As the controversy over President Muhammadu Buhari’s real identity continues to intensify, a Special Assistant to the President on Digital and New Media, Tolu Ogunlesi has strike back at Bishop David Oyedepo over his statement on President Buhari being dead and impersonated by Jubril el Sudan.
Oyedepo had on Sunday reacted to report that Buhari was dead and the President in Aso Rock was Jubril El Sudan.
Bishop Oyedepo, speaking from Living Faith church HQ at Canaan land, Ota, on Sunday called on Buhari to as a matter of urgency, address the nation on the allegations.
But, reacting, Buhari’s aide, Ogunlesi took to his Twitter page, describing Oyedepo as a hater of Buhari. He wondered why the cleric would go to a far length to discredit Buhari.
Ogunlesi wrote: “Olatunji Dare, one of Nigeria’s finest satirists, wrote a piece titled ‘Buhari’s Double’ on Nov 27: “Pastor of one of Nigeria’s LARGEST CHURCHES cites the SATIRE in a sermon (apparently yest) as evidence PMB likely dead.
“I know the Bishop has always detested PMB (its a free world, really, the right to dislike anyone is guaranteed constitutionally atink), but I don’t understand why he keeps going this far to peddle/amplify (from the pulpit) falsehood and disinformation about him. Really puzzling.“
