Special Adviser to President 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.
Adesina denied this claim when he appeared on Channels TV on Sunday night, March 28.
The presenter had asked him what the president is doing to keep his promise to make dollar equal to Naira.
According to the presenter, the President at his presidential rally held 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 President 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 exist. 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
