Nwankwo Kanu: “Without Tinubu’s money, there wouldn’t have been Kanu Heart Foundation”

Mar 20, 2022

Super Eagles legend, Nwankwo Kanu, has revealed that Asiwaju Bola Tinubu’s monetary donation helped him kick start his Kanu Heart Foundation.

This was as former stars of the national team visited and praised the 2023 presidential hopeful.

In a statement released by the former Lagos state governor’s medi aide, Tunde Rahman, Kanu was quoted as saying that Tinubu donated the first seed money for that initiative in 2002.

“Without that money, there wouldn’t have been Kanu Foundation to perform the heart surgeries that have saved many lives,” Kanu said.

Since it was launched in 2000, the Kanu Heart Foundation has successfully helped 538 children of varying ages access free open heart surgeries in hospitals across the world.
