Nigerian President Denies Being an Imposter

In a story that manages to make American politics actually look pretty  normal, the president of Nigeria has assured residents of the country  that he was not secretly replaced by a doppelganger impersonating him.  Muhammadu Buhari reportedly made the remarks over the weekend in response to a bizarre conspiracy  theory that has been circulating on social media in Nigeria for the last  year or so. Following a stint in a British hospital in 2017, rumors  began to spread online that Buhari had actually died and Sudanese  lookalike had been inserted in his place.

Speaking to a group of Nigerians at an event in Poland, the beleaguered  leader saw fit to finally address these claims, much to the amusement of  his colleagues in attendance. "It's the real me, I assure you," Buhari  declared, "I will soon celebrate my 76th birthday and I will still go  strong." He also expressed sympathy for his Vice President, who had  purportedly been pestered by ambitious politicians hoping to take his  job since they believed the stories about Buhari's untimely demise.
