Lai Mohammed, minister of Information and Culture, has rubbished the report which claimed he asked Obi Iyiegbu aka Obi Cubana, group chairman, Cubana to loan money to Nigeria.
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”.
The social media has been awash with the trending lavish funeral organised by Obi Cubana for his mother in Oba, Anambra State.
The unprecedented naira rain at the funeral left many mouths wagging and wondering why Federal government would not approach Cubana for loan rather than going offshore with higher interest and burden.
However, the Ministry of Information and Culture on its verified Facebook page on Sunday placed a ‘Fake News’ stamp on the report.
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 talking points with several memes asking Nigeria to borrow money from Obi Cubana instead of China.
