The Governor of Central Bank of NIgeria, Mr. Godwin Emefiele, on Saturday broke his silence on his widely talked about 2023 presidential ambition, saying he has not yet taken a decision on it whether to run or not.

Perhaps reacting to calls by Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State and other Nigerians on him to quit his appointment as the nation's apex bank governor, Emefiele said he was humbled by the growing interest of those asking him to run for the Office of President in the 2023 general elections but said he would take decision on the matter in the next few days.

“I am humbled by the growing interest of those asking that I run for the Office of President in the 2023 general elections: I have not come to that decision. 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.

"However, should I answer their calls and decide to seek presidential nomination, I will use my own hard-earned savings from over 35 years of banking leadership to buy my own Nomination Forms without proxies in an open and transparent manner in full compliance with the laws and Constitution of The Federal Republic of Nigeria.

"And should I not run for elected office I will continue to serve and sacrifice for the good people of Nigeria under the able leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari. This is a serious decision that requires God’s divine intervention: in the next few days The Almighty will so direct,” he stated on his official Twitter handle.
