Who can forget when it was a common thing for people who were ‘trekking in support’ of presidential candidates during the 2015 general elections held in Nigeria? Well, an NYSC member has taken the trend.
A serving National Youth Service corps member, has decided to embark on a trek from Abia state to Rivers state, in honour of the golden jubilee of the state.
The corps member identified with his Instagram as @mc_dave, who is currently serving at Umuahia, Abia state, said he decided to trek all the way from his place of primary assignment to Port Harcourt, Rivers state.
He claims he is embarking on the trek as a means of celebrating his state’s golden jubilee and the completion of his service year.
Announcing his move via Instagram, he wrote: “What will you do to celebrate greatness? How far will you go to appreciate development and growth? What risk will you take to sing about the good culture and values of Rivers State?
“My name is Mc Dave and I wish to let every Rivers man and indeed the world be on the know that, in my own way of celebrating the golden jubilee of Rivers state and my passing out from service as a corps member, I’ll do a long distance walk from Umuahia the capital of Abia which is my state of primary assignment to Port Harcourt, The heartbeat of Rivers State… #iwaka4Rivers #riversat50 #portharcourttotheworld.”
