One of the 2019 presidential aspirants for Nigeria, Kingsley Moghalu, has narrated how he received favour ‘somewhere in the world’ just because he is Nigerian.
Moghalu’s tale could be branded ‘unusual’ as stories that filtered in are of Nigerians reportedly being treated otherwise in the outside world.
According to Moghalu, he had visited a mailbox service shop owned by Egyptians, although he did not mention the location of the facility.
He stated that immediately the attendants knew he is Nigerian, they went haywire. He explained in his tweet how the Egyptians expressed passion for Nigerian football.
They were particularly fond of former Super Eagles stars, Emmanuel Amuneke and striker Rashidi Yekini.
Moghalu further stated that when it was time to pay for the services, he was simply asked to ‘go in peace’.
He wrote on Twitter:
“(I) just left a mailbox service shop owned by Egyptians somewhere in the world.
“When they learnt I'm Nigerian it was all over! They love Nigeria and our soccer, with former players Emmanuel Amuneke and Rashidi Yekini at the top of their list. Time to pay. "Brother, no pay, go in peace"
Meanwhile, a photo of Super Eagles legends Kanu Nwankwo and Taribo West recently made the rounds on the internet showing the duo together after they played for Italian giants Inter Milan during their days.
In 1996, African footballer of the year, Kanu Nwankwo, joined Inter from Ajax Amsterdam for around $4.7 million.
Taribo West was transferred to Italian side Inter on a four-year deal from French side Auxerre.
On his debut season, he alongside the likes of Ronaldo Nazario de Lima as well as Ivan Zamorano won the UEFA Super Cup.
Taribo featured in 44 Serie A matches for the Nerazzurri, scoring one goal before he later joined rivals AC Milan in 2000.
Legit.ng previously reported that it was a star-studded relaxation as Super Eagles legend Austin Okocha was spotted alongside ex-teammates Nwankwo Kanu and Daniel Amokachi in a lounge.
Ex-internationals Tijani Babangida, as well as Austin Eguavoen, were seen in the video as they look to be ‘cooking up something’ from their discussion.
They were all part of the Nigerian squad that prosecuted the 1994 World Cup in the USA for the Super Eagles, a team that is still referred to as the Golden Generation.
