Governor of the state of Osun, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola made a surprising revelation on Wednesday, saying he became an Arsenal fan because of former Super Eagles player, Kanu Nwankwo.
He made this known when he retweeted a post by his media aide, a few hours ago.
Aregbesola shared a photo of himself with the former Arsenal striker and said that he had been a fan of Arsenal since the days of Kanu at the club and has not stopped being a fan.
He wrote, “Football is a love language spoken worldwide. A true Gooner meets a legendary @Arsenal player.
“I became an Arsenal fan because of you and I have remained a Gooner ever since.”
Kanu replied by thanking the governor for the love.
“Thanks, I appreciate and nice to meet you. God bless you,” he tweeted.
