Ooni, Olubadan back Kanu Heart Foundation

Two paramount rulers  from the South West geopolitical zone  of Nigeria, His Imperial Majesty Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi (Ojaja II) and the Ooni of  Ile Ife as well as the  Olubadan of Ibadan and Aje Ogungunniso 1, Oba Saliu Adetunji  have both pledged an unalloyed support to the Kanu Heart Foundation(KHF).
This much was the assurance from the two monarchs following a courtesy call by Ambassador Nwankwo Kanu in his drive to further seek support for the 18-year-old foundation that has assisted hundreds of children with heart related problems.
“ I’m so happy that the Ooni of Ife has gladly accepted to be the grand patron of  Kanu Heart Foundation my  courtesy call on him  at his palace  on Monday,” explained the former Super Eagles captain and Arsenal forward.“ This is no doubt a big achievement for KHF and I’m so happy that Oba Ogunwusi has pledged to support our charity  projects. I’m so happy.”
 *Kanu used the occasion of his visit to present branded Super  Eagles’ shirt to the Ooni  as well as the first jersey to be made for the forthcoming Ojaja Principal Cup  to be competed for by secondary scool students in Ile-Ife and its environs.
Meanwhile, on his way back from Ile-Ife, Kanu also made a whistle stop in Ibadan to also enlist the support of the Olubadan and the Atlanta’96 Soccer Gold medal-winning captain of the national U-23 side described the occasion as a dream comes true.
 He said: “ It was like using one stone to kill a bird  for KHF because after meeting Oni in Ile-Ife, I was also with the Olubadan and I’m happy with the warm reception we also received  in Ibadan and to have the endorsement of these two important traditional rulers for KHF is a big boost for us.
“ We are still going to reach out to other notable traditional rulers so that they too can support the good job we are doing at the KHF.”
