In a recent statement on Tuesday, Lai Mohammed, the Minister of Information and Culture, disclosed that the Federal Government will soon invite Anthony Joshua, the newly crowned unified World Heavyweight Boxing Champion.

Lai said that the Nigerian Government had already congratulated Joshua, the British professional boxer who last week defeated Ukranian Wladimir Klitschko to become the new World Heavyweight Champion.

According to Lai, he noted that Joshua in an interview said that he is a Nigerian man by blood.

“My heart is in Nigeria, my heart is in Britain. I am a Nigerian man by blood, yes,” Lai quoted Joshua as saying in a recent interview.

The minister added that Joshua listed some Nigerian cuisine like pounded yam, eba and egusi as secret of his success.
