Former Super Eagles’ captain, Joseph Yobo, has expressed his readiness to join partisan politics in the country.
The Rivers State-born former defender stated this on a popular Lagos radio station on Monday.
According to Yobo: “I’m very passionate about politics and that’s why I was at some campaign rallies to understudy a few things about Nigerian politics.
“Liberian President George Weah is a role model in this regards as he made a lot of us believe we can also contribute to nation building.
“Some of us played a big role while in the national team because you need to understand the rudiments to lead, most especially when you are the leader. You have a big role to play between the players, the coaches and the administrators as there are lots of things behind the scene.”
The ex-Everton defender however declined to reveal the elective position he is eying and when he will roll out the drums for campaign.
