Jubril Al-Sudani: Nnamdi Kanu Set To Shock The World, Finally Announces Date For Release Of Proofs



Nnamdi Kanu

The Indigenous People of Biafra, IPOB, has said that its leader, Nnamdi Kanu, is set to send political shockwaves across the world as he is finally ready to release proofs to back up his claim of an impostor in Aso Rock.

Kanu has since 2017 maintained that President Muhammadu Buhari is dead, and a certain Jubril Aminu Al-Sudani, a Sudanese was contracted by the Cabal to act and behave as the Nigerian President.

IPOB, in a statement signed by its media and publicity secretary, Emma Powerful on Tuesday and forwarded to ORIENTAL TIMES, said Kanu will on or before December 17 release scientific details to prove President Buhari is being impersonated by a foreigner.

The statement partly reads:

“Any moment from now and hopefully on or before the advertised birthday anniversary of Muhammadu Buhari on the 17th of December 2018, our leader Mazi Nnamdi Kanu will send political shockwaves throughout the whole world on this issue of an impostor in Aso Rock. Events will begin to unfold in far more greater scientific detail from now on since the Aso Rock cabal have failed to speak truthfully about how Jubril was brought into Nigeria to assume the position of the president of a country of nearly 180 million people. There will be no escape for gangsters in Aso Rock.


“It is an indictment of the education system in Nigeria that seemingly educated people including senators do not know the difference between the word impostor and clone. Ordinary masses are left even more confused and ignorant by the insistence of the cabal media machine to divert the discussions away from the issue of an impostor to the murky world of new scientific advancements in human genetics. This is a ploy that is bound to fail because we will not let them to keep on confusing the people.

“An impostor is different from a clone. Jubril is an impostor not a clone. An impostor is a person who pretends to be someone else in order to deceive others, especially for fraudulent gain. Jubril Aminu Al-Sudani is an impostor from Sudan who is now pretending to be real late Nigeria president Mohammed Buhari who died on the 27/01/2017 and was buried in Saudi Arabia. A clone is an organism or cell, or group of organisms or cells, produced asexually from one ancestor or stock, to which they are genetically identical.

“With these clarifications in mind, average Nigerians should understand better what our leader is saying. At the end of this process of revelation, other ethnic nationalities in Nigeria and the international community will be grateful to IPOB Intelligence and have renewed respect for the courage and leadership of Mazi Nnamdi Kanu

    Suddenly, Biafra is no more on the front burner. Nnamdi Kanu had to create a diversion to divert the minds of his gullible followers when he realised that the Biafrans have been caught between Obi-dient Atikulation & election boycott. Biafra or death doesn’t seem to be marketable right now.

    Think! Please Think!

    “A Kenyan residing in Nigeria since 2012, is the CEO of a large multinational company. An expatriate.

    His contribution to an ongoing discussion about the socio-economic and political in Nigeria with three other men, all Nigerians, who sat around the table we were.

    “You see the problem with Nigeria is not just the corruption but the thinking. I am sorry to say, the average Nigerian does not think. They have all the degrees in the world, hold fancy positions, but they do not think.”

    “In other countries there is corruption, but the people think, so they know how their corrupt actions affect others and the country, in Nigeria, there is no thinking. Corruption is a fundamental human right here. It is the way of life. You people do not even bother to know how it has put you in the situation you are all complaining about, you don’t know how it affects you, all you do as though it is second nature is corrupt yourself and others, while ignoring and denigrating anything that was put in place to make your country function.”

    “Just Ghana there thinks. See their country. See your country. Let me tell you a story. I went to Ghana without a yellow card, the immigration people or is it their health officers at the airport asked for it. I told him I had none. He said I cannot enter the country without one. I begged him o. He said I should find him something, I found him something.”

    “So, the man went and brought the yellow card, told me to pay the official fee, filled all the relevant documents and then gave me the vaccinations, handed me the yellow card and let me go. But in Nigeria when I came here without yellow card. Your people at the airport told me to find them something. I found them something. They gave me the yellow card and told me to go on my way. I asked them, won’t you give me vaccination? They said there is no need. I told them but it is to protect me, to protect you, and protect others in the country. They laughed and said… “Don’t worry, God will not allow any bad thing happen.”

