A support group, Emefiele Mobilization Team (EMT) says the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Dr Godwin Emefiele, remains focused on delivering on his mandate as governor of the bank.
The group’s spokesperson, Bashir Mohammed, said this in Abuja, while reacting to claims by certain Civil Society Organisations (CSOs) that the CBN governor was involved in politics.
According to him, contrary to the claims of the CSOs, Mr. Emefiele has not been involved in any political activity, and so has not compromised the bank in any way.
Mr. Mohammed said the CBN governor had not stated or indicated in any way that he was interested in vying for the position of the president.
He further said that Mr. Emefiele remained solely focused on ensuring monetary and price stability, maintaining external reserves, providing economic and financial advice to the Federal Government and promoting a sound financial system in Nigeria.
