In Nigeria, we suffer a lot of troubles. Erratic power supply, bad roads, corruption, fraud, devaluation of the naira, are only a few of the things we go through daily.
However, we are still proud to be Nigerians, and this is not only because we are a resilient people, but also because we have some Nigerians who are making us proud always, here they are:
1. Nwankwo Kanu
Nwankwo Kanu, was born August 1, 1976 he is a retired Nigerian footballer who played as a forward. He was a member of and later captained the Nigerian national team for 16 years from 1994 until 2010.
He is one of the most decorated Nigerian players. He has also founded the Kanu Heart Foundation.
The Kanu Heart Foundation was founded in 2000 by Kanu partly because he had a heart defect too. The primary aim of the foundation is to “put back smiles to the faces of Nigerians and Africa’s “blue children” who suffer from various heart defects.”
