The presidency has reacted to the joke made by American popular comedian, Jimmy Kimmel on President Muhammadu Buhari ‘alleged death and being ‘cloned’ and replaced by one ‘Jubril of Sudan’.
For some weeks now, Buhari had been under media speculations, after pro-Biafran leader, Nnamdi Kanu, in his message to world, said President Buhari was ‘dead’ and has been replaced by a Jubril Aminu Al-Sudani, as a double.
However, President Buhari in a recent visit to Poland, told the Nigerian community there that he isn’t a clone.
Meanwhile, in a viral video of an American late-night show aired on ABC news in the US, Kimmel cracked jokes about Buhari being perceived as dead and cloned.
Reacting, Abike Dabiri, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Foreign Affairs and the Diaspora, dismissed the video as a joke:
Through her twitter account, she wrote: “Cracking up on Jimmy Kimmel Live joke on the issue of Buhari cloning.
“Jimmy is a comedian, his source of livelihood. The joke is a no to the stupidly of even believing in the cloning narrative at all, not on PMB. Won’t waste energy on this. That’s all.”
