CBN Gov, Godwin Emefiele Picks APC Presidential Forms


The Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, has picked the expression of interest and nomination forms of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the 2023 elections.

Emefiele picked the N100 million Presidential forms from the party’s Organising Secretary at the International Conference Centre (ICC) in Abuja, on Friday.

This puts to rest the speculations on his interest in succeeding President Muhammadu Buhari.

Emefiele is expected to officially declare his interest on Saturday 7th May, 2022

In 2014, former President Goodluck Jonathan appointed Emefiele, hours after suspending his predecessor, Sanusi Lamido.

In 2019, the former Managing Director of Zenith Bank made history as the first CBN governor to be reappointed.

In February when a ‘group of his friends’, tagged ‘Friends of Godwin Emefiele’, visited him to discuss the controversy over his presidential ambition in 2023, Emefiele had said it was in the hands of God.

“Given that it’s God that anoints leaders, he will leave his faith (sic) firmly in the hands of God,” he was quoted to have said.
