NAIJ.com gathered that a serving corp member decided to embark on a trek from Abia state to Rivers state, in honour of the golden jubilee of the state.
Nigerians have been known to take up several things as a ‘hobby’ or even a test of strenght. Sometimes, these ‘hobbies’ raise eyebrows in question.
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?
A young man even decided to ‘trek for love‘ because he needed to prove to the woman he loved that he wanted to be more than a friend.
Fast forward to 2017, a corp member identified as @mc_dave, has also decided to embark on a long trek as well.
The corp member who is currently serving at Umuahia, Abia state, 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…

What do you think? Would you join the ‘trekkers’ anytime soon?
