    I see nothing wrong with it. Do we still remember the ice bucket challenge, only a while back, which our celebrities happily embraced, for ALS (a disease which if you ask them about, they probably know nothing of.) If people want to show their support for a politician, who am I to criticize, after all it is their legs and no one is being defrauded.

      The Ice Bucket Challenge was to raise awareness and money for the disease. And the cause raised millions of dollars because everyone that did the challenge was to donate a minimum of $10 and get to challenge three other people to repeat the process, if you didn’t meet your dead line you had to donate $100. This trekking craze has no point to it other than attention for no particular reason. Yes they have the right to and are not breaking any laws by doing so, but people also have to right to criticize it. A husband and a father of two with another on the way should be home and working to provide for his family, not walking around with female companions and posting pictures online.

    why do many of u like to mixed things up, things u know nothing about.
    the als ice bucket challenge was a fun way to raise awareness and money for als disease. the als ice bucket challenge has raised more than 5 million dollars and has enlightened many about the disease that is als. nigerian celebs started doing the ice bucket challenge cause they are dumb (toke and co.) and they like to copy to look cool.

    trekking for gej, what is it going to do for humanity? trekking for buhari or whatever governor who won their election, what is it going to do for humanity. u are trekking to congratulate a failure who made life difficult and painful for many. no light for how many days now and u are trekking to congratulate that mumu called gej. are u well at

    that guy trekking to congratulate gej, lets us ask him,how did gej administration impact on his life when he was in office? *crickets* that’s all we would hear.

    no single achievement gej has. only to be giving abacha medal (yes it is paining me) and granting criminals pardon. wasting money here and there. fight boko haram, u can not fight
    give us light, for where.
    what of petrol, if I hear.
    so what are u congratulating gej for?

      i agree with some things you said Bruno but some of you are so stupid for blaming GEJ for the problems that have been there even before he was made a dep.governor. the same heroes you people are celebrating are behind Bokoharam.the same people swore to make it ungovernable for him and they kept to their promise. he has done a lot but it’s just the Boko haram issue that overshadowed his administration. let us see the magic Buhari will perform.
      you bellanaija worrier Bruno,what have you done to help our country the little way u can?by being a fag abi?

    I wish the trekking trend were for more meaningful causes like the high youth unemployment rate or even light sef. Trekking just to honor someone whether Buhari or GEJ is just another way of kissing ass, that’s not going to make a big difference other than maybe lining your pocket with a few change.

    If different people all over Nigeria were to band together and start trekking from various parts of the country to the same destination – maybe Abuja – for something meaningful, then that will get my attention; it might even get the attention of the incoming government sef. In fact if they can challenge the new government to act on their cause, or motivate non-trekkers to do something meaningful in their own way, then the trekking can easily become OUR authentic version of the ALS challenge

    Lmao! Now this is how comedians should ‘weight in’ on such issues….hehehe!

    Nigerian comedians don’t know how to be funny….they either go all philosophical (as if they became popular cos of their words of wisdom), e.g. Ali Baba, or they are just outrightly inappropriate….this right here is a happy medium….sweet!

    Dont think Bovi criticized it just thinks he just cracked a joke!

    As for many others criticizing GEJ and blaming him for your failure in WAEC , wait a minute if you did not have opportunity in the past 16 years as an adult Nigerian,you have not only been lazy but …….

    In the past 16 years Nigerians have progressed in nearly all legitimate field, comedy,MC Compere ,Clothing and designing,cream making,music,dancing,bouncing,bloggers,vloggers, food makers,recharge card dealers,BDC,bead making,soap making,party making,D.J ,film making,sophisticated refuse removal, exportation,piggery,snaring, general farming alot and so many lots.

    Banks have built more branches which translates to employ more people due to favorable economic policies SME etc, Insurances have done same,Micro Finances sprang up in hundreds including in the villages, We can assemble cars and yet some people found nothing to do at allllllll???????

    A lazy fellow who sits here and blame GEJ for his personal failures will be poor even if David Cameron+Obama+late Lee kuan Yew+late Mandela put together preside over Nigeria.

    The best,the best president can do for you is put you on welfare which you will still complain.

    Please get a life you critics GEJ is not responsible for a secondary school friend of mine who has refused to get up,go out,search for and get a job rather she shout NO JOB in Nigeria while on a stationary seat.

    The lazy ones are left behind. Word of my father.

