Over 27 former Super Eagles legends have arrived in Kano to kick off the Tinubu/Shettima Presidential Campaign Tour, which will take place at the Sani Abacha Stadium Kano.
Honourable Baffa Baba Dan Agundi welcomed the players.
Addressing the media briefly after receiving the players, the politician expressed delight at the development and promised to make their stay in the state memorable as they embark on a National Presidential Campaign Tour in support of Senator Bola Ahmed Tinubu and his running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima.
Agundi described the legends as one of the best things to happen to the country, as they brought joy to every home in Nigeria during their playing days, and football remains the world’s most uniting tool.
In March 2022, the legends celebrated Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s 70th birthday in Lagos, using the occasion to declare their support for the presidential candidate.
Over 27 former Super Eagles legends, including Daniel Amokachi, Peter Rufai, Victor Ikpeba, Julius Aghahowa, Mutiu Adepoju, Emmanuel Babayaro, and others, have already arrived in Kano for the flag-off.
