Claims Buhari Promised to Make One Naira Equal to One Dollar Fake – Presidency

The Presidency has rubbished claims that President Muhammadu Buhari administration had at any point in time promised to make one naira equivalent to one dollar.

The Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina said that such promise was never made and tagged reports of claiming otherwise as fake.

Adesina stated this when he featured as a guest on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.

He said, “It does not exist, it is fake, it is false, it is apocryphal, it doesn’t exist.”

Adesina said the minister of information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, debunked the claim many times and challenged anyone with clips and publications to make them available.

Reacting to negative criticisms directed at the president and the administration, Mr. Adesina said Nigerians must stop dwelling solely on the negatives if the country is to forge ahead in the progressive path.

His comments trail the assertions made by former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, following a recent report that tagged Nigeria as the nation with the world’s highest unemployment rate.

Atiku in a statement issued on Sunday said the present Nigerian government could not address issues facing the country.

He urged stakeholders and elder statesmen to help in rescuing Nigeria, which he noted is on the precipice.

In his reaction to Atiku and responding to the report, Adesina maintained that all nations in the world experience negatives. If that becomes a focus, then there will be many more to talk about.

He, however, declared that there are also many positives in Nigeria, adding that Nigerians must look out for the cheery reports and encourage themselves.
