A former aide to ex-President Goodluck Jonathan, Reno Omokri has said that Godwin Emefiele, the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, is innocent and does not actually want to run in the 2023 presidency.

The CBN Governor had on Monday, after the All Progressives Congress, APC’s national convention, said he was focused on strengthening the nation’s economy.

This is amid calls by those who are said to be his supporters that he should enter for the nation’s topmost office in 2023.

Hundreds of such supporters had thronged the APC convention a week ago and openly campaigned for the CBN boss to be elected Nigeria’s next president.

Only yesterday, photographs of campaign vehicles branded with Emefiele’s image flooded the social media.

But Emefiele has not declared to run for the presidency in 2023, making it unclear who was responsible for the campaign vehicles.

And this situation has generated a lot of criticisms from concerned Nigerians, with many calling on him to resign immediately in order to focus on his presidential bid.

But Omokri now feels otherwise.
