Femi Adesina: Buhari Never Promised To Make One Naira Equivalent To One Dollar

The Presidency has said President Muhammadu Buhari never promised to make one naira equivalent to one dollar.

Femi Adesina, a presidential spokesman, described the claim as fake and false. “It does not exist, it is fake, it is false, it is apocryphal, it doesn’t”, Adesina said on Channels Television’s Sunday Politics.

Some Nigerians insist Buhari and the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) made the promise during the 2015 election campaign.

The issue is also regularly debated on social media. Currently, a dollar is being exchanged at N480 at the black market despite the official rate of below-N400.

The exchange rate of the Nigerian currency is the major reason behind the calls for naira devaluation.

Last week, Godwin Emefiele, Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), attributed the rising inflationary trend to insecurity.

Emefiele also attributed the hike in petrol pump price, electricity tariff, and Naira depreciation to inflation.

Meanwhile, Femi Adesina while celebrating Buhari on his birthday said Ask for a President beleaguered from all sides, and I’ll show you Muhammadu Buhari, the ramrod straight man from Daura, in Katsina State, who turns 78 today.

In the build up to the 2015 presidential election, we used to say everything had been thrown at him as projectiles, except the kitchen sink. Permit me to update that expression.

Today, everything possible has been thrown at President Buhari, including the kitchen sink. Anything. Everything. Fake news. Hate speech. Lies. False propaganda. Evil thoughts. Malediction. Odium. Opprobrium. Ogbunigwe. Ogulutu.Surface to air missiles. All offensive weapons. But the man trudges on. Calmly, sedately, peacefully.

If only more Nigerians knew this President. If only they knew the essential Buhari, the quintessential patriot and gentleman, they would behave differently, handle him with more care, and show him more kindness. Yes, everyone needs kindness, even Presidents. Remember that song by Mary Mc Kee and The Genesis?
