Presidential Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, has said debunked claims that President Buhari said he will make one Naira equal to one dollar during his presidential campaign
In an interview on Channels TV on Sunday night, March 28,2021, Adesina vehemently denied this claim in response to the presenter’s question on what the president is doing to fulfill his promise to make Naira to equal a dollar.
According to the presenter, he said during the presidential rally held at the Dan Anyiam Stadium in Imo state, the President who was a candidate at that time, had promised to strengthen the Naira against the dollars if he was voted, but unfortunately, five years into in tenure, Nigerians have instead witness massive fall of the Naira against the dollar in exchange rate.
In response, Adesina said President Buhari never in any where made such a promise and challenge anyone with clips to come forward.
In 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
