 Kanu Nwankwo Joins Presidential Race
By Dansu Peter

Like his Liberian counterpart, George Weah, a former Nigerian Football legend, Kanu Nwankwo has joined the Presidential race to occupy the Aso rock powerhouse.

The two-time African Player of the Year, declared his intention to run for the Presidency in 2019.

According to Goal.com, a sports website claimed that the former Arsenal player said he wants to become Nigeria’s president to restore honor to the country.

He said: “My presence here today is about the future of our country and the happiness of our people.

“The last 18 years of leadership has witnessed a decline in all critical sectors of life in Nigeria, plus general insecurity in the land.

“Also, I’ll do all it takes to wrestle corruption which has become blatant and widespread. The rest of the world looks at Nigeria as the home of corruption.


“If I get your mandate, I promise to do things differently and restore honor and integrity to public service by keeping the best and attracting the best.

“George Weah’s victory in Liberia is a pointer that this dream is very realistic with you all on my side."

The salient question is, would Nigerians toe the same path as Liberian to elect a football legend as President?
