President Buhari Never Promised to Make One Naira Equal to One Dollar, Says Femi Adesina
Special Adviser to President Muhammadu Buhari on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has said that President Buhari never made an electoral promise that he will make one Naira equal to one dollar.
Speaking Channels TV on 28th March 2021, the presenter had asked about steps being taken by the president to keep to his promise on making the dollar equal to the Naira in line with his campaign promise at the presidential rally held at the Dan Anyiam Stadium in Imo state as Nigerians have instead seen an increase in the dollar to Naira exchange rate.
In his response, Adesina said such a saying is fake as the president Buhari never made such promise. his words;
”What you just said does not exist, it is fake, it is false, it is apocryphal, it doesn’t exit. The Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, has debunked that before. It doesn’t exist. It was never said.
If it was said, there should be clips, there should be publications. It was never said. I challenge you to make the clip available where that promise was made” he said
