Asiwaju Ahmed Tinubu has reportedly donated a whopping sum of $30,000 for the burial of Moji Olaiya.
An insider revealed that Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu released the equivalent of N11.4 million towards the ferrying of the corpse of Moji Olaiya from Canada to Nigeria, among other expenses.
The National leader of All Progressives Congress donated the sum on Monday, May 22, 2017, when he met with family members of the star actress, her daughter and burial committee members.
One of the committee members inadvertently mentioned the figure today.
“I may be wrong, Asiwaju who promised the committee $40k on Saturday changed it to $30k by Monday. Perhaps he had been fed Gov Ayo Fayose had helped. Meanwhile, the committee had thought they will use the excess to pay Adun’s school fees and empower the grandmum who will take up the upkeep of the 2 months old the deceased left behind.”
Moji Olaiya, 42 and mother of two daughters, died of cardiac arrest in the early hours of Thursday, May 18, after a long battle with childbirth complications.
Nollywood actors pleaded with Asiwaju Tinubu to help with the cost of the burial arrangement and he reportedly obliged their request on Monday.
Moji’s corpse is being prepared for freight to Nigeria as one of her siblings, Femi Olaiya arrived Canada from his London base on the night of Saturday, May 20
