Vice President Yemi Osinbajo has mocked reports that President Muhammadu Buhari died in London and was replaced as Jubril Al Sudani from Sudan.
The self-acclaimed leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, had on numerous occasion claimed that Buhari had died during his medical vacation last year and was replaced by Jubril.
Speaking at a National Consultative Forum organised by the National Committee of Buhari Support Groups (NCBSG) in collaboration with Council for New Nigeria Initiative, the Vice President wondered how a certain Jubril from Sudan would be presiding over the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting.
He said that the fear of Buhari was making some detractors lose their senses.
Osinbajo said: “They prayed for him to die, he didn’t die. When he came back hale and hearty by the grace of the Almighty God, they mourned while Nigerians rejoiced.
“The fear of Buhari makes these people desperate even crazy. So now they say he is Jubril from Sudan. If you can’t discredit him say he doesn’t exist; they were all alive and well when Pastor Adeboye went to London and prayed for him the day before he returned to Nigeria.
“How will one Jubril sit in Federal Executive Council and conduct meetings, consult with his ministers, speak to me daily?
“Their strategy is simple, if you tell a lie often enough some will believe you; Buhari is not only alive and well, he will by God’s grace live long and well after his second term in office.”
