The leader of the proscribed Indigenous Peoples of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu, had alleged that Buhari was dead and replaced by “Jubril.”

But Buhari, on Sunday in Poland, said “it’s real me” and described the peddlers of such story as ignorant.

“It’s real me, I assure you. I will soon celebrate my 76th birthday and I will still go strong,” Buhari said.

“A lot of people had hoped that l died during my ill health. I will soon celebrate my seventy sixth birthday, l am strong.”

Speaking on the issue, Omokri tweeted that “The clone story is an example of how amateurish @MBuhari’s media team are.

“A President should talk not because he wants to say something, but because he has something to say.

“If Buhari had kept quiet about #BuhariIsNotAClone, he‘d have avoided international ridicule.”
