According to Tuko, Emmanuel Emenike has given back to society in a big way as the former Super Eagles striker recently completed a world class hospital in his hometown.
Despite retiring from international football in 2015, the 33-year-old forward has fulfilled his promise to the people of his home town in Imo state.
The two-story building is located along the highway which can be accessible to people to have quality health services.
In a video shared on social media, the striker who was in the company of his friends were given a tour around the hospital.
All is now set for the building to be commissioned and begin operations as well as meeting the health demands of the ordinary people.
Emenike had a brief spell with the Super Eagles between 2011 and 2015 as he scored seven goals in the famous green and white shirt.
The former Fenerbache and West Ham striker was instrumental to Nigeria’s AFCON glory in 2013 as he scored three goals in the tournament.
Emenike, who had humble beginnings also played a pivotal role in Nigeria’s qualification into the round of 16 at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
His most successful spell at club level was with Russian side Spartak Moscow where he scored 21 goals in 42 matches.
Emmanuel Emenike now joins a number of African footballers who are utilising fortunes made from football in giving back to the society.
