BREAKING: CBN Governor Emefiele picks N100 million APC presidential nomination form


Governor Godwin Emefiele of the Central Bank of Nigeria has picked up the presidential nomination form of the ruling All Progressives Congress.

Mr Emefiele’s nomination form was picked up on Friday, Peoples Gazette has learnt.

A spokesman for Mr Emefiele did not return a request seeking comments, and the CBN governor himself declined comments.

The development all but confirms Mr Emefiele’s readiness to contest the 2023 presidential race, and puts to rest speculation about whether or not he would join partisan politics while leading the nation’s central bank. He is the first central bank governor to join active politics and seek an elective position while in office.