    “You see, they are corrupt and not thinking, they can’t relate things or connect dots. They will stay there and complain about everything. Even the thing they are causing themselves, they will complain about it as though it is someone else that caused it.”

    “You people are saying things are hard in this country. I sit laughing at you. How many expatriates in your country have you seen complaining? I mean people doing legitimate business. They adapt, change strategy, do their work quietly, earn their money and leave. But you people who are used to free easy money will complain when the situation changes and for you to survive, you need to think. It is the thinking that worries you. That is why your president said you are lazy. You are mentally lazy. Even patience is too much of a demand for you. All you want to do is steal government money or profit from someone who has stolen it.”

    “You are all like a pickpocket at a bus-stop who has been stealing wallets for years and when people start keeping away their wallets and protecting their pockets, he starts complaining – This country is too hard. What is wrong with people? Why would they prevent me from picking their pockets? This is the worst time ever, we should remove the person that told them to protect their pockets – You see the pick pocket feels so entitled to what belongs to others, he does not even accept that what he is doing is wrong and cannot even think deep enough to change his location or even get a job. It is thinking that is your problem. Once you start thinking in this country, you will be great, but until then, it is people like me that will come here and profit from you, while you sit there complaining.”

    “Thus says the LORD; ” Heaven is my throne and the earth is my footstool, what’s the house which you would build for me and what’s the place of my rest? (Isaiah 66:1)”.

    Trusting in earthly physical building and not trusting in God takes you no where and calamity is the result. Today, many people spend all their times in a building but their hearts are very far from God. The building can’t save you! The church is not a building, but people. When the Bible says Jesus is coming for church without spot or wrinkle, He’s not talking about building but people.

    God is the creator of all. No matter the bigness of your building it is not the resting place of God, nor is it His throne. The problem with this generation is that we seek and run after what fades and perishes rather than seeking the God who has made all things. The temple Solomon built was built of gold, it was very magnificent. Till today, I have not seen the temple built of gold like the one Solomon built, but God told Solomon that if people disobeyed and rebelled against Him, the temple shall be rejected and the strangers who see it, would shake their heads and say; why is this temple like this? and the people shall say, bcos the people have disobeyed the LORD and turned away from serving Him.

    That temple was later destroyed as foretold bcos they turned away from God. His throne is in heaven. When God wants to work or do anything, His Spirit is always there and the angels too. His Spirit is everywhere at the same time, you can never understand God. But the thing here is, building temple for God will not save you if you don’t obey Him and serve Him faithfully.

    Check this out, the Bible says where two or three people are gathered in my name, I am there. This doesn’t mean you should not go to the temple to worship but what this is telling us is that, earthly physical structure will not save but God will. You are the church not the building. God is the one to be obeyed and served faithfully. JESUS COMING SOON!

    — By Maxwell Chuks

    The problem with most Nigerians is that they look but don’t study/examine carefully, they see but don’t understand because they refuse to understand.

    Let me take your memory back to what happened in Russia.

    For decades, rumors circulated in Russia that Joseph Stalin had a “twin” who replaced him during certain situations. Decades after Stalin’s death, the decoy finally decided to talk. Felix Dadaev, a former dancer and juggler, had been ordered to work to the Kremlin as Stalin’s body double.

    For more than half a century, Dadaev remained silent, fearing a death sentence should he dare to open his mouth.

    But in 2008, at the age of 88, and with the apparent approval of the Putin regime, he finally came forward to write his autobiography. It explains that he was one of four men employed to impersonate the supreme leader, taking his place in motorcades, at rallies, on newsreel footage etc.

    Today in Nigeria, a Sudanese man named Jubril, is impersonating Muhammadu Buhari.

      And it makes you wonder, if the “brainless, illiterate aboki” Northerners could clone Buhari, yet those who claimed to be the “smartest” tribe in Africa couldn’t clone their Supreme Boaster to save him from the fangs of the Python! They preferred to wail, scream and spin out tales by moonlight from far away Israel!! It has always been: I will, I will, I will & an endless I will!!!!!

It is where youruba stands when Biafra goes, because your tribe is at the mercy of the fulanis.

We’re Winning War Against Corruption — Buhari




President Muhammadu Buhari has again declared that his administration was winning the war against corruption in the country.

He said the successes recorded so far by anti-graft agencies, especially the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), had bolstered Nigeria’s international image.

