Three distinct groups have acquired the All Progressives Congress (APC) Expression of Interest and Nomination Form for Godwin Emefiele, the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), ahead of the 2023 presidential election.

Rice Farmers Association of Nigeria, Friends of Emefiele, and Emefiele Support Group have all stated that Emefiele is the only responsible and responsive candidate to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in the general election of 2023.

On Thursday in Abuja, the CBN boss was given the paperwork for N100 million.

However, the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria has not declared his intention to run for president.

Emefiele had said that he was focused on strengthening the nation’s economy amid calls by supporters that he should contest for the nation’s topmost office in 2023.

According to the groups, Nigeria is passing through a lot of economic and security challenges, and the parties and electorates must bring in experience, dynamism, energy, equity and fairness in the choice of who becomes the next President of Nigeria.

Expressing the reason for their push for Emefiele, they said the CBN governor’s tenure as head of the Nigeran apex bank, has shown capacity, focus, courage and worked tirelessly with the economic team of President Mohammadu Buhari to keep the economy of our great country afloat above recession and outright collapse.
