2023: CBN Gov, Emefiele Dispels Presidential Ambition Rumours

The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Mr Godwin Emefiele, has dispelled widespread rumours that he would be contesting for office of the president in the 2023 general elections .

This is coming on the heels of widespread, diverse reactions to his purported purchase of the All Progressives Congress (APC) Nomination and Expression of Interest forms valued N100million.

Three interest groups, the Rice Farmers Association of Nigeria (RIFAN), “Friends of Emefiele ” and “Emefiele Support Group ” had purchased the forms on his behalf.

Reacting through his verified twitter handle, Emefiele said that, should he decide to contest for the political office, he would prefer to use his personal resources.

He said that he would continue to serve the country in his capacity as CBN governor until he received divine counsel to contest for a higher office. .
