President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday in Poland reacted to reports that he was cloned when he was ill and away from the country.
According to a video posted on Twitter, Sunday by his Personal Assistant on New Media, Bashir Ahmad, the President addressed the issue while responding to a question on the matter during a meeting with the Nigerian community in Poland.
“It is the real me, I assure you,” he said.
He equally added that he would turn 76 soon and would remain strong as he has always been.
For months, speculations have been rife (especially on social media) that the President was cloned and substituted with a certain man from Sudan named ‘Jubril,’ following his return from London on August 19, 2017 where he spent 103 days treating an undisclosed ailment.
President Buhari is in Poland to participate in the 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), also known as COP24 and will join 29 Heads of Government for the ceremonial opening of the conference which is expected to take place on Monday.
