Godwin Emefiele – I Have Not Decided On Whether To Contest Presidential Election In 2023
The Central Bank Governor, Godwin Emefiele has said that he’s yet to decide on whether contest the 2023 presidential election.
Emefiele and other political appointees showing interest in the number one seat have been under serious scrutiny from the public and other government officials, asking Emefiele and others to resign their appointment.
The CBN governor said he’s humbled by those who contributed to obtaining the nomination form for him.
In his words, “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.”
