In a nation of trekkers, a 'climber' has finally emerged.

A Facebooker, Thaddeus Yilmen, shared of a photo the first 'climber' for Buhari.

Mallam Kaura, a husband of two and father of five children, has climbed a tree and said he would not come down until President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, is inaugurated.

The man, who climbed a tree at Kurgwi Quan Pan Local Government in Plateau State on Friday, 22nd of May, has remained steadfast two days after.


There has been been a huge wave of trekkers since the Presidential elections in March. The first and most famous of the trekkers, Hasheem Suleiman, trekked from Lagos to strictly to fulfill the promise he made to trek to Abuja if Buhari is declared winner.

Since then, a host of trekkers have tried their own, including trekkers for the outgoing president, Goodluck Jonathan. Some other trekkers have trekked for their state governors.

Hopefully, the trekking trend will stop after the inauguration.
