Who says President Muhammadu Buhari is old and cannot run? Well the Nigerian president surprised everyone when he joined others who came for the lesser Hajj in Mecca to run around the holy mosque in Saudi Arabia.

The video shot by NTA and shared by many Twitterati shows the president and his entourage break into some sprinting while performing one of the rites of the Hajj at the Masjid Haram (the Grand Mosque) in Makkah.

The video has ignited comments from supporters, urging all the people who had painted the president as ill and unfit to hold public office to seek forgiveness from God.

Adumah @adumahsonu wrote a typical comment: Just saw a clip of Buhari running in SA. Funny and strange at the same time. Doesn’t fit the frail and sickly image the media has painted of him.

Can you identify all the Nigerian officials in this photo with Buhari in Saudi Arabia
