Presidency responds to Nnamdi Kanu on his claims of Buhari being ‘Jubril of Sudan’
The Presidency has rebuked claims by Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), that President Muhammadu Buhari is Jubril of Sudan.
Buhari’s Special Adviser on Media and Publicity said it is “idiocy” to say that the president is dead and cloned to be Jubril from Sudan.
Adesina disclosed this in his latest article titled, ‘The Essential Buhari: VP Osinbajo got it!.’
He recalls how Buhari, upon return from his medical trip abroad in 2017, recognised him.
The article reads partly:
“I remember that day in August 2017, when the President returned to the country finally from his medical vacation.
“We were at the airport to receive him. I have told the story a number of times, to dispel the idiocy that it was a certain Jibril of Sudan that came back and not Buhari.
“We the principal aides were on a line to receive the President as he descended from the aircraft. And he shook hands with each person, having one wisecrack or the other to say, as is typical of him. When he got to me, he said, “Adesina, this is the best I’ve seen you dressed.” And we both laughed.
“Jibril of Sudan? How did he know I was Adesina? How would he know how I normally dressed? Idiocy, I say again. But that is just a digression, not the story I really want to tell to support the topic at hand.”
Kanu had rumoured Buhari’s death in 2017, following the president’s medical trip to London.
He had claimed that Buhari was cloned and replaced with Jubril Al-Sudan after his death.
