The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) ,. Godwin Emefiele has clarified the reports circulating around about his 2023 presidential ambition, that he has picked the expression of interest and nomination forms to contest in the presidency on the platform of the ruling party, All Progressive Congress, APC.

The CBN Governor, Emefiele on Saturday via his verified twitter account, said he’s yet to decide on the 2023 presidency and the decision will be taken in few days, TORCH NEWS learnt.

The statement reads;

“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”


TORCH NEWS gathered that Emefiele had earlier been rumoured to join the 2023 presidency to succeed President Muhammed Buhari.
