CBN Governor, Emefiele, Joins Presidential Race, Picks N100m APC Forms

The Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, has picked the expression of interest and nomination forms to contest the presidential ticket of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Sources confirmed that Emefiele picked the N100 million forms from the APC National Organising Secretary at the International Conference Centre (ICC) in Abuja, on Friday morning.

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

In February 2014, former President Goodluck Jonathan appointed Emefiele, hours after he announced the suspension of his predecessor, Sanusi Lamido.

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