I’m having fun, Let people have heart attack – Emefiele on presidential bid

The CBN governor, Godwin Emefiele has noted that he is unbothered about reports surrounding his interest to run for the 2023 presidential election.

He said this on Thursday after a meeting with President Muhammadu Buhari.

Recall that support groups recently purchased forms of the All Progressives Congress (APC) for the CBN governor; he had, however, said he would purchase the form himself if he decides to contest.

Following his reaction, there have been calls for his resignation but the CBN governor later filed a case at the federal high court in Abuja, asking for a ruling allowing him to contest the 2023 presidential election.

On Wednesday, President Muhammadu Buhari, in a memo addressed to heads of agencies and parastatals — including the CBN — directed all appointees interested in contesting in the general election to resign.

Speaking on Thursday when asked by state house correspondents if he would resign, Emefiele refused to give a direct answer.

“There is no news now, but there will be news,” he said.

When asked if he was bothered about the speculations generated over his presidential aspiration; Emefiele replied “Let them have a heart attack. It’s good to have a heart attack. I am having a lot of fun.”
