He was warmly received by Etsu Nupe, Alhaji Yahaya Abubakar, at his Wadata Palace, and the emir of Agaie, Alhaji Yusuf Nuhu.

According to Leadership,he arrived at Agaie, a distance of about 50 kilometres from Bida, where he was hosted by the Etsu Nupe and hailed by a crowd of admirers.

Also at Agaie, a crowd of admirers, including the emir of Agaie, Alhaji Yusuf Nuhu, gave the traveller a warm reception in his palace.Asked why he embarked on such a mission, Suleiman said he wanted to fulfill a promise he made two years ago.
“I made the promise for this mission to show my love for the leader of the masses, General Muhammadu Buhari, and for the 13-day journey I have embarked upon, I have condemned five pairs of canvass shoes.”
He noted that on setting out, he had made adequate financial provisions for cross-country trek, but that since the journey started, he had not spent anything from the money since he had been warmly welcomed in every town or village he had passed.
