The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele has described as a lie, reports that he has launched a fresh plot against the President-elect, Bola Tinubu.
Some publications noted that Emefiele deliberately disobeyed the Supreme Court judgment that the old N500 and N1000 notes remain legal tender until December 31 and is working towards influencing the March 18 governorship election in Lagos State against the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC).
But a statement signed by Acting Director Corporate Communications, CBN, Isa Abdulmumin, described the report as “false and malicious”.
The statement noted that Emefiele has never met or spoken with governorship candidate of Labour Party, Gbadebo Rhodes-Vivour who the report claimed was enjoying the CBN governor’s support.
The statement reiterated that the “CBN Governor does not take part in politics and therefore urge anyone with contrary information to prove the Governor wrong by providing any facts.”
