A graduate of Psychology at the Imo State University, Uche Dubem Ohakwe, who rode a bicycle from Owerri to Abuja in support of former Vice President Atiku Abubakar’s presidential ambition, has been hospitalised at the National Hospital in Abuja.
Mr. Ohakwe, who arrived Abuja last week after riding the bicycle for six days, said he went to urinate but suddenly had a shock in his head which led to his state of coma.
“When I woke up I found myself in the hospital; the National Hospital. Series of tests were conducted and at the end of the day my BP was about 300. But now I am getting okay,” he said.
He said he was one of the Nigerian youths that had benefited from the scholarship scheme sponsored by Atiku, WuzupNaija writes.
“I did not do this for money, if it is for money, I know how and where to get it. So this is a call to all Nigerians, especially the electorate not to make another mistake,” he said.
In an earlier interview, Ohakwe who was dressed in a red shirt branded ” Atimulated” at the front, “Atiku’s Disciple” at the back made it known that he started the six-day journey from Shoprite, Owerri on 13 October at 7 am.
“It took me six days to ride a bicycle from Owerri down to Abuja, I left Owerri Shoprite at 7am last Saturday. In a day I cover like six to seven hours, I started riding from ShopRite, IMO state then I passed the night at Enugu. Then I stopped at Kogi, at Kogi state because of the hill and the size two days there,” he said.
“I also performed evangelism, I started telling people about Atiku Abubakar. I took the message hope 2019 that is Atiku Abubakar to market women, mosques and churches. Then I continued my journey from Lokoja, then to Gwagbwalada to Abuja. Good Nigerians showed me the road, and I also made use of google map”, he added.
Ohakwe, who was previously resident in South Korea and Ghana, expressed belief that the Atiku/Obi team will be unbeatable in bringing Nigeria out of the woods.
