The Season of Trekking – Emmanuel Eke



A number of Nigerians have embarked on several hundreds of kilometer trekking in honour of President -elect, Gen Muhammadu Buhari and the outgoing president, Goodluck Ebele Jonathan. Quite commendable.

The first trekker came from Lagos to Abuja. Another is on his way from Yola to Abuja, yet another is on his way from Abuja to Otueke Bayelsa State to welcome President Jonathan as he arrives home after the presidential inaugurals. Again, another is said to be trekking with 7 cows as gift for president Jonathan for the almajiri schools he built all over the north.

I’ve decided to add my own input for the love and statesmanship displayed by president Jonathan after the elections. I will therefore, starting from tomorrow, the 6th of May 2015 begin to read the Holy Bible from Genesis to Revelation. It will take me time but it is a task I will sure accomplish. After all, Denzel Washington did it!
