A man, Isa Mohammed Munlaila, has begun trek from Lagos to Abuja against President Muhammadu Buhari’s 2019 presidential ambition.
Munlaila, who spoke with newsmen in Lagos on Thursday, said the youths were angry with Buhari for failing the nation after three years at the helm of affairs.
He lamented that people were suffering as the standard of living had gone up, adding that the president had failed to fulfill his promises to the people.
Munlaila carried a small box with Nigeria colour-Green-White-Green, on his head, with the inscription: “R.I.P APC.”
Munlaila claimed to have walked from Lagos to Lokoja in 2015 in support of Buhari and the Kogi State Government, Yahaya Bello
The Borno state man, said his trek to Abuja was to record his disappointment that the major promise of the APC to create jobs had not been fulfilled, adding that his action was not political as it could be termed in some quarters adding that he was not sponsored to embark on the trek.
He also said he had not make up his mind on which party to pitch tents with ahead of 2019.
“Actually, I want to show my disappointment for this APC. As you can see, the youths of this country are very angry. APC promised us heaven on earth, they promised us three million jobs in a year, but now, we don’t even have 500,000 jobs in four year,” he said.
Munlaila decried that the price of Premium Motor Spirit (PMS), also called petrol, has remained at N145 per litre while the dollar to naira rate had continued to affect businesses.
“I trekked during the victory in 2015, we all trekked to celebrate the victory, because there was a change in the government and we thought we got change,” he said, adding that the trek would be used to appreciate some of the leaders who were concerned with the youths of the country.
According to him, “Nobody motivated me. I have my money and I use my money to do what I want to do. I am just representing the youths of this country,” he said adding that the trek will take him between 18 and 20 days.”“I
wanted the youths to be employed. I am not for any party. I am only for anyone who has the youths at heart,” he said.
