  1. This man is just wasting our money traveling around we have a lot of issues to address in Nigeria what’s the purpose of your travels

  2. There is something I dislike about this our president. He does talk to Nigerians here in Nigeria. Most of what he says are said outside this country. What is happening, is he afraid to talk to us in Nigeria. Worst president Nigeria has ever had.

  3. A good man have spoken against the wish of his enemy wishes, Untimely death will not come around you Papa, more greese to your elbow sir.

  4. Nobody wish that you die, we only want Nigeria to be a better place for everyone. Let’s live in peace and harmony, and not killing ourselves.

  5. There is something I dislike about this our president. He does talk to Nigerians here in Nigeria. Most of what he says are said outside this country. What is happening, is he afraid to talk to us in Nigeria. Worst president Nigeria has ever had. They should keep deceiving us.

  6. It was just a rumor and I need for once believed he was dead, people should stop saying non sense about our president. Long live presido

  8. Dis man doesn’t have respect for us at all…he only gets to address d country wen he is outside d country nd we are yet to believe him….I believe he is a clone

  9. Why is it that every time the president want to address the people in his country he his always out of the country…..

  10. Something he will address in Nigeria here and he had to go to Poland to address it. But the two pictures are not the same. Guess the caption of this news is out of contest

  11. Who ever that is doubting if it you should go on and doubt, we will celebrate with you in 76th birthday Mr President

  12. Oga presidoo na here Nigeria you suppose to address that issue, not in Poland because Poland is not your country

  13. A good man have spoken against the wish of his enemy wishes, Untimely death will not come around you Papa, more greese to your elbow sir.

  14. The pictures uploaded on social media is making me doubt if it’s really you but let God be the judge

  15. I think it’s just so daft if some set of people to say someone is clone . They should read more on “clone” before passing out such an untrue story

  16. No patriotic citizens of a country should wish his/her president death.. We all want a better Nigeria but that can’t be achieved by critics and ill wishes. Keep praying for the leadership of this country… Long live president Buhari, long live the federal republic of Nigeria.

  17. This PMB led government is not serious. Why do they have to go abroad to dispel the ‘rumour’. There is obvious cover-up here.

  18. Why addresing people in Poland , why not in Nigeria and why is he saying this now because election is by the corner

  19. All these rumors are political propaganda. We want peace and tranquility in this country not some baseless rumors.

  20. Why addressing us in Poland? Why do people wish you were dead? When these questions are answered we will know the real you.

  21. This comments about double Buhari is hilarious. Do they think people will just look on and not unearth this if true? Funny people in this country.

  22. I think it’s better for him to come and tell us here in Nigeria and not overseas where we can’t see our own president.

  23. Who and who did you address in Poland? Is Poland your country that you left Nigeria to Poland to address what is happening here?? Besides, we are only seeing a twit.

  24. If a lie is concealed for decades, one very day the truth will be unveiled. I pray that happens soon even before election.

  25. Is Poland your country that you left Nigeria to Poland to address what is happening here?? Besides, we are only seeing a twitt so serious.

  26. All this rumors are political issues let’s try to understand this country where by you have to destroy people’s ambition for personal interest

  27. It will not be your portion in Jesus name, Long life and prosperity in Jesus name Amen

  28. Buhari, whether cloned or not,is not what we are interested in, our concern is for you to carry out your duty efficiently and effectively to make Nigeria a better place for everyone simple.

  29. Who are u talking to. Nigerians or polish? If u have any thing to say come and tell us here in Nigeria and invite Jubril Aminu of Sudan to stand with you as two of address us and prove us wrong.

  30. hahahahahahaha Nigeria president nor be small thing o. well is not your fault shall. better plan well this time around in the coming election

  31. For those insisting that the president is dead should endeavor to chat their vote come 2019 so as to. Send him out of office, if none will continue staying there.

  32. Well his speech in Poland is not a proof that he it is the real him. He knows obviously that many Nigerians don’t like him.

  33. The President himself has spoken and am not ready to be cracking my head to know whether is true or not because the whoke rumour sounds incredible to me.

  34. This doesn’t override the possibility of a body-double – a doppelganger, but cloning is an uninformed thought.
    A Clone needs years to grow.
    You can’t have an adult clone.

  35. I don’t know why people like to carry fake news around that buhari is cloned, this actually started from all those ipob members, something they are not sure of

  36. No need for the explanation,the truth will soon unfold. Imagine at his age a president,please go and rest

  37. You will soon celebrate your 76th birthday and you’re still campaigning for a second year… If really you’re not cloned, at least let someone else take over the Nigerian presidency. Civil servants retire at 60, why are you refusing to retire???

  38. At 76 he still wanna gain power. He should go and relax jare. And for those who spread rumour like it’s their daily meal, Buhari have made it clear in Poland that he is not clone

  39. To me it does not matter whether he addresses us here in Nigeria or not our prayer should be that he should be the real buhari ruling us

  40. I really can’t understand this habit of addressing Nigeria’s issues in front of audiences in Europe & America. So, Buhari had to go to Poland to do this? It’s just so off & disrespectful of Nigerians. Poland didn’t vote for him; Nigerians in Nigeria did.

  41. This issue of cloning is really confusing me,why is he talking about this cloning from Poland.Hope it’s not true.

  42. Why does the president always address the country outside nigeria . The rumour has being going on for a long time and addressing now outside nigeria is not right

  43. I don’t think our president is a clone however all the promises he made during his campaign he couldn’t fulfill one.

  44. Its jusy a rumour….but how he went from a feeble man we use y know to a strong man…is simply God’s handwork..

  45. And why did UE not address us here in Nigeria before travelling to Poland he only function well when he his out of the country

  46. I don’t know why our politicians can go to any length to achieve their political aims. How can he be cloned. Nnamdi Kanu and FFK thought we’re mumu like them

  47. Abi u can now confirmed it from the horse mouth Mr president himself. God has put kanu to shame no show for Nigeria oo.

  48. Buhari buhari if we keep thinking about this man and keeping him in the news we are actually keeping him in power

  49. All tides conspiracy theories sef, and some people actually believe it’s a clone that is there, Nawaoo
