The former Arsenal star who is an indigene of the state, has been contributed a lot to the development of sports in the state and his appointment, according to sources, is well deserved.
The announcement of the 1996 Olympic Gold medal winner was contained in a statement signed by the New Media aide to the governor, Izuchukwu Akwarandu, who said the appointment of Papilo as Kanu is fondly called, was well-deserved.

Papilo, as fondly called by his fans, came to present his most recent CAF award, which was given to him at the just concluded Nations Cup in Egypt, to the sports-loving governor of Imo State. The star also presented a branded jersey to the governor.
