Godwin Emefiele

Godwin Emefiele, the governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, has sued INEC over alleged plan to disqualify him from the coming APC presidential election primaries, which will determine the flag bearer of the party.

 

In court documents obtained by Daily Trust, Emefiele, through his lawyer, Mike Ozekhome, argued that he is not a political appointee and by provision of the constitution, he is expected to resign a month before the February 25, 2023, presidential election.

 

He also argued that a Federal High Court in Umuahia, Abia State, had nullified section 12 (8) of the Electoral Act.

 

This is coming days after the CBN Governor denied purchasing a form to contest in the All Progressives Congress presidential primaries.
