President Muhammadu Buhari has replied those saying that he is a clone.
The President spoke on the issue in far-away Poland during an interactive session with members of the Nigerian community.
Buhari is in Poland to attend the climate change conference scheduled to hold from December 2 to December 4, 2018.
The President, in a post on Twitter via the handle: @MBuhari said “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!”
According to reports, the Buhari clone story started when he returned from one of his periodic medical trips to London.
Nnamdi Kanu, the exiled leader of the Indigenous People Of Biafra (IPOB) told his followers that the President had died in London.
The IPOB leader also claimed that a body double known as Jubril from Sudan was hired and trained by Buhari’s handlers to take his place.
The story has since spread on social media with many Nigerians sharing different angles and presenting their proof to back the claim.
