The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele says he has not decided to run for Nigeria’s presidency just yet.

Emefiele made this known in a series of tweets via his official Twitter handle. This is coming after a coalition of support groups raised funds to get him the APC Presidential Nomination form.

The governor of the apex bank said in the tweets that he was humbled by those asking him to run for president, but added that he’ll rather use his personal money if he decides to run.

‘’Should I answer their calls and decide to seek presidential nomination, I will use my own hard earned savings from over 35 years of banking leadership to buy my own Nomination Forms, without proxies in an open and transparent manner in full compliance with the laws and Constitution of The Federal Republic of Nigeria,” he tweeted on Sunday afternoon.

He noted that running for president was a ‘’serious decision that requires God’s Divine intervention.’’
