Former Nigerian footballer Kanu Nwankwo explained the reasons for his participation in the activity organized to celebrate the 70th birthday of the national leader of All Progressive Congress, Bola Tinubu.
Kanu and other players’ visit to Tinubu on Saturday sparked a backlash on social media.
” Kanu addressed the matter by saying, “Please pay attention as people are speaking. I am not a politician; I am a renowned football player. I play football with pride. I am conscious of good and wrong.
“22 years ago, the Kanu Heart Foundation was in need of assistance. Only three governors were appointed, and Ahmed Tinubu was one of them.
“He provided startup funding for the foundation. He helped us. His 70th birthday has just passed. Why not? He deserves our aid as well.
