On August 23, 2018, Munlaila, clad in a black T-Shirt and carrying a box painted in what seemed like the colours of the All Progressives Congress (APC) flag — green, white, blue and red — had stated that he was embarking on a trek from Lagos to Abuja to protest against the re-election bid of President Muhammadu
It is not clear if he actually completed the trek, but according to Kola Ologbondiyan, PDP’s National Publicity Secretary, Munlaila has joined the party.
A tweet via Ologbondiyan read: “After being deceived by series of promises made by @MBuhari &the @OfficialAPCNg, the man who trekked to Abuja from Lagos in support of Buhari has returned to say the APC is dead!! He has also declared his support for our great party @OfficialPDPNig. Brave guy!!”
