I’m Not Interested In Politics – Kanu Nwankwo

A former Arsenal star, Kanu Nwankwo is stunned at how the Nigerian media reacted to a hoax that claimed he was planning on running for Nigeria’s presidency in 2019.

Goal.com wrote an ‘April Fools’ article revealing that the former Super Eagle was inspired to follow in George Weah’s footsteps to help provide a better life for his fellow countrymen.

But despite the article stating it was an April Fools joke, and it is written by “Loof Lirpa”, it was taken seriously by multiple media outlets who then reported on it as fact.

In a chat with Goal.com, 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.com.

“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.”
