UPDATED: Emefiele has not been sacked, says CBN

UPDATE: The Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has debunked the rumoured report that Governor Godwin Emefiele has been sacked by the Federal Government of Nigeria.

The news was debunked by the CBN’s Head of Communications, Osita Nwanisiobi, in the late hours of Wednesday.

According to him, it is a rumour, and he is not aware of any sack. In his words, he said; “I heard it just the way you got it too. As far as I am concerned, it’s a rumour, I’m not aware of any sack”

Godwin Emefiele was engulfed in controversies after expressing genuine interest in becoming the next president of Nigeria and does not wish to resign his position before contesting.

After several outcry by the public, calling for his resignation shortly after purchasing the N100m form of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Emefiele approached a Federal High Court in Abuja to prevent the country’s electoral body INEC from disqualifying him.

President Buhari in a response to the expression of interest by his appointees ordered the resignation of every one of his cabinet members interested in vying for political offices in 2023.

While some of his appointees obeyed the order, many including the Governor of the CBN failed to resign.

On Tuesday, the CBN governor withdrew the suit he filed against the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) and the Attorney-General of the Federation over his presidential ambition.
