Nigerian football legend Kanu Nwankwo, inspired by George Weah’s achievement, his Liberian counterpart, has announced that he will run for president of Nigeria in 2019. The retired football star, who once played for Arsenal, Ajax, and Inter Milan football clubs, says he had the dream to transform Nigeria. While announcing his intention to run for president, Nwankwo – the 1996 and 1999 African Player of the Year – addressed a number of his supporters. Here is his speech according to “My presence here today is about the future of our country and the happiness of our people,” the 41-year-old said. “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.” Kanu Nwankwo is hoping to be the fifth president of Nigeria.