Buhari added that his government was poised to use cutting-edge information technology to strengthen the achievements and ensure that no government financial transaction was done in secret.

He assured that he would work towards making sure that reforms were deepened in such a way that there would be no hiding place for looters.

The President stated these on Tuesday in Kaduna at the Passing out parade of Detective Inspector Course Five, of the EFCC.


Buhari said: “The fight against corruption is becoming much more effective. I make bold to say that Nigeria is winning the war against corruption. We have been working within the frameworks of National Action Plan for Open Government Partnership (OGP), National Anti-Corruption Strategy which is an adaptation of United Nations Convention against Corruption and the Global Forum for Asset Recovery (GFAR).

“Several of the reforms have been effective for several years with great impact on revenue and expenditure management. These include; the Government Integrated, Financial and Management Information System (GIFMIS), Integrated Payroll and Personnel Information System (IPPIS), Treasury Single Account, and Bank Verification Number (BVN).

“Executive Orders, such as Preservation of Suspicious Assets Connected with Corruption (Executive Order 6), Nigerian Financial Intelligence Unit (NFIU) Act 2018; and Mutual Assistance in Criminal Matters Act 2018 have been operating for a few years and effectively limiting system opportunities for corrupt practices.

“This administration, right from the inception, aligned with the Open Governance Partnership and Global Forum for Asset Recovery in addition to existing commitments to African Union and Economic Community of West African States’ Conventions Against Corruption, and the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC).

“These frameworks focus significantly on systems reforms in order to prevent corruption. Nigeria’s active participation in these global anti-corruption platforms means that the country is subjecting itself to periodic review of its progress in implementing the articles of conventions thus the fight against corruption.

”Our fight against corruption is being recognised by the international community as real and effective. The face of the country abroad is also changing as the international community is beginning to see Nigeria making substantial progress in the enthronement of transparency, accountability and good governance.

“The President of the 7th Session of United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC) had this to say when announcing Nigeria as Vice Chairman of Conference of State Parties: ‘It is an election well-deserved. Nigeria has demonstrated remarkable determination in the fight against corruption.’ Nigeria retained the position of vice chair of the 8th Session.

“During the 10th Session of the Conference of State Parties, the Implementation Review Group Report also noted the high number of Asset Recovery cases successfully initiated by Nigeria in cooperation with other countries under the Mutual Legal Assistance (MLA) framework.”

Stressing that his administration was poised to use cutting-edge information technology to combat administrative corruption and espouse fiscal transparency, Buhari explained that all government financial transactions would soon be done in the open with the implementation of the various reform agenda.

The President noted that the various national reforms and collaborative efforts with international organisations were designed to strengthen anti-corruption agencies in Nigeria.

His words: “My resolve is to ensure that the reforms are deepened such that there will be no hiding place for corrupt persons and proceeds of corruption. My aim is to ensure that no government financial transaction is done in secret and all are subjected to public scrutiny.

“The objective of this administration is to institute a level of transparency in governance through mainly information technology platforms. Just as advanced democracies and some developing countries, I am determined that within a short period, citizens would be able to follow core government operations on line.

“Our government has reached advanced stage in Fiscal Transparency. The Appropriation Bill is placed online within hours of its presentation in National Assembly. The Budget Office of the Federation has been engaging interest groups in the budget cycle. A pilot scheme of 10 MDAs has been test running online display of their budgets and expenditure movements.

“Our commitment to online disclosure of Beneficial Owners of Companies generally within the framework of the Corporate Affairs Commission and in the extractive industries through Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI) is on course.

“I am aware the portals are ready but owners of companies are unwilling to comply with all disclosure requirements. I urge all well-meaning Nigerians to fully comply.”

The President said he was “determined that recovered assets are effectively managed with greater impact on fiscal operations of government and social investment policies of our administration.”

He praised efforts of the EFCC in making the war against corruption effective.

He added: “I have listened attentively to the report in the speech presented by the Chairman of EFCC. The report is an attestation that right policies have been put in place to fight corruption and the fight is becoming much more effective.

“I congratulate the EFCC on its good work and I urge that the current level of success be sustained and accelerated.”

Buhari also expressed happiness that the EFCC was making steady progress by the recruitment, training and deployment of a special force of 665 cadets to its zonal offices within the past two years.

In his opening remarks, the acting Chairman of the EFCC. Ibrahim Magu, stated that corruption was deadlier than cancer, coronavirus, Ebola virus and Lassa fever.

