Reno Omokri, former New Media aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, has reacted to the joke made by American popular comedians, Jimmy Kimmel and Trevor Noah, on President Muhammadu Buhari being ‘cloned’ and replaced by ‘Jubril of Sudan’.
Buhari had been subject of media speculations for some weeks after the pro-Biafra leader, Nnamdi Kanu, in his message to world, said President Buhari was ‘dead’ and has been replaced by a double, Jubril Aminu Al-Sudani.
However, President Buhari himself told the Nigerian community in Poland that he was the real deal and not a clone.
Meanwhile, in a viral video of American late-night show, aired on ABC news in the US, Kimmel cracked jokes about Buhari being perceived as dead and cloned.
His colleague, Trevor Noah also joined him on stage as they mocked speculations around the president.
Reacting to the video, Omokri tweeted in condemnation of the jokes on Buhari, stating that the president has turned himself into the butt for international joke.
Omokri wrote: “Find me someone who does not matter. Like the President of Nigeria”.
“What this video. This is an exact quote. First it was CNN. Then Jimmy Kimmel. Now it is Trevor Noah.
“Sad that Buhari has turned himself and his government into an international JOKE!”
