‘Stop trekking, pray instead,’ President-elect’s aide urges youths

Mohammed Shehu advised the nation’s youth to pray for Buhari instead of trekking to celebrate his victory.

Suleiman Hashimu meets President-elect after trekking from Lagos to Abuja to honour his victory.

An aide to President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari has urged youths in the country to stop trekking to celebrate his victory in the recently held elections.

Mohammed Shehu advised the nation’s youth to pray for Buhari instead of trekking for him.

Shehu gave the advice on Monday, May 18, during an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja.

“It’s kind of overwhelming. Last week, I told youths to stay where they are, stop trekking, and pray for the incoming administration instead. We have a lot of challenges; light, unemployment, insecurity, and so on,” Shehu said.

“So it is more profitable for them to stay where they are and pray instead of taking the dangerous risk of walking all the way to Abuja,” he added.

Meanwhile, a group of five men have revealed their plans to trek from Bauchi to Saudi-Arabia in commemoration of Buhari’s victory.
