“I know the company and have seen their contributions to both the development of the motorcycle and tricycle sector, and especially their empowerment programme for dealers, customers and riders who patronise their products.
“I have the singular honour and privilege of recommending their products— the TVS King tricycle, the HLX+ motorcycle and the Apache Power Bike— first and foremost because of their quality and as well for their after sales service policy demonstrated in their workshops spread all over Nigeria.”
Explaining why he took up the role, Kanu added that;
“They are number one and best in their areas of business and so our relationship is bound to be an interesting one. “We can jointly collaborate to do more for Nigerians, especially at this time when the country needs companies like them to support the growth Nigeria seriously need.
“I am also doing this because of their quality after-sales service as the company places a strong emphasis on empowerment, and runs specific programs targeted at women and the youth, as well as provides welfare for the mechanic and rider communities.”
“We are honoured and humbled that the legend of Nigerian football, Kanu Nwankwo, is endorsing TVS King tricycles and motorcycles, emphasising that the two-time African player of the year embodied their brand’s core values of trust, value and service
