Bayelsa East Senator Ben Murray Bruce has danced in tune with former vice president Atiku Abubakar to accuse the presidency of trivializing governance by asking Nigerians to vote for President Muhammadu Buhari for a second term next year because he did 800m walk.

TheNewsGuru (TNG) reports President Buhari on Tuesday shunned protocol and opted to walk some 800 metres from the Eid-el-Kabir praying ground in his hometown Daura to his residence.

“Nigerians do not need a President that can walk,” Senator Bruce said in reaction, stressing “There are over 180 million Nigerians that know how to walk. Walking is not special. Walking is not a criteria for leadership. What this nation needs is a President that can work”.

Also reacting, former vice president Atiku had said jogs more than 1600 metres regularly and that he would rather work to create jobs than walk to create an illusion.

“I regularly jog more than a mile and exercise, but it will be pedestrian of me to ask Nigerians to vote for me because of that.

“I want my party – the PDP, and Nigerians, to vote for me because I work not because I walk. I will work to create jobs. I won’t walk to create an illusion,” Atiku stated.
