Emefiele Supporters Endorse Him For President, Claim He’s Best Candidate

By Deborah Musa, Abuja

The Central Bank Of Nigeria(CBN), Governor, Godwin Ifeanyichukwu Emefiele, supporters,  arrived Abuja in their thousands on Saturday, at the Eagle Square, venue of the All Progressives Congress (APC)  National Convention, to show their support to the Apex Bank Governor, while they overran the Convention ground with calls for Emefiele to be endorsed as President for 2023.

The Emefiele supporters whose numbers ran into a mammoth crowd was led by the APC League of Young Professionals, Ethnic Youth Leaders’ Council and Emefiele Support Group members. 

They were made up of women, youths, young professionals and other Nigerians, who donned on Emefiele branded colourful apparels.

The group, reiterated the need for a worthy successor for President Muhammadu Buhari while claiming that Nigeria cannot afford to miss the golden opportunity of electing a financial expert and globally renowned Economist like Godwin Emefiele at this opportune time in history.

The leader of the group, Mallam Kabir Buba, speaking on behalf of  the group, described Emefiele as a technocrat, professional, patriot and a detribalized Nigerian, who is loyal to the President.

He noted that all of these qualities are the ideal qualities for Nigeria’s next President to possess
He said “such a successor must be a professional, loyal to the President, a technocrat, a patriot, and detribalized Nigeria, one who has been part of the progress recorded in this administration, a less controversial leader.

“Most importantly, a unifier and peacebuilder, someone to douse the south-south quest for one more term and satisfy the Igbo agitations for the presidency”.

According to the group, Emefiele fits the bill and is the man to continue, consolidate and expand the progressive legacies of Mr. President”.

He added that his recorded achievements are too many to mention while he reemphasized that Emefiele, being a financial expert and having worked with both political divides, the opposition, Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) and the ruling party, APC, is one of the many reasons why he is a worthy choice as Nigeria’s President.

He said “Emefiele having being appointed by the PDP, and retained by APC as the CBN Governor, has continued to show great dedication and commitment regardless of political alliances. 

Buba, emphasized the CBN Governor’s patriotism and his irrepressible commitment to the growth and development of the Nigerian economy, which makes him a worthy successor to the President. 

He added that as an experienced Economist with more than 26 years of commercial banking experience, Emefiele is well equipped to place Nigeria amongst developed and wealthy nations in the world.

He said “Over seven years as the CBN Governor, he has saved Nigeria twice from economic recession and created initiatives that target job creation with over 7 million jobs already created, poverty eradication, economic diversification, development of the Agro-sector, economic resilience, and productivity by promoting manufacturing and SMEs” Mallam Buba claimed.

For them, he is the man who understands the country’s needs and is already a part of the recorded progress in this administration.

They then called on President Muhammadu Buhari to endorse Mr. Emefiele and urged all APC leaders and Delegates to be ready to elect the man they believe checks all the boxes on what Nigeria needs in a President.
