2023: CBN Governor, Emefiele breaks silence on presidential ambition

Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, Godwin Emefiele has reacted to viral report on his intention to run for the presidency in the 2023 election.

Emefiele, in a thread on his verified Twitter page, on Saturday, said he was yet to take a stand.

He said he would use his hard earned savings to fund the project, in compliance with Nigeria’s constitution, should he take a decision to join the contest.

“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,” he wrote.
