2019: Kanu Joins Presidential Race
Former Super Eagles captain, Nwankwo Kanu, has announced that he will run for the president of Nigeria in 2019.
Kanu made his intention Kwown while addressing a number of his supporters.
According to him, George Weah’s victory in Liberia is a pointer that his dream is very realistic with his supporters on his side.
The 41-year-old ex football star vowed to do all it takes to wrestle corruption which has become blatant and widespread, saying “the rest of the world looks at Nigeria as the home of corruption.”
“The last 18 years of leadership has witnessed a decline in all critical sectors of life in Nigeria, plus general insecurity in the land.
“If I get your mandate, I promise to do things differently and restore honour and integrity to public service by keeping the best and attracting the best,” Kanu said.
