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.

Buhari Signs Prisoner Swap Deal With Macao




President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday assented to an agreement for the exchange of prisoners between the Nigerian government and the Macao government in China.

“President Muhammadu Buhari has assented to the Instrument of Ratification of the Agreement on the Transfer of Sentenced Persons between the Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Government of the Macao Special Administrative Region of the People’s Republic of China,” presidential spokesman Femi Adesina said in a statement.

Adesina disclosed that Buhari signing the bill was an aftermath of deliberations from the Federal Executive Council conclusion on August 1, 2018.

The presidential spokesman said the government had directed Nigeria’s attorney-general justice minister Abubakar Malami to prepare the instrument of ratification of the agreement for the President Buhari’s signature.

“President Buhari’s assent formally executes the Agreement,” Adesina said.

Nigeria Will End North-East Insurgency Just Like Civil War — Buhari



President Muhammadu Buhari has assured that Nigeria will soon see the end of the insurgence that has bedeviled the North-Eastern part of the country in the last few years.

He gave the assurance on Friday at the State House in Abuja while receiving the European Union (EU) Commissioner for Crisis Management, Janez Lenarcic, saying that Nigeria had seen similar occasions in the past, but managed to overcome and forged on.

The President also assured that the newly created Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development will effectively manage all attendant crises from the insurgency.

Recalling his experience of the Nigerian Civil War, the President noted that the current security challenge in the North-East, though might take some time, will also be subdued, saying “If we were capable to fight a 30-month civil war and reorganised our country, I wonder why people are thinking that Nigeria cannot do it”.

According to a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina, President Buhari emphasised the devastating effect of the Libyan crisis on the whole of the Sahel region of the continent, citing the activities of terror groups in Mali, Mauritania, Niger and Burkina Faso in recent times.


He, however, assured the European Union envoy of Nigeria’s continued cooperation with the EU, saying “I assure you of Nigeria’s commitment to enhance and deepen cooperation with the EU in all areas.

“Our priorities in the next level is to ensure that Internally Displaced Persons, IDPs, are rehabilitated so that livelihood should be established and the children should not lose the opportunity to go back to school, which is very important for the future of that area and Nigeria generally.

“We have the experience of the civil war. I could recall the role of the military, the army, each commander had in his pocket how to behave himself and how to allow international bodies like yourself to go round and see for themselves that people are treated in the most humane way. We have this experience and I assure you that we also have this confidence in your organisation. That is why I feel that Nigeria is capable of handling this crisis, it may take long but we are capable of handling it.

“The important thing really is weapons reaching the Sahel; the instability it is causing. Look at the casualties in Mauritania, Niger, Burkina Faso and Mali; Libya has a direct impact on the stability of the Sahel. As for Boko Haram, we try to disabuse the mind of the people and I think our people now understand the basic dishonesty in it. With my experience personally in the civil war, I am sure we will get over it.

“I assure you that we are aware of these problems and we will continue to do our best. The newly created Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs is coordinating NEMA and others, to make sure that whatever resources we get are well utilised. The ministry will be accountable to the government instead of having too many bodies doing the same thing. We are also reaching out to foreign countries explaining to them our position, and we are confident we will get over it”, the President said.

The EU Commissioner emphasized that Nigeria plays a big role in the African continent and globally in economic, social and other spheres and asked for the development of a plan between the EU and Nigeria concerning the issues in the Northeast. He said he had visited Borno State and appreciates government’s efforts to end the conflict there.

“We would like to support your efforts. We believe all relevant actors; military, civilian as well as humanitarian should come together. The Minister of Humanitarian Affairs is suggesting such high level dialogue.

“In situations such as what we have in the northeast, international law and international humanitarian law should apply. We believe in your efforts to end the conflict; military effort alone probably will not be sufficient without identifying and addressing the socio-economic factors causing it,“ he stated.

I Never Said Amotekun Is Illegal — Malami



Abubakar Malami

Minister of Justice and Attorney General of the Federation, Abubakar Malami, has denied declaring the South-West regional security outfit codenamed ‘Operation Amotekun’ illegal.

He stated he was misquoted on his interpretation of the outfit established by the six South West Governors.

Responding to chat on Radio Nigeria Abuja on Thursday morning, Malami said: “I was misinterpreted on Operation Amotekun. I did not say it’s illegal.

“I said the Operation Amotekun should be properly backed by law, so if at the end of this government, if the operation has been backed by law, any government that eventually succeeded this government would not rubbish the operation.

“I said if they failed to enact a law in support of Amotekun in the South-West Region of Nigeria, another government can come and say it’s illegal and this is because it is not backed up by any law.


“So, it is just a piece of advice to the state governors to use their power and the State Houses of Assembly in their various states to enact a law that will make the operation more effective.”

However his media aide, Dr Umar Gwandu, maintained that the constitution did not recognise regional security outfit.

Gwandu quoted Malami as insisting that regional security architectural arrangement by states was not tolerated by the constitution.

The minister said: “The planning, execution, consummation of whatever security arrangement must be naturally grounded in law, rooted in the constitution and tolerated by the law.

“For any arrangement to stand within the law, the bottom line is that constitutionality and legality must be factored.

“Provided that there is an aberration relating to constitutional compliance, I think the right thing to do is to ensure constitutionality and legality both in spirit, planning, concept, and consummation.

“If you are talking of regional arrangement, for example, at what point did the state assemblies come together as a region for the purpose of coming up with a statue or a law that can operate within the context of the constitution, taking into consideration the federating arrangement that does not allow or tolerate a regional state House of Assembly arrangement.

“You cannot independently, unilaterally operate in the provision of the constitution without recourse to the constitutional authority that is the bottom line.

“Working together, helping the Federal Government in the provision of security is indeed a welcome development but it has to be rooted in the law and within the context of working arrangement with institutions constitutionally established and not a unilateral exclusive arrangement by a regional body.

“In the circumstances of Amotekun, it is the idea of unilateral control that it is the problem without recourse to the institutional and constitutional arrangement that is put in place by our constitution.

“You can indeed provide whatever support and consideration but definitely it must be rooted in the constitutional arrangement and so self-help by way of unilateral arrangement cannot be tolerated with particular reference to a regional arrangement which is not rooted in the constitution within the context of security.”
