LAGOS, Nigeria (AP) — Nigeria’s president took the extraordinary step of denying rumors that he died and was replaced by a body double, telling the country that he is alive and well.

“It is the real me I assure you,” President Muhammadu Buhari said Sunday to a group of Nigerians during a visit to Poland, where he is attending the United Nations Climate Conference.

“A lot of people hoped that I died during my ill health,” Buhari said. “I am still going strong.”
