Nkiru is the second child and the first daughter of Mr and Mrs Sylvanus Nwuzor from Osisioma, Aba. Her father is a policeman serving in Owerri while mother is a midwife. Beyond the sentiment that the lady is from Abia State, this appointment or nomination should be relevant in boosting the Socio-Economic welfare of the people of Imo State.

Owerri born Kanu played for the state’s top club Iwuanyanwu Nationale (now Heartland FC) before he moved to Europe to pursue a professional career.
Rochas who was a special guest of honour at the gala dinner of the Kanu testimonal, announced Kanu’s appointment.

"The Governor announced Kanu’s appointment at the gala dinner after the testimonial on Saturday," says Onyebuchi Abia, head of the Kanu Heart Foundation (KHF).
