The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, has dismissed allegations that he had launched a fresh plot against the president-elect, Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu.
This information was disclosed by the CBN on its official website.
In its report, Emefiele debunks fake news by the press claiming that he is acting against the president-elect, Bola Ahmed Tinubu. In its statement, the CBN said that “the attention of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has been drawn to a story published in The Nation newspaper of Monday, March 13, 2023 edition, alleging that the Governor, Mr. Godwin Emefiele, has launched a “fresh plot against the President-elect”.
“We wish to inform members of the public that this story is completely false and malicious, as the CBN Governor does not know and has never met or even spoken with Mr. Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour, either in person or through a proxy.”
The CBN also assures the public that the CBN Governor does not take part in politics and therefore urges anyone with contrary information to prove the Governor wrong by providing any facts.
