Presidency Denies Plot To Install Interim Government, Says Election Will Hold

The Presidency has described as untrue, the claim that President Muhammadu Buhari is working towards an interim government, assuring that elections will hold as planned.

Presidential spokesman, Garba Shehu, said the talk of interim government and truncation of democracy is way off the mark.

While admitting that there is a problem with the way the currency swap has gone, the presidential media aide said the way to go is not to panic.

According to the presidential spokesman, the President is concerned with this problem and had already opened several avenues for consultation with leaders and groups across the country, which culminated in his broadcast to the nation on Thursday morning.

Shehu’s statement followed a claim by Kaduna State Governor, Nasir El-Rufai, that the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor, Godwin Emefiele, and his supporters within the Presidency plan to make life difficult for Nigerians.
