Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, on Saturday said he is yet to make a final decision on whether to run for the office of President of Nigeria under the banner of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the 2023 election.
Saying that “it is a serious decision that requires God’s Divine intervention,” Emefiele said in series of Tweets that the final decision will be made “in the next few days.”
Emefiele said: “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.”
But the final decision on the Presidential forms of N100 million of the APC bought on his on Friday will be made “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.”
