"Where Was Everybody When Rashidi Yekini Needed Help"-Kanu Nwankwo



       Former Super Eagles captain, kanu nwankwo has expressed his sadness over the sudden death of ex-Nigerian striker and former african footballer of the year Rashidi Yekini .While talking to newmen  ,Kanu  tasked Nigerians to strive to honour their heroes when they are still alive instead of crying ‘out their eyes’ and making eulogies at their death.
    Kanu who said he was still in shock over the death of former Nigeria international, Rashidi Yekini. asked, “where was everybody when the man needed help?
   Kanu continued ,"Yekini was a dedicated player with a good heart; he was someone who wanted to give back to the society. I think it’s always good to remember and honour people when they are alive than wait until they die. Yekini should have been celebrated when he was alive"Those who gave everything in the service of their country must be accorded the desired attention at all times. Yekini suffered and died like an orphan. Today, everybody is lamenting over his death. Nobody cared for him while he was alive and suffering,”
     Kanu  said he was sad at the death of Yekini whom he said was their source of  inspiration as young players in the national team.Although one does not pray for such things to happen. The question is, today it is Yekini, who’ll be next?

  3. Where were you too? You people should learn to be your brother's keeper. You as a co footballer surpose to be the first to know of his ill health before anybody out side. The truth must be said my brother, may God have mercy and teach us to be our brother's keeper.

  11. Kanu, I want to believe that uve forgotten the Nigerian system so quick. Where were u when this boxer that won medals for Nigeria had to sleep at Bus stop when he ran out of money to pay his HOTEL BILLS, in an attempt to see one of the officials at the sport house in ABJ.
