Alice said she vowed to Trek for the president-elect if he won the elections. Alice also said her decision was fueled after husband, Abdulwasiu informed her that he had a dream that GEJ was going to lose the presidential election to Buhari.
Alice told Newsline that she told her husband that it would not be possible for an incumbent president to lose the election to an opposition candidate, adding that even if he won, he would not be declared winner as was the case in the 2007 and 2011. At the time, she said, she was heavily pregnant and due for the labour ward. She promised that if Gen. Buhari won the election and was declared winner she would trek from Minna to Abuja to personally congratulate him for the victory.
She also said that there were efforts by her husband, mother and some family members as well as friends to stop her, but that her mind was made up to fulfill the promise she had made to herself. She took off on the foot journey at about 6:00am on Sunday, from Chanchaga bridge, and while sharing the experience of her mission so far, she said it was fun and that some motorists who were ignorant of her mission offered to assist her but she declined, while others gave her money.
When asked about the health hazard of her mission on her child, considering the fact that she gave birth barely 40 days ago, Alice said nothing would happen to her and her child and that she only look forward to accomplish her mission.
Alice said she intends to trek from 6:00am to 5pm daily.
