Presidential media aide, Femi Adesina, has said that Nigeria’s President Muhammadu Buhari never promised to make one Naira equal to one dollar.
He debunked the claims during a Channels TV programme on Sunday, when the presenter asked him what the president is doing to keep his promise to make dollar equal to Naira.
According to the presenter, Buhari at his presidential rally in 2014, at the Dan Anyiam Stadium in Imo state, had promised to ensure equality in both currencies, but in his five years in office, Nigerians have instead seen an increase in the dollar to Naira exchange rate.
Responding, Adesina said Buhari never made such a promise.
”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.
