How I Confirmed Buhari Is Not Jubril Of Sudan – Femi Adesina

An aide to President Muhammadu Buhari has revealed how he confirmed that Buhari is not Jubril from Sudan.

Femi Adesina, who is the special adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on media and publicity made this known in an article titled ‘THE ESSENTIAL BUHARI: VP OSINBAJO GOT IT!’ posted on his Facebook page on Thursday night.

Mr. Adesina reiterated that there is no truth in some insinuations which went viral previously that President Buhari has been replaced by one Jubril from Sudan.

Adesina in his article was reacting majorly to the earlier submission by Vice President Yemi Osinbajo that it would be difficult to find any other politician in Nigeria as popular as Buhari but took a detour to emphasize why the personality of the president is so unique and commands such respect and attention.

It will be recalled that when President Buhari was away in London on medical leave back in 2017, viral insinuations which spread like wildfire, majorly sponsored by Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) had emerged that the Nigerian leader is dead and has been replaced by an impostor from Sudan known as Jubril.


Kanu had severally taken to the social media space to submit that an impostor is the one occupying the Aso Rock Villa and posing to be Nigeria’s president –  a claim also severally debunked by the presidency.

The issue was brought back to the timeline on Thursday by Mr. Adesina in his article in which he talked about the attributes of President Buhari, describing him as someone he has worked at close quarters with and has consistently exhibited some laudable characteristics.

The presidential media aide pointed out that Buhari on the very day he returned to Nigeria from London, said some personal stuff to him, which can only be known by someone who has known him for some time and not an impostor just trying to fit in.
