Former Super Eagles captain, Nwankwo Kanu has said he is not interested in running for Nigeria’s Presidency in 2019.
An Online sports website, Goal. Com had written an “ April Fools” story revealing that the former Arsenal and Inter Milan star was inspired to follow in George Weah’s footsteps to help a better life of his fellow countrymen.
But despite the article stating it was an April Fools joke, and it being written by “Loof Lirpa”, it was taken seriously by multiple media outlets who then reported on it as fact.
In a chat with Goal, Kanu is shocked at the way the April Fools quickly went from hoax to fact.
“This is meant to be a joke but people haven’t seen it that way,” he told Goal.
“I think there is a need to inform them that it is just April Fool.
“My immediate concern is using my vast contacts and experience to develop the Nigerian youth through sports.
“I also want to keep saving lives through the Kanu Heart Foundation.”
