CBN Governor, Emefiele, Breaks Silence On Presidential Ambition

The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, has reacted to insinuations that he has obtained the presidential nomination and declaration of interest forms of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in furtherance of his presidential ambition.

In a statement, the CBN Governor refuted claimed that he obtained the N 100 million forms and that he had already decided to run for the number one office in the land. He however acknowledged those he referred to as farmers and patriots for offering him those forms but added that he was still waiting for direction from God whether to run or not.

Parts of Emefiele’s statement read as follows:

“I am humbled by the growing interest of those asking that I run for the Office of President in the 2023 general elections: I have not come to that decision. I note and salute the sacrifices of those farmers and patriots going as far as raising personal funds and offering me Presidential Nomination Forms: I thank them most profusely.

“However, Should I answer their calls and decide to seek presidential nomination, I will use my own hard earned savings from over 35 years of banking leadership to buy my own Nomination Forms, without proxies in an open and transparent manner in full compliance with the laws and Constitution of The Federal Republic of Nigeria.”

“And should I not run for elected office, I will continue to serve and sacrifice for the good people of Nigeria under the able leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari. This is a serious decision that requires God’s Divine intervention: in the next few days The Almighty will so direct.”
