CBN governor, Emefiele, opens up on 2023 presidency

Hours after Nigerians poured out reactions on the purchase of his All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential forms ahead of 2023 general elections, Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Governor Godwin Emefiele has outrightly rejected the offers made by farmers in the country.

Categorically, the CBN Boss said he has not taken a stance on 2023 Presidency.

Emefiele who spoke via his Twitter handle on Saturday though thanked the farmers for their concern, said if he decides to contest, he would use his personal resources.

He said, “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.”
