Kalu: President’s Visit to Southeast Will Clear Lies That He is Not Buhari

Senate Chief Whip Orji Kalu has said President Muhammadu Buhari’s visit to the Southeast would dispel the rumour that he was dead and had been cloned.

Speaking yesterday, he hailed Buhari for his visit, saying it would calm agitations in the region.

Buhari visited Imo and Ebonyi states on September 9, where he inaugurated projects.

Kalu urged the President to “put in more time” in going round the country so that people will see him and know that he is still the same Buhari.

At a point, rumours were rife that Buhari had died and had been replaced by one Jubril from Sudan.

The rumour started in 2017 when the President spent 150 days in the UK treating an undisclosed ailment, while the presidency failed to disclose his health status.

The rumoured death of the president, which is false and without any proof, is often peddled by Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).


“I want to congratulate President Buhari for going to the Southeast. He needs more of these visits,” Kalu said.

“Whether the visit is bitter, happiness or anything, it is a commendable initiative, and I commend him.

“He has gone to Lagos, Kano and Maiduguri and should continue going round, as those are part of the things a president needs to calm the system down. So, I commend him for making that trip. He should not regret embarking on the trip.”
