The news which was published by an online new medium(Not Newsie Events) that the Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed had asked Obi Iyiegbu, aka Obi Cubana to loan money to Nigeria has been debunked by the Minister.
On the verified Facebook page of the Ministry of Information and Culture on Sunday, the news item claiming that Lai Mohammed made the statement was placed a ‘Fake News’ stamp on.
The news 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”.
Obi Cubana, who is a billionaire nightclub owner, has been trending on social media for days, after hosting a lavish funeral for his mother in Oba, a town in Idemili South local government area of Anambra State.
The ‘naira rain’ at the event has led to several memes asking Nigeria to borrow money from Obi Cubana instead of China.
The country’s debt has risen by N20.8tn to N32.92tn since President Muhammadu Buhari took over.
