I am not being called Jubril of Sudan …Buhari

It was reflection time for President Muhammadu Buhari as he sat down on Friday night in Abuja with his family, other close relatives, friends and associates who gathered to celebrate him on his 80th birthday.

Buhari who reminisced about his life, particularly his involvement in politics, dwelt on the pressure of being president, his family and life after office.

He said he was pained by the rumour sparked by his prolonged hospitalisation in London in 2017 when some people claimed he had died and a Jubril from Sudan had been procured as a body double to replace him.

He described the brains behind the rumour as cheeky and mischievous.

He spoke in a documentary which was one of the highlights of the birthday event.

Responding to a question in the documentary about whether he was bothered by the rumour, he said he also heard it but chose   not to be distracted by it.
