2023: Nigerians Can Have Heart Attack, I’m Having Fun – Emefiele

Governor Godwin Emefiele of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) says he is having fun with the whole drama around his 2023 ambition.

Emefiele said this while responding to questions from State House reporters after a closed door meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari at the Presidential Villa in Abuja, on Thursday.

Asked about his reaction to the report that the President had asked him to resign after the purchase of the presidential nomination and expression of interest forms of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Emefiele said: “There is no news now, but there will be news. You heard me, I said there is no news but there will be news.”

But when told that Nigerians were anxious about his position, he said: “Let them have heart attack. It’s good to have heart attack. I am having a lot of fun.”

Emefiele’s assertion comes barely 24 hours after the President ordered members of his cabinet vying for various elective positions to resign on or before May 16, 2022. Also, a circular signed by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha, with reference number SGF/OP/ I/S.3/XII/ 173, titled, ‘Ministers, heads of government agencies, ambassadors and other appointees with political ambitions to resign’, ordered all heads of agencies, departments, parastatals, and ambassadors with political ambitions to resign.
