Nigerians on social media have praised Super Eagles captain Ahmed Musa for donating N2 million to the 1996 Olympic gold medalist, Kingsley Obiekwu.
The former Nigerian International who is a member of the Atlanta ’96 Olympics Gold medal-winning Dream Team had recently opened up on his financial struggles, especially how he uses his only car for commercial transport to sustain his family.
The 47-year-old former defender fondly referred to as “Shagari”, played for Rangers International FC, Enugu, and Udoji United.
While confirming the donation, several associates of the former CSKA Moscow forward announced the development on Twitter.
Musa also liked several posts where his latest kind gesture was shared.
“Super Eagles captain, Ahmed Musa has donated N2 million to support 1996 Olympic Gold Medalist, Kingsley Obiekwu, one of the posts reads.
Obiekwu was reported to be working as a driver in Enugu. Obiekwu has confirmed the alert & cash support from Musa.”
Praising the philanthropic gestures of Musa, many Nigerians commended him for his generosity and kind-hearted spirit.
Investigative Journalist Fisayo Soyombo tweeted: “Thank you, Ahmed Musa, for that N2million donation to Kingsley Obiekwu!
“But more thanks to Okwuluora, the broadcast journalist without whom we wouldn’t have known Obiekwu’s sordid condition.”
