauchi (Northern Nigeria) to Saudi Arabia.

Dahiru Aminu, 33; Abdullahi Hussaini (36), Kabiru Saleh (35), Abubakar Daguma (45) and Mohammed Yawale (45) said they were motivated to trek from Bauchi to Saudi Arabia following the landslide victory of Muhammadu Buhari, who contested the March 28 election on the platform of the All progressives Congress.

One Suleiman Hashimu, who said he trekked from Lagos to Abuja in appreciation of Buhari?s presidential poll victory, started the trekking-for-politicians trend, which seems to have spread among the youths.

Speaking on behalf of the group, the Secretary, Mohammed Yawale, said the trekking was to identify with Buhari because of his persistence for the past 12 years in contesting the presidential election till he won in his fourth attempt.

He said they were ready to sacrifice their lives for their mission which they added was a just cause for them.

Yawale said, ?We are motivated by the man, who trekked from Lagos to Abuja for Buhari?s victory. We also decided to trek from Bauchi to Saudi Arabia to show our profound appreciation to God for giving him victory.

?Buhari tried for 12 years to become President of this country but God didn?t make it possible for him. Now he has given him the opportunity to lead this nation. Nigeria is a decayed state and we believe that Buhari will fix things in the country.?

He believed the team would spend at least three months to trek to Saudi Arabia, dismissing all the risks involved, especially going through the insurgency-ridden area of Maiduguri.

?We will trek from Bauchi to Maiduguri and from there, we will get to Chad and then Sudan then we will proceed to Jeddah before arriving in Saudi Arabia.

?By our calculations, we will get there in three months time. We will begin a day after the swearing in of Buhari.

?We are ready to sacrifice our lives for this mission because we believe it is a just one. We implore all Nigerians to pray for us that God will give us success in our journey.

Yawale added that though they were healthy, they would all go to hospital for check-up to ascertain their physical fitness for the three-month journey to the Holy land.
