Nigerian on social media have reacted with different opinions after Nigerian Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, denied asking Obi Iyiegbu, aka Obi Cubana, to loan some money to Nigeria.
Recall that reports on Friday by an online news medium claimed the Minister made the demands immediately after a star- studded burial, organized by Obi Cubana for his late mother in Idemili South local government area of Anambra State.
The burial which was tagged the richest burial in Nigeria was greeted with billionaires across the south- east who spent and sprinkled cash in huge sums.
Following the burial, the news published by the 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” .
Reactions have now trailed on social media as Lai Mohammed denied making such a demand from the business mogul, Obi Cubana.
@Olatunji Kayode said, ” This is absolute rubbish. What Nigerian politicians are stealing and hidding every minute is more than Obi’ s money. Let the politicians and our leaders borrow Nigeria money. Useless and shameless set of people. ”
@Chukwubuka Raphael said, ” A single politician in Nigeria can take care of Nigeria loan. . . But the problem be say them too mumu.
