2023: Group Declares Support For Emefiele, Knock Blackmailers Over Circulated Images

By Caleb Ishaya

Ahead of 2023 presidential election, a group known as Emefiele Solidarity Vanguard, ESV, has said they are convinced if the Central Bank of Nigeria Governor Dr. Godwin Emefiele, contest for the presidential position, he will win.

The group during a World Press Conference on coordinated blackmail against the image and person of Dr.Emefiele on Monday at Barcelona hotel said, the campaign images been circulated on social media have nothing to do with the CBN governor directly, says the blackmail is an attempt to box Emefiele to the corner.

Patriot Daniel Enyi, the national coordinator said, there is no doubt that Nigerians from all quarters, the North, the South, East and West are calling on the CBN Governor to run as President in the 2023.

“We are convinced that, if he does, he will win, this is the threat where some do or die political office seekers are trying to blackmail him. Remember, this is a man who was appointed by the PDP administration of Dr. Goodluck Jonathan and was reappointed by President Muhammadu Buhari for a second term based on his dedicated service to the Nation.

“As Emefiele Solidarity Vanguard, we have thousands of posters, T-shirts, Billboards and have branded some of our individual cars in solidarity with the CBN Governor, this has nothing to do with him in person.

“We wish to make bold that, the 2023 Presidential elections is far beyond an individual as Nigeria belong to all of us.

” We firmly believed that, the economy needs a seasoned technocrat, an economist of all standard who understands monetary policy, diversification of economy as well, a patriotic Nigerian who shall improve on the security situation and consolidate the gains of the Buhari ‘s administration. This we have found in Dr. Godwin Emefiele.

“Our advice to the blackmailers is to join hands with the progressives who have gone all out in search for the best brains ahead of the 2023 general elections to convince the CBN Governor, Dr. Godwin Ifaenyichukwu Emefiele to contest the 2023 Presidential elections for a consolidated Nigeria

The group however debunked rumours that Emefiele is consulting for the presidential position

“We challenge anyone who has evidence of the CBN Governor consulting for President or any other political office to tender same before the general public.

Enyi explained that the CBN Governor is yet to accept the offer by Nigerians to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari when his tenure ends in 2023.

“We are confident that, if he makes up his mind to contest, he will declare in the open as political office seeking can not be done in a closed doors especially office of the President, of the Federal Republic of Nigeria

“We wish to assure you that Emefiele Solidarity Vanguard, ESV in collaboration with other support groups shall continue with the agitation until he(Emefiele) accept or reject the golden offer by well meaning Nigerians,” he said.
