Kanu Nwankwo Declares “I will Run For Presidency in 2019”

Nigeria’s soccer star, Nwankwo Kanu aka Papillo has declared his interest in contesting the Presidential elections come 2019.

Inspired by George Weah of Liberia, Kanu, who once played for Ajax, Inter Milan, and Arsenal during his active days, maintained that the feat attained by Weah in his country, inspired him to run for Nigeria’s presidency.
During an interview with goal.com, the 41-year-old retired footballer, said he had a dream to transform the country.
His words; “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 honour 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.”
