Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Mr. Godwin Emefiele, met with the President at the State House, Abuja yesterday. The visit happened after President Muhammadu Buhari asked all political appointees that have ambitions to vie for any position in the 2023 general elections to resign on or before Monday, May 16, 2022.
It would be recalled that Minister of Labour and Employment, Senator Chris Ngige, had on Wednesday, told Vanguard that the President while giving the order to cabinet members, also said anyone that needed any clarification should meet him.
Although the agenda of his closed-door meeting with the President was not made public, when asked about his reaction to the President’s directive, 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.”
Reminded that the international community, as well as Nigerians, were interested in his position regarding the presidential directive, the CBN governor said he was not bothered by their concern, adding that he was having fun while those concerned were free to have a heart attack.
