After several years of argument on Jibril from Sudan, President Muhammadu Buhari has reacted to the viral claims.
The president said the rumor of his dead and his supposed body dubbed, ‘Jibril Aminu from Sudan’ as the one occupying the presidential villa in Aso Rock, as an expensive but funny joke.
In a documentary shown on Friday night at a private dinner organised by his family and very close associates, marking his 80th birthday tagged “Celebrating a Patriot, a Leader, an elder statesman”.
The President said some Nigerians are skilled in creating humour to feast on something they do not understand or comprehend.
He described the rumour as the work of some mischief makers to demonstrate their cheekiness.
Asked by the interviewer if he heard about the crazy rumour a while back that he was not Buhari, he replied smiling, “Yes! People said I am somebody from Sudan. I didn’t bother with the name. Nigerians have mischievous ways of explaining themselves.”
