Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, said this in an interview with journalists in Abuja on Thursday
Rumours have been circulating that the President Buhari was cloned and that the man who is presiding over the affairs of the country is one Jibrin from either Sudan or Chad.
The rumour followed Buhari’s recovery after undergoing treatment for an undisclosed illness about two years ago.
The minister said, “It is idiotic to say that President Buhari is cloned. I don’t see any serious government responding to that.
“So, the same Jibrin that was cloned from Sudan or Chad is in Chad now? Isn’t that stupid?
“They even said he is from Chad. Yet, the same President is in Chad as we speak. The same Jibrin is remembering what the President did while in Petroleum Trust Fund and he is also remembering what he did when he was Head of State between 1983 and 1985.
“All the ministers do not know who is before them when they attend the Federal Executive Council meeting? President Buhari remembers the memos he had seen or heard about in 1985 and we say he is cloned.
“So, Jibrin from Chad or Sudan will now remember all of these? It is too silly for the government to respond to this. It must be ignored.”
