Buhari is unaware of promises made to Nigerians by support groups in 2015 – Adesina

President Muhammadu Buhari's spokesperson, Femi Adesina has said that his principal is not aware of some of the promises made by some support groups to get him elected in 2015. 

Commenting on some of the promises made during the 2015 campaign during an interview on Channels Television on Thursday, April 27, Adesina insisted that what happened in 2015 was that there was a rash of documents passing off as the All Progressives Party manifesto. 

He said; “What happened in 2015 was that there was a rash of documents passing off as the party’s manifesto.

“You didn’t know which one was from the party or a support group. For instance, there was a document, ‘100 things Buhari will do in 100 days’. It was when I resumed as his media adviser that I asked him about that document and he knew nothing about it.

“I’m not strictly a party person, so I do not know if some promises are part of the manifesto. But I know that each party would have promises before being elected into power and whoever is elected to power must key into those promises.

“What I’m telling you is that as at 2015, there were various types of documents which even the party didn’t know because there were many support groups who came out with their own promises.”

Adesina added that Buhari couldn’t fulfill some of his pre-election pledge due to sad economic realities.

He said; “A country can only spend the money it has, it can’t spend the money it doesn’t have. When the realities of the economy change, you have to adjust and do what you are able to do according to the realities of the economy.”
