Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa, was hiked by a Tanzanian supporter of Nigeria’s Labour Party (LP), who goes by Gersh. He climbed the mountain for ten and a half hours to plant the party’s flag at the summit of the hill at Uhuru Peak.
On Fri, 20/10/2022 after 10½ hrs of climbing, hiking and trekking, I made it to the Uhuru Peak of Mount Kilimanjaro, 5,895m above sea level. There is no better place to announce the coming of a New Nigeria than the Rooftop of Africa. @NGRLabourParty @firstladyship @ObiDientTvHQ pic.twitter.com/Q8hV9ZVt7c

The summit, named Uhuru Peak, is the highest point in Africa and the highest point in the mountain range.
On Tuesday, OGersh uploaded a video and photo of himself standing next to a Labour Party banner at Uhuru Peak.
“I’m doing this, and it took me a lot of agonies,” he says in the video. To get here, I had to take some chances. It is approximately 9:30 in the afternoon, and I started hiking up Kilimanjaro at 11 last night. This is the sacrifice I make, the item I give up so that Nigeria can start over. I don’t want what’s occurring in Nigeria to be the norm for my kids and grandkids.
After he climbed and put the flag in place, he wrote: “On Friday, October 20, 2022, after 10 and a half hours of climbing, hiking, and trekking, I made it to the Uhuru Peak of Mount Kilimanjaro, which is 5,895 metres above sea level. On the roof of Africa, we will proclaim the arrival of the New Nigeria.
