To Say Jibrin from Sudan is in Aso Villa, Not Buhari is Idiotic – Lai Mohammed

Lai Muhammed

The Nigerian federal government on Thursday, November 29, reacted to claims that President Muhammadu Buhari is cloned.

Alhaji Lai Mohammed, minister of information and culture, in an interview with journalists in Abuja described the claims as “idiotic”.

There had been rumours circulating that the president was cloned and that the man who is presiding over the affairs of the country is Jibrin from either Sudan or Chad.

The rumour followed Buhari’s recovery after undergoing treatment for an undisclosed illness about two years ago.

Mohammed said: “It is idiotic to say the President 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? The President 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.”
