Businessman Obi Cubana gifts 20 ‘struggling’ classmates N2m each at reunion

Obi Cubana, the Anambra-born business mogul, has donated two million naira each to 20 of his “struggling” secondary school classmates to establish themselves.

On Friday, the socialite hosted his 1992 colleagues from Dennis Memorial Grammar School, Onitsha in Abuja.

It is understood that the reunion was organised ahead of their forthcoming 30th anniversary.

Speaking at the event, the entrepreneur, whose real name is Obi Iyiegbu, stressed the need to join hands and help the “poorest” among them.

He said to actualise this, a trust fund should be established so that those willing to support the initiative can make their donations.

“There are some of us here that are struggling. Life is not just about taking pictures and posting on Instagram. I mean, many people think that we have made it in life. People are going through hell and to the glory of God, some of us, God has actually blessed us,” he said.

“So I want to propose something tonight. I want us C92 to do something significant tonight. I want us to set up a fund that will cater, that will take care of some of our classmates who are not well to do.

“I will support this noble cause by picking up 20 people. When you identify these 20 people, 20 people from the poorest and the poor amongst us, I want to give them N2m.”

He enjoined his colleagues not to be intimidated by his donation, adding that they can also contribute whatever they can afford.

“Don’t be intimidated by anything. We are not giving because we have, but we are giving because God has enabled us to do so,” he added.
