He recently had an exclusive Instagram live interview with Legit.ng where he spoke on many things from how he started his football career before playing for the Super Eagles.
And when the former Premier League star was asked to explain why he is being called 'The Governor' by Nigerians and also in many part of the world, he revealed that Wilfred Ndidi gave him the name.
Musa stated that Wilfred Ndidi was impressed with the photos he saw where him and Shehu Abdullahi gave the less privileged some valuable things before the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
''It was Wilfred Ndidi who gave me the name Governor because he was impressed with what I did for people before the World Cup and that was how people started calling me that,'' Musa told Legit.ng exclusively.
The former Leicester City star also explained that he has no ambition of going into politics after leaving football.

Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how Ahmed Musa finally explained how himself, Mikel Obi, Elderson Echiejile and Emmanuel Emenike went to beg former Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh after he collected the armband from Vincent Enyeama in 2015.
Former Super Eagles goalkeeper Vincent Enyeama had issues with Sunday Oliseh five years ago in the Super Eagles which forced the legendary goalkeeper out of the team.
The issues then made Sunday Oliseh to take the captain armband from Vincent Enyeama and gave it to Ahmed Musa in what was a controversial situation.
Musa who played with Vincent Enyeama in two World Cup has now stated exclusively to Legit.ng that Super Eagles players are still missing Enyeama, adding that he and some senior players went to beg Oliseh but their plea fell on deaf ears.
