A presidential aspirant, under the platform of the African Action Congress, AAC, Omoyele Sowore has berated former Super Eagles players for paying a visit to a former Lagos State Governor and National Leader of the All Progressives Congress, APC, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Sowore, in a post on his verified social media accounts, described the senior players’ visit to Tinubu, who is pursuing the APC’s presidential ticket, as one “driven by hunger.”

On Saturday, the former Super Eagles players met with Tinubu at his home, ahead of the novelty football match scheduled for Sunday at Onikan Stadium in Lagos State.

Kanu Nwakwo, Jay-Jay Okocha, Taribo West, and Victor Ikpeba were among the ex-internationals who visited Tinubu’s home.

The ex-Super Eagles players will take part in a novelty match to mark Tinubu’s 70th birthday.

The novelty match is expected to feature 17 former Nigerian internationals.

Sowore said, “Hunger is a bastard! JJ Okocha, Kanu Nwankwo, Victor Ikpeba, Taribo West, and other ex-Super Eagles players paid Tinubu a visit today to endorse him.

“I used to think Victor Ikpeba was a smart person! Shame on these ex-soccer Super Eagles players! Imagine sending them to play for Nigeria as a team in the World Cup after they’ve expired?

    They are 10 times richer than the useless Omoyele Sowore, I didn’t expect him of all people to accuse people wrongly without a concrete evidence after all the hide and seek game he played with the APC in 2015. They did same with Obasanjo this year and nobody called it an endorsement. Tinubu is extremely useless, we all know that, he thinks his bloody money can buy everything but we dont need a Sowore as an amplifier in this case.
