‘This is Real Me’ Buhari Reacts to Clone Rumour in Poland
President Muhammadu Buhari finally reacts in Poland to the astonishing rumour making rounds that he was cloned. He said it is not surprising to him.
For as unbelievable as this claim is, the groups that propagated and are distributing the rumour were backing it with some observations and fictions. Notable among them is IPOB led by Nnamdi Kanu. They claimed that President Buhari died in London but was replaced with one Jubril from Sudan who is parading himself as President Muhammadu Buhari.
Below is the full text of the President’s statement on the issue.
“One of the questions that came up today in my meeting with Nigerians in Poland was on the issue of whether I‘ve been cloned or not. The ignorant rumours are not surprising — when I was away on medical vacation last year a lot of people hoped I was dead.
Poor @ProfOsinbajo, even he had to deal with the rumours — Some people reached out to him to consider them to be his Vice President because they assumed I was dead. That embarrassed him a lot; we discussed it when he visited me while I was convalescing.
I can assure you all that this is the real me. Later this month I will celebrate my 76th birthday. And I’m still going strong!”
