Jubril: Buhari Clears The Air-And Raises More Questions

By Uche Mbah

At last, President Muhammadu Buhari appeares to have heeded the call of the masses to respond to the allegation of an imposter occupying the Nigerian seat of Power in Aso Rock. In a video that is going viral, Buhari was seen saying that he is Buhari, thereby giving the lie to speculations that a body double, or Doppelganger, is occupying Aso Rock. Some claim he is a clone, which is unlikely because a clone has to pass through in vitro fertilization and genetic manipulation of a stem cell to be born a carbon copy of the object cloned.

But there has been speculations and conspiracy to the effect that a body double from Sudan, called Jubril, is the current occupant of Aso Rock.

Recall that after a prolonged treatment in the United Kingdom of an undisclosed illness by the President, the President last year April return home to a miraculous healing. He looked fifteen years younger, allegedly shorter and allegedly displayed limited ability to speak Fufulde, the Fulani language that Buhari is at home with. Various pictures appeared in social media competing to explore physical differences in the before and after pictures of Buhari. One even sought to show that he was right handed but that the current Buhari is left handed. That argument was, however, defeated when it was discovered that the picture must have been flipped in a brazen desperation to prove that the  person occupying Aso Rock is an impostor.

Most of the wars for and against raged within the Social Media only, with the mainstream media avoiding the story like a plague. It was first started by a former minister of information, Femi Fani Kayode, who insisted the one in Aso Rock is an imposteor. Then the leader of the Separatist Movement, Indigenous People Of Biafra, IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, who was using it as a political weapon to weaken the Federal government position. Later, he disappeared in mysterious circumstances during a raid in his house by the Nigerian Military. He resurfaced in recent times in Israel and has since continued his tirade against the Nigerian Government and resurrecting the specter of Jubril.

But Buhari, i a recent video purported to have been shot in Poland, has stated that the rumor is false.

“A lot of people hoped that I died during my ill health. It is real me… I will soon celebrate my 76th birthday and I will still go strong,” he said.
The video background did not give out the location of the speech, but his handlers claim it was shot in Poland where he was said to have gone for a conference. According to Abike Dabiri erewa, he was at the opening ceremony at the Climatic change in Poland.
Before the current movement, Lai Mohamed, the Minister of information, had dismissed the rumors.

“It is idiotic to say the President is cloned. I don’t see any serious government responding to that”, he said. “So, the same Jubril that was cloned from Sudan or Chad is in Chad now? Isn’t that stupid?” he had asked at a press conference in Abuja. “They even said he is from Chad. Yet, the same President is in Chad as we speak. The same Jibrin is remembering what the President did while in Petroleum Trust Fund and he is also remembering what he did when he was head of state between 1983 and 1985.”

But Nigerians are querying why Buhari will always go outside the country to make important policy decisions and statements. It has been a constant of the Buhari persona since the inception of the All progressives congress, APC, government.
Besides, die hard critics insist that forensic analysis of the independence broadcasts since 2015 to 2018 shows two different individuals. They insist that using the parameters of distance between the eyes, facial expressions, oracular movements, and voice analysis shows two different individuals, 2015 and 2016 as one person, 2017 and 2018 as another.
But Lai Mohamed dismisses all these.He had wondered aloud: “(You mean) all the ministers do not know who is before them when they attend the federal executive council meeting? The President remembers memos he had seen or heard about in 1985 and we say he is cloned. So, Jubril from Chad or Sudan will now remember all of these? It is too silly for the government to respond to this. It must be ignored.”
The issue is not likely to be easily ignored in a hurry.

One Thought to “Jubril: Buhari Clears The Air-And Raises More Questions”

  1. I find it hard to believe this BuhariJubril cloning issue because while every human being has a
    look-alike, how do you explain the fact that the
    voice is still the same?
