The Minister of Labour and Employment, Dr. Chris Ngige, has described as “gutter talk” the allegation that President Muhammadu Buhari is cloned.
Ngige disclosed this during a chat with reporters in Obosi , Idemili North Local Government Area of Anambra State over the weekend.
The minister said that the rumours of the president’s death and alleged cloning were being spread by his political detractors.
He enjoined Nigerians to support Buhari’s second term bid to enable him build on the solid foundations he has laid in every facet of the nation’s socioeconomic life.
Ngige said, “ I’ m talking to you as a medical doctor . If you are well treated by your doctor , you will be rejuvenated. That’ s the case with Buhari . That is why he is bubbling with life . His doctors treated him well .
“ I see him regularly. He ’ s the Buhari who worked as minister of petroleum; he is the Buhari who was the head of state of this country. He remembers all these.
“ I ask our people to come out en masse and vote massively for him in the 2019 elections. We should stop listening to all these gutter talks .
“ Truth to God , the man in Aso Rock is Buhari and no other person . I see him regularly.
“ He’ s the man that employed us as ministers and we meet with him during the FEC meetings . ”
