Godwin Emefiele, Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), is seriously preparing for the presidency in 2023, despite having not officially declared his intention.
The CBN governor’s branded vehicles have gone viral on social media, setting tongues wagging.
Emefiele’s body language suggests that he is serious about succeeding President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.
Even though he is still the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, he has been sponsoring some pressure groups to drum up support for his ambition.
Some groups have urged him to make his intentions known to Nigerians, but he has not done so; instead, he is working behind the scenes.
The branded vehicles are all over Twitter.
Angry Nigerians accuse him of using Nigerian funds to campaign for his presidential bid.
Al Ameen, a Twitter user, responded, saying, “The worst CBN Governor in Nigerian history wants to run for President.”
The same person who murdered Naira aided in the destruction of our economy by prohibiting direct bank transfers to crypto wallets. “I don’t believe any reasonable Nigerian will vote for Godwin Emefiele.”
“It’s actually insane that a CBN Governor is planning to run under a political party while still being a CBN Governor,” Ustadh Jake says. This is ridiculous; our country has an institutional problem.”
“This is a CBN Governor engaging in big time politics!” says Udoh. This is the case.
