CBN Governor Sues INEC Over Alleged Plan To Disqualify Him From Election
Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) governor Godwin Emefiele has reportedly sued Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) over an alleged plan to disqualify him.
A group of farmers on Friday bought the expression of interest and nomination forms for Emefiele to contest the presidential ticket on the platform of the All Progressives Congress (APC).
The CBN governor later said he has not decided whether or not he will be contesting for the office of the president in the 2023 general elections.
“I note and salute the sacrifices of those farmers and patriots going as far as raising personal funds and offering me presidential nomination forms: I thank them most profusely,” Emefiele said.
“However, should I answer their calls and decide to seek presidential nomination, I will use my own hard-earned savings to buy my own nomination forms.
“I will do so without proxies, in an open and transparent manner in full compliance with the laws and Constitution of The Federal Republic of Nigeria.”
