Isa Mohammed Munlaila has began trekking from Lagos to Abuja in protest against President Muhammadu Buhari’s second term bid.
Mr Munlaila, 28, who is carrying the colours and inscription of the All Progressives Congress on a coffin on his head, believes the 75-year-old President of the most populous country in Africa is a disappointment.
The 28-year-old who is originally from Borno State also said the APC, the political platform that brought President Buhari to power, is dead.
Speaking to journalists in Lagos, Mr Munlaila, a former Buharist who has previously walked in support of President Buhari said: “Actually, I’m here to show my disappointment with this present government of APC. I knew Buhari then, I thought he was who I knew but when he came in, I saw a different thing.

He said: “As you can see, this is the casket of APC on my head, so I’m very very angry; the youth of this country are angry. We are disappointed with this present government. This government is dead, APC is dead.

“They promised us heaven on earth, 3million jobs in a year which they could not even give us 5000 jobs in a year; they promised to return fuel to N45 per litre but it is now N145; they promised a dollar will be equal to a naira, dollar is N360-N400 now. So we say no more APC, we say no to APC again.
“I trekked during the Buhari victory to celebrate it because we thought we had a change in the government but we are disappointed. Now, I’m working to show the whole nation that we say no more APC and to apreciate those leaders that mean well for the youth.”
Mr Munlaila’s criticism comes days after President Buhari, who served as a Military Head of State in 1985, returned from vacation from the United Kingdom, where he is said to have gone for medical treatment.
The former Military General despite campaigning to end medical tourism, has been plagued by ill health and has sought treatment from abroad.
Critics have constantly called for him to declare his medical condition, but he has refused to do so.
President Buhari who announced plans to run for election in 2019, has also been criticised for failing to achieve his promise to “kill corruption” or defeat Boko Haram.
Suleiman Hashim, a man who walked from Lagos – Abuja to celebrate the defeat of the presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party in 2015, has also lambasted President Buhari.
In an interview he granted in 2016, he said: “Nigerians (who) have been hoping for a positive change for a very long time, (are) enduring hardship and now the Federal government wants to make things worse for the masses.”
