Ahead of the 2023 presidential election, rumour has it that the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele may resign to contest for Nigeria’s president.

Reports cited on some media platforms say Godwin Emefiele has finalised arrangements to pursue political aspirations.

The reports allege that Emefiele informed the four deputy governors of the bank of his political ambition last December. He will run on the platform of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).

“As of August 2021, we are 100 percent sure that he will run for the position because of the overwhelming pressure from some prominent persons from the Northern part of the country who felt that he has performed well as a CBN governor", one of the reports states.

If the CBN Governor submitted his resignation letter to President Buhari this month as he told his lieutenants, he will be expected to leave office formally in April 2022 in line with the provision of the enabling act of the government banker.

However, efforts to get further information on the rumoured reports have been futile negative as Osita Nwanisobi, the spokesperson for the CBN could not be reached nor were emails responded to.
