The Presidency has said that there was not a time when the current administration promised to make one naira become equivalent to one dollar.
Mr. Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, said the claims suggesting that President Muhammadu Buhari made such a promise, are false.
“It does not exist, it is fake, it is false, it is apocryphal, it doesn’t” Mr Adesina stated while appearing as a guest on Channels TV Sunday Politics.
Meanwhile, President Muhammadu Buhari had on the 23rd of March, 2015 promised to make one dollar equal to one naira.
Buhari made the promise during the South-East presidential rally of the party at Dan Anyima Stadium, Owerri.
In his words “It is sad that the value of the naira has dropped to more than N230 to one dollar; this does not speak well for the nation’s economy,’’
