Former Arsenal Player and Two-Time African Footballer of the year Nwankwo Kanu has made his intention to run for 2019 Presidential Election.
According to Goal.com, the football legend said that he was inspired by the exploit of George Weah during the Liberia’s Presidential election. He added that he wants to restore the honour of the country.
“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.” he said
