President Muhammmadu Buhari on Sunday in Poland denied rumour that he is dead and buried.
The rumour about Buhari’s death has been making the rounds for months. The peddlers claimed the presidency kept his death under wraps, and have been parading one Jubril, a Sudanese as the president.
But reacting to the rumors of his cloning for the first time, Buhari said that a lot of people had hoped he was dead during the period of his ill health.
His word, “A lot of people hoped that I died during my ill health. Some even reached out to the Vice President to consider them to be his deputy because they assumed I was dead. That embarrassed him a lot and of course, he visited me when I was in London convalescing… It’s real me; I assure you,’’
The Nigerian leader said he was looking forward to celebrating his 76th birthday on December 17 and jocularly added: ‘‘If I am getting harassed by anyone, it is my grandchildren, who are getting too many.’’
