Presidency defends naira against dollar
Some months ago, Legit.ng reported that presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, claimed that in Africa only, Nigeria's economy is recording positive growth.
Shehu on Sunday, May 30, argued that the country's currency is in its best possible health against the dollar given the circumstance.
In 2015, when Buhari took over as president, the naira was N197 to $1, however, Nigeria’s currency is now N495/$1 in the parallel market.
