Former presidential spokesperson Femi Adesina has revealed how former President Muhammadu Buhari debunked Nnamdi Kanu, the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, that he was the “Jubril of Sudan.”

When Buhari returned from London in 2019 and saw Adesina, he reported that Buhari recalled his name and made a comment on his fashion sense.

On a medical trip to London, Buhari was told by Kanu that the President had passed away and Jubril of Sudan had taken his place.

Adesina, however, denied the allegation, arguing that Buhari’s behavior toward people who welcomed him at the airport demonstrated that he was not a clone.

Adesina’s revelation was made in his recently released book, “Working with Buhari: Reflections Of A Special Adviser, Media And Publicity (2015 – 2023).”

He wrote: “The then Chief of Defense Staff, General Gabriel Abayomi Olonisakin, was giving out his daughter in marriage, and I had been invited. For such outings, you needed the full Yoruba Agbada, with cap to match. That was what I wore. From church and reception, I went straight to the Airport, as the President was billed to land about 4:00 pm. And when he did, we formed the usual reception line.

“He shook hands with everyone, saying one wisecracks or the other (he is full of such), and when he got to me, he said: ‘Adesina, this is the best I have seen you dressed.’ We laughed. Yes, I do not often wear Agbada, and it was probably the first time the President was seeing me in it.

“When later, some people began to spread unfounded stories that the man that returned to the country on that August 19 was not the real Buhari, but a clone, named Jubril of Sudan, I just found it preposterous, even otiose. My response was usually that if the person was a certain Jubril, how did he know my name, and commenting on my dressing? Pathetic people. Pitiable.”
