Before I start, I would like to explain what cloning is Human cloning is the creation of a genetically identical copy (or clone) of a human. The term is generally used to refer to artificial human cloning, which is the reproduction of human cells and tissue. Two commonly discussed types of theoretical human cloning are therapeutic cloning and reproductive cloning. Therapeutic cloning would involve cloning cells from a human for use in medicine and transplants while reproductive cloning would involve making an entire cloned human, instead of just specific cells or tissues. And in this case, we cannot and will never refer to Jubril Al-Sudani, the present president of Nigeria parading himself as Buhari as a clone. On a more closer study of this, one will realize that the impostor Jubril can never be a clone for these reasons: If he was a clone he would look just like the real Buhari and not like an entirely different person. Cloning doesn't happen so quickly as when they recruited Jubril. It's just like giving birth to a baby and making him grow up. It doesn't happen within months. It will take years. And I don't think human cloning has become a success. A cloned Buhari will not have different organ sizes and shapes like Jubril's. A cloned Buhari should by now be either a baby or yet to be born. Not a full-fledged man like Jubril. A cloned Buhari will have the same DNA composition with the original as cloning has to do with DNA manipulation and duplicating. So they have to prove their claim of Jubril being Buhari by openly saying their DNA results. While on the other hand, Firstly, the imposter Jubril is shorter than the original person he is impersonating. He is a totally different individual pretending to be someone else. It's like Dwayne Johnson pretending to be Hercules in a movie. The impostor Jubril is right-handed while the dead Buhari is left handed. The impostor Jubril has a different ear Lobe and antihelix from the original and dead Buhari. Jubril is now healthier and more energetic than the late Buhari he is impersonating. He is much younger and full of life than the already very old and dying Buhari that we knew in 2015. Jubril cannot relate well with the family of the deceased Buhari as the late Buhari he is impersonating. So in summary, Jubril can never be Buhari or his clone. The only thing that might possibly be a clone of Buhari in Jubril is the ear that is growing at the back of a mice inside the laboratory. And just like it should be, it's still growing and not yet ready. So we cannot say a complete human clone is ready when even just a clone ear is not yet ready.
