In his part, Okocha lauded Tinubu particularly for his achievements in Lagos, noting that the former Lagos governor is the reason he usually calls Lagos home.

Nwankwo, who instituted the Kanu Heart Foundation, disclosed that the first seed money for that initiative was donated by Tinubu in 2002.

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

Pastor Taribo West prayed that Nigeria be blessed with more kind-hearted people like Tinubu while wishing him well in the presidential race.
