Footballer Kanu Nwankwo addresses reports of endorsing Tinubu (Video)

Kanu Nwankwo, a former professional footballer in Nigeria, has finally responded to reports that he endorsed APC presidential candidate Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

According to Kemi Filani, columnist Sam Omatseye claimed that the former footballer was a supporter of the presidential candidate.

Sam Omatseye explained why Kanu Nwankwo was endorsing Tinubu in a series of tweets. Kanu, he claims, sought support from Peter Obi and other Igbo leaders when he wanted to start his foundation, but they turned him down. When he approached Tinubu, he came to the Sheraton Hotels in Abuja and gave him 5 million naira.

“In year 2020, I wanted to start Kanu Heart Foundation.
Peter Obi and all the Igbo Leaders refused to Help me. I reached out to Tinubu, he came to Sheraton Hotels, Abuja and gave me 5million Nara.

That money was what I used in starting the foundation you hear today”.

The columnist captioned the tweet with, “Kanu Nwankwo explains why Tinubu is his candidate”.

Kanu responded in a video on his Instagram page, explaining that the news was false because he does not support any politician. He warned journalists not to spread false information about him because he is a footballer, not a politician.

He urged his fans in his final message to go get their PVC and vote for the best.

“My country people. I said and I will say it again. I am not a politician, I am a footballer. Whoever is there is just spreading fake news about me that I asked you to go vote for who and who. Al my life is about football.

This is the last time. Stop spreading fake news against Papilo. I am here to help people and not to destroy what you can’t destroy. Go get your PVC and vote for the best”, he said in the video.
