While reactions continue to trail the news of Senator Orji Uzor Kalu’s interest buying English Premier league club, Arsenal, Nigeria ex-international Vincent Enyeama has urged the politician and businessman to consider investing in Enyimba Football Club.

The former Governor of Abia State, Orji Uzor tweeted via @OUKtweets, earlier this week that he is considering an investment in Arsenal FC with a stake of about 35%.

He wrote: “Our success with Enyimba FC btw 2000-2007 has continuously increased my passion for football.

“As the pillar of sports in Africa,I am considering an investment in football & I will buy 35 percent stake in Arsenal FC @Arsenal.

“Our target is to lift the Champions League & EPL back to back as we did with Enyimba. #OUK.”

However, Enyeama who was the goalkeeper of Aba-based club, Enyimba at the time the senator was the Governor of Abia State thought it would be better to turn the club to a mega club as the country does not boast of any at the moment.

Enyeama who was ex-Nigerian captain shared his thought via his official tweeter account Thursday afternoon while commenting on the story shared by @FastTrackNaija

Orji Uzor in his tweet also admitted that Enyimba was successful and the feat achieved between 2000-2007 increased his passion for the game of football. He served as the Governor of Abia State, Nigeria from 29 May 1999 to 29 May 2007.

His tweet read:
“Our success with Enyimba FC btw 2000-2007 has continuously increased my passion for football. As the pillar of sports in Africa, I am considering an investment in football & I will buy 35 percent stake in Arsenal FC @Arsenal. Our target is to lift the Champions League & EPL…”

“and valuable investment as well . Doing what you love and loving it is where greatness lies . I need 35% of Arsenal to bring back trophies. #OUK#Arsenal#TuesdayThoughts”

“commercialized. With Arsenal @Arsenal we will make Enyimba become great again with the strategic partnership we are packaging.We shall turn it around to create a platform for more of our professional players seeking for international exposure A win-win outing for all parties &…”

“As a young man,I embraced business before I walked into politics.I found greatness in trading before the call to serve beckoned. The records out there are evidently confirming this position. I see opportunities & never afraid to make them possibilities. This was richly applied.”
