A man identified as Mallam Kaura has reportely climbed a tree since Friday, May 22, 2015 and has sworn not to come down until a new government is sworn in.
Kaura, who is said to be a husband of two and father of five is currently on a tree in Kantoma, Kurgwi, Quan pan Local government area of Plateau State.
A Jos-based journalist, Thaddeus Yilmen, shared the odd story via his Facebook page.
Just as expected, Kaura faced several criticisms and backlash from several internet users who dubbed him a fool, jobless and lazy man.
This is coming up just in the era of different persons doing bizarre things in honour of different politicians.
While some of them have trekked long distances, others rode on bicycles, donkeys, and now a lame tree climber that supposedly needs some medical check up to determine if he is really okay upstairs.
First it was Hasheem Suleiman, who claimed to have walked from Lagos to Abuja to congratulate the president-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari for his victory in the presidential polls,
Subsequently, one Oladele Nihi, from Kogi State embarked on a journey by feet from Abuja to Bayelsa State to honour President Goodluck Jonathan as the hero of democracy following his attitude in the just concluded polls.
Nihi was joined up by two other ladies halfway into his journey and the trio arrived President Jonathan’s home in Otuoke, Bayelsa State on Saturday, May 23, 2015 after spending 19 days on the road.
