Super Eagles skipper Nwankwo Kanu will on Monday be in the presence of the Queen of England at a reception marking the Commonwealth Day.
The reception, which will hold at Marlborough House, Pall Mall, London, comes up at 6pm (7pm Nigerian time) and will also have in attendance the Queen’s husband. Members of the diplomatic corps are expected on the occasion.
Invited at the behest of the Commonwealth Secretary-General, Mr. Kamalesh Sharma, an Indian diplomat, guests were asked to show up at the venue either in lounge suites or their national attires.
A delighted Kanu said it was a great honour to be invited to such an event, especially as it was taking place barely 48 hours after his team, Portsmouth, reached the semifinals of the FA Cup after a 2-0 home win over Blackburn Rovers on Saturday.
”It is really a great honour to be invited to such an event and I am really looking forward to it,” Kanu said.
The Commonwealth theme for this year is ‘Science, Technology and Society.‘
The Commonwealth, which is made up of former British colonies, has the Queen as its head and is made up of 54 countries.
