2-time African player of the year, Mr Kanu Nwankwo has announced his intention to run for presidency in 2019.
Kanu who retired in 2012 said he plans to transform Nigeria into the best country to live in the world.
Here is what the 41-year-old said while announcing his intention:
“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.”
If his dream come true, he will be the first football to rule Africa’s most populous nation.