    Or better still wait and let Buhari send you a personal letter of employment for a job awaiting you from May 29th mtcheww.

    Bovi and Omotola in their lives have had reasons to trek for Nigeria and they never did. Even more recently the GIN CONTAMINATION in her state Ondo she did not trek nor create any awareness!

    These critics didn’t trek on Boko Haram,Cholera,HIV ,POLIO that GEJ,OBJ and Peaceful Yaradua nailed,Lead poisoning and just now they are calling peaceful vibrant Nigerian youth silly! Omotola i would have personally lead to make your career miserable just that i was your biggest fan. Please stitch your mouth Nigerian youth are not SILLY!

      Omotola said”silly” Trekkers not Nigerian youths. Go back to school if you have challenges reading or understanding. Are you a trekker? Them you’re one of the silly people a lot of us agree you are! Use your tiny influence (if you have any) to better your case. That’s what she was trying to pass a cross not to celebrate politicians that have not deserved your praise! Never was a Nollywood fan but for the first time I can proudly say I am an Omotola fan! A hero in this messed up generation.

      @Nene : You sound so delusional to me. You were Omotola’s biggest fan? and you typed those words.? Think about it. Someone woke up one morning to trek for GEJ and for a peaceful nation? How does that make sense?

      Omotola said the right thing and only a sensible human being would know that these guys are only looking for cheap publicity. Now they follow the First 50 or 500 people that retweet their tweet. is that not pathetic enough.

      You said

      “Omotola i would have personally lead to make your career miserable just that i was your biggest fan”

      You want to make someones Career miserable , yet you come on bella naija to say it out loud?
      You should be ashamed of yourself…. Do you know how Omotola as a young lady has worked on her self, her family, her personality over the years? I dare you to do the same before thinking of bringing her down (which you don’t even have the power to do cos you’re not GOD)

      Internet in the hands of senseless being..

    Mbok, are they trekking with your legs? Lets learn to respect people’s decisions irrespective of how silly, immature or whAtever else we think … Live and let live oooo. Social media is fast becoming no 1 depressant. Thanks to all the faceless bunch that are always negative and giving an opinion abt what others will be better of doing. Y’all seem to knw what is best for every one except urselves…

    @nene+, a whole lot of rubbish is what you just typed. Makes no iota of sense.

    May 16, 2015 at 1:26 pm

    I still don’t get it, are some people singing praises for these jobless trekkers. What on earth is wrong with us-Nigerian Youth. Somebody please ask them, Why are they trekking? You mean someone that is busy or has a job, will leave his work and trek for a month or so.
    We need to stop been silly and be serious. There’s no need for the trekking and that’s the truth.

    Come May 29, this trekking must be over and will start making contribution to the govt. Simple maintenance of public facilities by it citizens is big no and the govt is influencing matters. E.g, imagine someone dropping his blocks and other building materials on fairly good tarred road thereby blocking half of the roadway. Naija, this Change must start with us. If I talk, they will looking for the papa to kill.

    The trekking trend is getting old abeg….

    ***I heard one gist few days ago that really upset me. It’s the kinda story I like to refer to as ‘dirty gist’.

    So less than two years ago this dude married a chic he had been dating for over two years.
    The girl’s family which consists of father, mother, two brothers and a sister live in a self contained apartment in a semi congested compound. They often have fall-outs with the landlord over petty issues.

    One afternoon, it was learned that the landlord came out and saw a pool of water in one part of the compound, he enquired who had poured water there and was told it was one of the sons of his troublesome tenant……click my name to read more and share your thoughts.

If the only thing yhu can do is too sit down and criticize one of the best govt on earth then yhu are daft! Why can’t yhu just for once respect people opinion ! He knows why his trekking ! And I also think someone like Gej deserves a trek! And the only thing yhu can use in criticizing gej govt is boko haram! Which sadist like yhu had plan ! Common bro wise up!

    y’al calling out Bruno,
    pls when these people were elected, didn’t they make promises?
    who forced it out of them?
    and you come here to say we have had problems before GEJ’s tenure.
    look at other developed countries that their systems and government are working well, it took one government to put things in order. one govt who did not want to make it no performance a trend to rise up and make things work.
    people like you guys are the major problem Nigeria has, because you will never hold people accountable for their failures.
    so because Nigeria has always had problems does it mean all our leaders are now excused and are liable to mis manage our funds?
    pls allow Bruno to express his dis satisfaction.
