Former president, Olusegun Obasanjo, said he does not believe the current Nigerian leader Muhammadu Buhari is cloned as widely believed by some nationals.

Speaking on Sunday, January 31, the former president described as "nonsense" the growing insinuation that Buhari is dead and the person ruling the country is from Sudan.

The former president said he worked with Buhari and he knows what he "believed was his limitations" which he has addressed in his books and letters, The Cable reports.

The campaign of misinformation, led by the leader of a secessionist group IPOB, Nnamdi Kanu, also claimed that Buhari was dead in the UK.

Obasanjo said Buhari is still the same person occupying the Aso Rock villa, though he has some weaknesses like poor knowledge in the economy which often brings his leadership style to question.

"I thought I knew President Buhari because he worked with me. But I used to ask people, is it that I have not read him well or read him adequately or is it that he has changed from the Buhari that I used to know?
"I am not subscribing to the people who say we have a new Buhari from Sudan and all that nonsense."
