Mohammadu Kabiru Jafaru, a 35 year old Kaduna born cyclist, on Monday, April 27, 2015, embarked on a journey cycling from Kaduna to Lagos in the hopes of meeting with the vice-president elect, Prof. Yemi Osinbanjo. He said his decision to undertake the journey came when he analyzed the immense support the Yorubas gave to Gen. Muhammadu Buhari during the elections.
While addressing newsmen before he took off from the palace of Sarkin Hayin Malam Bello, Alhaji Kabiru Isa Gangarida at exactly 6: 35am said that; “I have decided to embark on this journey to Lagos because I want to go and thank Yoruba people for their immense support and contributions that led to the victory of General Muhammadu Buhari during the March 28 presidential election.”
“The decision to undertake the journey came to my mind after analysing the votes cast for Buhari by the Yoruba people and after I discussed my intention with my immediate family and friends, they encouraged me to go on the journey.”
“I have never been to Lagos before; this is my first time and only God knows how many days I will spend before reaching Lagos,” he said.
Mohammed is a resident of Hayin Mallam Bello in Rigassa, Kaduna State. He is expected to be received in Lagos by the Vice-president elect and other APC chieftains in the state.
