Ex-Super Eagles players and Kanu Heart Foundation visited the National Leader of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Bola Ahmed Tinubu at his Bourdillon residence in Lagos today.
The visit was a prelude to a novelty match the former football stars organized to honour Tinubu on his 70th birthday.
The match is scheduled for tomorrow, Sunday, by 2pm at Onikan Stadium, Lagos.
The Ex-Super Eagles stars, including Austin J.J Okocha, also presented the presidential hopeful with an award.
Tinubu said, “The beautiful game of football is one sport that unites Nigerians of all walks of life – regardless of their age, status, tribe or religion.
Today, I was privileged to receive some former players of our National Football team, the Super Eagles led by the prodigious Jay-Jay Okocha and highly decorated Kanu Nwankwo.
I thanked them for their service to country and they shared with me, their plans towards the novelty football match being organised to celebrate my birthday in a few days. We also spoke extensively about Nigeria’s upcoming qualifiers for the World Cup at Qatar.
Together, we will soar like eagles. That’s my prayer for Nigeria”

He asked his God to arrest the 4 corners of this Nation so that Tinubu’s movement could be established.
