The President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Muhammadu Buhari has described the claim that he was dead and replaced by one Jibril from Sudan as a joke that was not funny.
President Buhari disclosed this in a documentary shown Friday night at a dinner organised by his family and very closed associates, to celebrate his 80th birthday tagged “Celebrating A Patriot, a Leader, an Elder Statesman” at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.
He bemoaned that some Nigerians have a way of creating humour to feast on something they do not understand.
According to him, the rumour was the work of mischief makers.
Asked by the interviewer if he heard about the crazy rumour a while back that he was not Buhari, he replied “Yes! People said I am somebody from Sudan. I didn’t bother with the name. Nigerians have mischievous ways of explaining themselves.”
Asked how he finds such things funny, the President said: “No. It’s not funny because those who made those statement, they just want to be cheeky. They want to distract attention from the main issue.
“Our main issue is to do the infrastructure, make people aware that they need to work hard to live well. They just want to enjoy life without earning the respect of their community and so on.”
Buhari also said he will not miss Aso Rock much because he was being harassed and that his efforts to make the country better was not good enough and appreciated by some people.
On what he will miss about the presidency, Buhari said: “I wonder if I am going to miss much. I think I’m being harassed. I believe I’m trying my best but still my best is not good enough. Because there are people around that think that they can intimidate me to get what they want instead of going through certain systems to earn whatever they want to earn. And they are some people who want to be clever by half.”
President Buhari revealed that he lost two of his children by his late wife to sickle cell anaemia and that was why when he wanted to remarry, he insisted the second wife must be AA genotype, so that his children will not inherit the S from his AS genotype.
