By Nkoli Opara (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – According to the Presidency, claims that President Muhammadu Buhari promised to make one naira equal to one dollar are concocted by enemies of his administration.
This was the view of Mr. Femi Adesina, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, while speaking on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.
Speaking further, Adesina said such claims do not exist, adding that the Minister of information, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, had on several occasions challenged anybody with irrefutable proof of such a promise by the President to come forward with them.
Adesina called on Nigerians to be fair to the president and admit that things are looking up, despite the challenges confronting the country.
Adesina’s comments come on the heels of some assertions made by former Vice President Atiku Abubakar, following a recent report that tagged Nigeria as the nation with the highest unemployment rate in the world.
