Former Super Eagles players pay Tinubu a visit and give their endorsement for his 2023 race.
Kanu, Okocha etc were present. They also endorsed Yahaya Bello late last year.
Even Mr. Tinubu is surprised at the vigor of the prayers from Taribo West pic.twitter.com/HdvymtNlyZ

In the year 2000 when Kanu needed support for Kanu Heart Foundation.
Tinubu donated a lot of money.
If I was Kanu, I will go to that meeting too.
I cannot experience the world through other people's judgements. My experience of someone determines how I treat them in return.

How do i continue with my awareness against vote selling now when big boys like Kanu, Okocha etc all are already in the market.

Buhari selling point in 2014 was poverty and it worked on Nigerians. Tinubu selling point is to weaponize poverty. He proposed cassava and maize theory, and now he is trying to buy over celebrities and Nigeria soccer legend. I can't really blame people like Taribo West, Kanu…

I can’t even bring myself to abusing or hating Kanu, Jay Jay Okocha, Garba Lawal or Adepoju. These men have brought me so much happiness for years. Whatever political choices they make is their personal business. Other candidates should reach out to them for a visit too.

Tinubu really knows how to play his card and how to fish the elites to be on his side, but things like this shouldn't bother you if you have a mind of your own, that Kanu and Okocha is endorsing someone doesn't mean you have to do same, these guyz have nothing to lose unlike you pic.twitter.com/xPsiUNwAq4

The only useful person in that gathering of Taribo West, Kanu, Okocha, was the camera man. If not for him, how do we know the aforementioned men are of no dignity. pic.twitter.com/gUNtL9Fdbz
