Man treks from Lagos to Abuja to promote “wrapper marathon.”


David Adjarho, 46, today completed a 787-km walk from Lagos to Abuja to promote “wrapper marathon’’ in Nigeria. He said the exercise was to promote tourism and attract investment into such a marathon. He said wrapper marathon was aimed at

promoting the use of wrapper in marathons instead of wearing the conventional jerseys.

Adjarho, who wrapped himself in a 15-yard Ankara material, said the walk he underwent was to promote a N500m fund raiser for 5 NGOs committed to humanitarian services in Nigeria and also to witness the inauguration of Buhari.


He added that: “I have been the only man involved in wrapper marathon in the world and if embraced in Nigeria, the competition will attract revenue and investment into the tourism sector. I started this walk on May 6 from the National Stadium, Lagos and here I am now in Abuja on May 27.’’…… I settled for an Ankara material for d wrapper cuz I cldnt gt any wife material in d country, he quipped…..
