Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari has denied allegations that he had died and replaced by Sudanese fraud, breaking his silence on a rumor that has circulated on social media for several months.
Buhari, who runs for re-election in February, spent five months in Britain last year being treated for an unexplored disease. A theory that was heavily aired on social media ̵
1; and by some political opponents – was that he had been replaced by a look from Sudan called Jubril.
No proof has been submitted, but claimed videos have been shown thousands of times on YouTube and Facebook.
“It’s the real me, I assure you. I will soon celebrate my 76th birthday and I will still be strong,” Buhari told Nigerians in a council session in Poland on Sunday where he attended a conference when He was asked about Jubril.
“Many people hoped I died during my ill health. Some even reached the vice president to consider they were his alternate because they assumed I was dead. It was a shame for him, and he obviously visited me when I was in London. “He said and added that those who spread the rumors were” ignorant and irreligious. “
The Nigerian leader said he was looking forward to celebrating his 76th birthday on December 17th and jocularly added: “# 39; If I get harassed by someone, it’s my granddaughter, who gets too many. & # 39; & # 39;
The Presidency circulated Buhari’s comments in an e-mailed statement entitled “It’s Real I, President Buhari, Responses to Cloning.”
A video from the president who answered the question that shows his colleagues laugh when the question read out, has been written on the president’s Twitter account, followed by 1.76 million people, where it is stuck as its top tweet.
