2023 Presidency: Group Calls CBN Governor to Contest

A group, the Unified Northern Forum, has called on the governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria CBN, Godwin Emefiele, to contest for the 2023 presidency.

The group Convener, Mohammed Salie Danlami, made the call, Thursday during a news conference in Ilorin, Kwara state.

He noted that since the politicians and former military leaders have failed the country, Emefiele, who is a core professional and bureaucrat will be able to help Nigeria.

Danlami stressed that the nation needs a professional like the CBN governor who would make the country better and greater and frontally tackle the current challenges without any political bias.

He said, “it is high time the youths across the 19 Northern states of the country support a technocrat and the current Central Bank of Nigeria Governor, Dr Godwin Emefiele, to come out to contest the nation’s presidency come 2023 to add more values to the socio-economic stability of the country.

He said, “As we can see, the politicians have failed us, ditto for our retired and past military leaders. Our challenges are becoming more monstrous every day because of the lack of capacity and the political will to tackle them. We cannot continue to do the same thing and expect different results, so we need to change the narrative.

“The coming out of Mr Godwin Emefiele to seek the mandate of the Nigerians at this point remains a great honour that would change the political calculations of the perceived cabals that have been ruling the nation.

Danlami also that, “It will be unpatriotic for Emefiele to reject the call because we have made contacts to all that matters in the northern parts of the country, and they have supported our move.

“He should respect the sacrifice we are presently making during Ramadan to go across the states campaigning for him and heed our call.

“Emefiele is the kind of person that Nigerians need to add values to the people’s lives, and if  Emefiele comes out to contest, he will make life more bearable to all Nigerians”.

Danlami added that “no other person would be better than Emefiele who had seen it all having risen to the peak of the governor of CBN, unblemished without being sacked. 

“Other options have failed us, and this is the time to look into a private sector personality and technocrat like Dr Godwin Emefiele that we need to trust for the nation’s presidency to provide purposeful leadership to the nation.

“He is a Deltan and has worked for the country’s economic growth since his emergence as the CBN Governor of Nigeria.

“Emefiele’s interventions of about 37 in numbers are masses oriented ones that have allowed Nigerian youths to benefit without any considerations, which has reduced the poverty level of average Nigerian youth.

“As a northerner, Agriculture is the mainstay of the economy, and Emefiele’s interventions in the sector have moved up to all the parts of the nation.

“Emefiele is the only technocrat that can bail masses out of the current challenges in the nation

“All the country’s sectors will flourish if he comes out and vies for the nation’s presidency. There are no right candidates in Nigeria today.

“They are politicians that wanted to amass wealth. They don’t want us to move forward but to further their interest”.

Danlami, therefore, urged Dr Emefiele to answer the clarion call and contest for the number one seat to provide purposeful leadership for the teeming Nigerians.
