Former Super Eagles and Arsenal player, Kanu Nwankwo Papilo, has denied endorsing any Presidential candidate ahead of the forthcoming 2023 presidential election.
Kanu Nwankwo said this in a video on his Instagram page on Friday night.
In the video, he said, “I’m a footballer not a politician. Whoever is there saying that I asked you to vote for who and who. No. I don’t do such. This is the last time, stop spreading fake, wicked news against Papilo.”
He captioned the video read, “Hello my country people. Do what is right and vote. Kindly stop spreading fake news in my name that I ask you to vote for anyone .
“I’m not the one to choose who you will vote for, so stop this rubbish with my name and go and get your PVC and vote.
He further threatened to deal with any person or media house that continued to spread the news.
“Any media outlet or persons or group of persons that continue to use my name to spread fake news will be dealt with in the court of law. Let’s all be guided.”
Recall that on Tuesday 24th January 2023, a popular journalist and columnist, Sam Omatseye, in a series of tweets claimed that the former Arsenal player had picked the presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, as his candidat.
