I will soon celebrate my 76th birthday, I am not dead - Buhari finally speaks about being cloned
President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday, December 2, finally reacted to insinuations that he may have been cloned and that he is not the actual person in Aso Rock as the nation’s leader.
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. pic.twitter.com/SHTngq6LJU— Muhammadu Buhari (@MBuhari) December 2, 2018
Buhari, who is in Poland for an official engagement, said in Kraków, Poland that he is alive and would soon celebrate his 76th birthday.
