In Poland, President Buhari dismisses "Jubril from Sudan" cloning tale

In Poland, President Buhari dismisses

Rumours about his demise spread across Nigeria past year, when the president spent five months on medical leave in London to treat an undisclosed illness. The conspiracy has be fanned by members of the political opposition and the separatist Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) party, who claim there is evidence that the president has been replaced by Jubril, a man some believe was imported from Sudan.

He spoke on the issue while interacting with Nigerians living in Poland, in his first official engagement, ahead of the Conference of the Parties (COP24) of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), which began yesterday.He said a lot of people had wished him dead during the period of his ill health.

Some Nigerians viewed the president's statement as dubious, claiming that a true leader would quash the rumours right before his compatriots in Nigeria - something a clone apparently would not do. When I was away on medical vacation a year ago, a lot of people hoped I was dead.

He said: "It's the real me, I assure you".

Buhari, who is in Poland attending a United Nations climate change conference, was asked about the rumours during a meeting on Sunday with Nigerians in the country.

"A lot of people had hoped that l died during my ill health". He said the false reports of his death even prompted some to reach out to his vice president because they assumed he would replace him.

"The ignorant rumours are not surprising - when I was away on medical vacation a year ago a lot of people hoped I was dead", he said in the tweet. "It's [the] real me; I assure you", Buhari added.

Reacting to the rumour in a viral video on social media, Oyedepo quoted an article written by Olatunde Dare, a columnist of the Nation Newspaper, saying Buhari could have died when he sought medical treatment in London and that someone cloned as him, is now presiding over Nigeria.

There have been rumours that the real Buhari was dead and the person occupying the number one seat is another person or a clone, a Jibrin from Sudan or Niger. I'm trying to save a lot of money, l only go out when it is necessary.
