Recall that the Minister for Information, Lai Mohammed has earlier rubbished the reports that Buhari was cloned with one Jubril from Sudan.
He said, “It is idiotic to say the President is cloned. I don’t see any serious government responding to that. So, the same Jubril 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 Jubril 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 memos he had seen or heard about in 1985 and we say he is cloned.
“So, Jubril 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.”
