It reads:

“My attention has just been drawn to a spurious online publication alleging that I recently made comments on the state of the nation’s economy.”

“This falsehood must have sprung from the writer’s imagination, as I was neither at any forum requiring my interventions on the state of the economy, nor met with any group of newsmen, as claimed in the write-up.”

“I will simply urge Nigerians to disregard such fabrication, and rather concentrate on working for the good of our nation.”

President Muhammadu Buhari has been frequently criticized over the current state of the economy with many faulting his decision not to devalue the naira.
