The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria; Mr.
Godwin Emefiele has taken to his social media pages to clarify that he has not decided to contest and that he will get back to the general public in the next few days.
Naijacrawl has earlier reported that a group has obtained the 100M APC form on behalf of the CBN governor, a situation that has generated a lot of criticism.
The CNB governor writes:
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.
