But wouldn’t a clone do that?
Nigeria’s 75-year-old president, Mohammad Bukhari, gave false information that he died and was replaced by a double from Sudan. Rumors that have been spreading for several months were recalled to the head of state at a meeting with Nigerians in Krakow, Poland, Daily Nigerian writes .
Bukhari distributed an e-mail application and tweeted it.
This is the real me, I assure you. Soon I will celebrate the 76th birthday and will still be full of energy (he was born on December 17th – approx.).
According to Bukhari, “many people” hoped that he would die during the last long treatment. Some found him dead and contacted the vice president of Nigeria to nominate his deputies, the head of state said.
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
