Ex-Nigeria internationals have arrived in Kano to kick off the Tinubu-Shettima presidential campaign tour which will take place at the Sani Abacha Stadium in Kano.

More than 27 former Super Eagles including Daniel Amokachi, Peter Rufai, Victor Ikpeba, Julius Aghahowa, Mutiu Adepoju and Emmanuel Babayaro arrived on Friday ahead of the event on Saturday.

They were welcomed by the former Majority Leader in the Kano State House of Assembly, Baffa Agundi.

According to a statement by the Tinubu Support Group, Agundi expressed delight at their arrival and promised to make their stay in the state memorable as they embark on the tour in support of the presidential candidate of the ruling All Progressives Congress, Bola Tinubu, and his running mate, Senator Kashim Shettima.

Agudi described the players as one of the best things to happen to the country, as they brought joy to every home in Nigeria during their playing days.

President Muhammadu Buhari, who is currently in Daura, Katsina, is expected at the event.
