The social media was on fire, as a picture went viral of President Muhammadu Buhari, the All Progressives Congress, APC, Presidential Candidate, in the February 16, 2019 general elections, showing the President without his cap.
The picture surfaced online, just a few weeks to the Presidential election, after months of speculations that the man in Aso Rock is not President Muhammadu Buhari, but an unknown Jubril from Sudan.
Recall, that since President Buhari’s rather miraculous healing in 2017, after an undisclosed ailment, and several months of medical attention in the United Kingdom, UK, some sections of Nigerians had alleged that the President was not the man in Aso Rock, and demanded among other things, that the President must remove his cap to identify himself, and also speak his dialect hausa language, on live Television.
While some Analysts and Observers believe that the move to leak the said picture, was a last minute election move by the APC, some others reacted angrily, alleging that the picture was photoshopped to deceive intelligent Nigerians, or simply the work of a rather not convincing Barber; causing them to withdraw their support for the APC Candidate, just some weeks to the general elections.
See below some of the reactions from Facebook, after the picture surfaced online yesterday:
