The Federal Government has dismissed the report which claimed that Lai Mohammed asked Cubana Group Chairman, Obi Iyiegbu aka Obi Cubana, to loan money to Nigeria.
Africa Today News, New York understands that the news which was published by an online medium read in part;
‘Obi Cubana has this kind of money and Nigeria is borrowing money from China. Cubana should borrow us money, Nigeria is collapsing- Lai Mohammed’.
However, the Ministry of Information and Culture on its verified Facebook page yesterday placed a ‘Fake News’ stamp on the report while condemning it in its entirety.
Africa Today News, New York gathered that Obi Cubana has been trending on social media for the last four days for hosting a lavish funeral for his mother.
The funeral, in Oba, a town in Idemili South local government area of Anambra State, was attended by businessmen, politicians, musicians, and actors.
The ‘naira rain’ at the event has generated loads of taking points with several memes asking Nigeria to borrow money from Obi Cubana instead of China.
