Following the recent interview of Nigeria’s president Muhammadu Buhari by the AriseTV morning show crew, made up of Reuben Abati, a former media aide to ex-President, Goodluck Jonathan,Tundun Abiola, Prince Nduka Obaigbena and Olusegun Adeniyi, the interview has opened a fresh debate with the leader of the Indigenous People of Biafra(IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu over the true identity of who was interviewed by the Arise TV team.

Earlier, Ruben Abati through his article after the interview shared some insights on the recent interview with President Muhammadu Buhari.

In an article on Tuesday, Abati, tried to clear some conspiracy theories concerning the Presidency being taken over by a cabal, with some also arguing that the elected President died a while ago and had been replaced by a body clone called Jibrin from Sudan.


Nigerians have also been told how their President had succumbed to a combination of dementia and senility and his administration taken over by some persons who call the shots in his name.

These conspiracies flourished due to the absence of the Buhari’s personal voice.

“The man that our team sat with and interviewed didn’t sound like a Jibrin from Sudan,” Abati said.

“He was alert, alive, informed, confident, relaxed, witty and capable of disarming humour. He was not the invalid or the senile old man that his critics say he is.

“He didn’t sound weak either. As the interview progressed, he had another function that he needed to attend, and we didn’t leave the Villa until about 11 pm.

“Less than 12 hours later, the same man, the following day was in Lagos to commission rail, maritime, and security projects.” Abati affirmed.

On the contrary, the IPOB leader, Nnamdi Kanu challenged Abati to reveal the true identity of who he interviewed.

“The man that our team sat with and interviewed didn’t sound like a Jibrin from Sudan,” Abati said.

But reacting to Abati’s claims, Nnamdi Kanu, who has championed the conspiracy of Buhari’s alleged death and cloning, tweeted, “@abati1990,

Could you kindly tell the world, from the collection below, which version of …@MBuhari you interviewed?

“The man you interviewed, did he speak #Fulfude? Did you ask him about the hole in his neck or his Kpomo ear?

“Eyes are useless when the mind is blind.” the IPOB leader added.
