Governor of the Central Bank of Nigerians (CBN) Godwin Emefiele has come out to address supporters, and also critics on his rumoured presidential ambition.
There have been calls from support groups calling on Emefiele to contest the presidential seat in 2023. Some have also printed and pasted posters urging Nigerians to vote for Emefiele in 2023.
In a series of tweets on his verified twitter handle on Monday, Emefile distanced himself from the rumours.
According to him, he is only focused on fighting inflation and designing a robust monetary policy for the country.
“My focus at this time is a robust monetary policy and fighting inflation which is now a global problem; building a strong financial system in an increasingly uncertain global economy,” the tweet reads.
“Development finance and supporting farmers & manufacturers in our self-sufficiency and import substitution drive; raising N15 trillion for InfraCo infrastructure financing;
“Building a world class International Financial Center in Lagos; as we support the @MBuhari Administration to finish strong.
