Woman with a 40 day old infant treks to Abuja in honor of Buhari’s win


I wonder when this trekking trend will end.
35 year old Mrs. Alice Daniel, has joined the
league of trekkers and is doing so from
Minna to Abuja for President elect, Buhari.
In the case of Mrs. Daniel, she said her
Husband said he had a dream that
President Jonathan would lose the election.
She said it was impossible for an incumbent
president to lose a Presidential election and
pledged that if Pres. Jonathan lost, she
would trek from Minna to Abuja to
personally congratulate Pres. elect
Muhammad Buhari. She made this bet when
she was heavily pregnant with her now 40
day old daughter.
According to her, in an interview with
Newsline, she gave birth to her last child on
April 2, 2015, and that she was determined
to fulfill her promise with the win of Gen.
Buhari as the President-elect.
Mrs. Alice, told Newsline that her husband,
mother and some family members as well
as friends tried to stop her from embarking
on her journey, but that her mind was made
up to fulfill the bet she made.
When asked of the health hazard of her
mission on her and her newly born baby girl,
considering the fact that she gave birth just
barely 40 days ago, she expressed optimism
that nothing would happen to her and her
child and that the only thing she looked
forward to was for her to accomplish her
She started her journey at about 6:00am on
Sunday, from Chanchaga bridge, she said
she’s enjoying the experience so far, she
also said some motorists have offered to
assist her but she declined determined to
trek to Abuja like she said she would, she
said some people have given her money and
cheered her on.
