President Buhari: This is my real self, I’m not a clone

Buhari not cloned

President Muhammadu Buhari has reacted to the widespread reports that he had been cloned. The President is quoted to have made this remark while addressing Nigerians living in Poland.

Personal Assistant to the President on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, stated this in a Twitter Post, quoting the President as saying that some people wished him dead during his beleaguered illness earlier in the year.

The tweet read, “A lot of people hoped that I died during my ill health. It is real me… I will soon celebrate my 76th birthday and I will still go strong. — President @MBuhari this evening in Kraków, Poland. His response to a question of him being cloned.”

Many critics had on countless occasions berated the Presidency over the issue and had equally queried Buhari’s aides to attest or quash the allegation.

In view of Nigerians request, the minister of information, Alhaji Lai Muhammed, averred, “It is idiotic to say the President is cloned. I don’t see any serious government responding to that. “So, the same Jubril that was cloned from Sudan or Chad is in Chad now? Isn’t that stupid?” he had asked at a press conference in Abuja.

“They even said he is from Chad. Yet, the same President is in Chad as we speak. The same Jibrin is remembering what the President did while in Petroleum Trust Fund and he is also remembering what he did when he was head of state between 1983 and 1985.

“All the ministers do not know who is before them when they attend the federal executive council meeting? The President remembers memos he had seen or heard about in 1985 and we say he is cloned.

“So, Jubril from Chad or Sudan will now remember all of these? It is too silly for the government to respond to this. It must be ignored.”

The President has however put the allegations to rest, saying, “I will soon celebrate my 76th birthday and I will still go strong”.
