Emefiele Not Resigning Or Contesting For Presidency – CBN

The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has dissociated itself from a report by an online medium claiming that CBN Governor Godwin Emefiele may resign his position to contest for 2023 Presidential election.

The report said Emefiele would most likely resign his position to join the presidential race this January.

But LEADERSHIP findings yesterday showed that the report was false as senior officials of the bank told our reporter that there was nothing of such, at least for now.

CBN spokesman Osita Nwasinobi who spoke exclusively to LEADERSHIP said the report was a distraction from the CBN’s focus on it’s mandate of minding monetary policies, financial stability and supporting government programmes.