He also said the commission secured 1,893 convictions between 2015 and December 2019.

Magu added: “Corruption is worse than cancer, Ebola virus, coronavirus and all other deadly diseases put together. Corruption is responsible for the insecurity and other vices experienced in Nigeria today and if we can remove corruption from our system, insecurity will disappear.

”In 2015, 103 convictions were secured. By 2016, 195 convictions were recorded, 314 convictions in 2018 and over 1,281 convictions in 2019.”

Magu also said that the commission was “currently developing its Statement of Strategy for 2020 to 2025, in line with the five pillars of National Anti-Corruption Strategy.”

He added that the EFCC, with the support of development partners, has built one of the best investigative laboratories in West Africa.

The laboratories, according to him, have aided investigators and prosecutors in achieving accuracy and deployment of “incontrovertible” evidence in courts.

Sacking Service Chiefs Will Threaten National Unity — Presidency



The Presidency on Tuesday said sacking service chiefs would create cracks in the country and threaten national unity.

The Presidency added that there were processes that should be followed in the disengagement of heads of security agencies insisting that “at the right time, those processes will be followed.”

The Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, stated this at the National Christian Centre, Abuja, during the public presentation of a book titled, ‘CAN, Religion and Power in Nigeria,’ written by a former General Secretary of the Christian Association of Nigeria, Samuel Salifu.

He said, “Well, I don’t think this (sacking of service chiefs) is appropriate for this forum; you don’t sack people like that. There are processes and I believe that at the opportune (sic) time, those processes will be followed.

“We need everybody to be on board. We need synergy within the intelligence community, within the military formations that will help fight this war. We are in a very difficult situation and when we begin to create cracks and divisions who will be the beneficiaries?”


The SGF described the book as a reservoir of information, history and past years of struggle.

At the event, Ijaw leader and former Federal Commissioner for Information, Chief Edwin Clark, represented by a former Nigerian Ambassador to Scandinavia, Godknows Igali, attributed the insecurity and disunity in the country to religious differences.

Clark said, “No religion should be regarded as superior to another or be given priority consideration. For instance, the whole country and indeed the international community is watching out to see how Mr President will handle the next appointments for the Presidency of the Court of Appeal as the current occupier bows out and the position becomes vacant on March 4, 2020. It is also the same for the service chiefs which will soon be vacant. My prayer is that Mr President will do the correct thing.”

The President of CAN, Rev. Samson Ayokunle, advised government to put an end to the killings in the country.

He said, “It will be good to make sure that those in government fight violence in Nigeria. Because if they fail to accomplish a Nigeria where there is peace and security, it will be sad and it will be part of their history forever and ever.”

A former Catholic Archbishop of Abuja, His Eminence John Cardinal Onaiyekan said Nigeria would stand and flourish only when Muslims and Christians walk together to make religion a factor of stability, unity, peace and prosperity.

Muslims And Christians Are All Sons Of Abraham, Buhari Tells Nigerians



A statement has been released by President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday, February 18 in commemoration of the abduction of Leah Sharibu who is the only remaining Dapchi schoolgirl in Boko Haram’s den.

President Buhari disclosed that no one can force Nigerians to change their religion against their will because everyone has the right to practice any religion of their choice.

While regretting that Leah Sharibu is still in captivity, Buhari assured Nigerians that his administration will continue working towards emsuring Leah Sharibu and other children in captivity regain their freedom.

The statement reads;



On the second anniversary of Dapchi, Muhammadu Buhari, President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria makes the following statement:

Two years ago, 110 innocent children from the town of Dapchi were taken, against their will, by the terrorists of Boko Haram. 107 survived the ordeal. Today all but one – Leah Sharibu – are returned to their families.

Now aged 16, Leah remains in the hands of the terrorists – they say because she refuses to renounce her Christian faith.

We say, as the government for and of all Nigerians, that no person has the right to force another to change their faith against their will and that all life is sacred.

This government continues and seeks to secure the release of all children and captives of terrorists – and we do so regardless of their creed or the name of their creator.

As we redouble our efforts for Leah’s return, we can never allow the terrorists to divide us – Christian against Muslim, Muslim against Christian. We are all Sons of Abraham. And all Nigerians have the same worth and rights before the law, and before God.
