Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari denies being replaced by clone

Nigeria's President Muhammadu Buhari has denied claims circulating on social media that he is a Sudanese clone.

Buhari, who is seeking re-election next year, spent a large part of 2017 in London for treatment for a serious illness, which has never been revealed to the public.

As the rumour of President Muhammadu Buhari being dead, cloned and replaced by a certain Jubril from Sudan refused to go away, the president eventually reacted in Poland on Sunday, December 2, saying that he is alive and would soon celebrate his 76th birthday.

The Summit is the 24th session of the conference of the parties under the un framework convention on climate change, otherwise known as cop24.

Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State, Governor Abubakar Bello of Niger State and Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi of Enugu State are also in Poland with the President.

President Buhari, while responding to question from a Nigerian, who wanted to know if he was the real Buhari or the much talked about Jibril from Sudan, at the town hall meeting in Krakow, yesterday evening, said, "A lot of people had hoped that l died during my ill health".

Andres Iniesta played a key role in selling Vissel Kobe to his old Spain and Barcelona team-mate David Villa . The pair were, of course, successful teammates at both Barcelona and the Spanish national team in the past.

Buhari's denial that he has been cloned comes after influential IPOB member and advocate for the conspiracy theory, Mazi Nnamdi Kanu, resurfaced in Israel in October, having gone missing for over a year, according to the BBC.

"Yes, a lot of people had hoped that l was dead and call the Vice President and asked whether he should consider them because they thought l was dead".

On women representation in his government, the President told the meeting: "I have plans for all Nigerians".

In Poland on Sunday, Buhari told some Nigerians based in the European nation that his opponents were behind the rumors of his death.

"That embarrassed him a lot; we discussed it when he visited me while I was convalescing", Buhari said. "It's real me, l assure you". "And I'm still going strong!"

Rumors of a double or a clone ruling the country instead of President Muhammadu Buhari have plagued the minds of Nigerians for roughly a year ever since the 75-year-old returned from his medical treatments in the United Kingdom, looking all reborn.
