Buhari Reveals Preferred Successor,Says Emefiele Victim Of Accusation

President Muhammadu Buhari on Tuesday declared support for the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential candidate, Asiwaju Bola Tinubu.

Buhari in an interview with Bloomberg News, when asked if he plans to endorse a candidate for President in 2023, he said “Yes,I will endorse the APC candidate for president”.

Speaking on concerns over CBN’s independence following the Governor, Godwin Emefiele’s interest to run for President in 2023, Buhari said Emefiele was a victim of accusations because as an apex bank governor he follows a model outside of the economic orthodoxy.

According to Buhari,it is only the CBN board of directors that will determine whether Emefiele’s actions have fallen foul of the laws in place to ensure he can most effectively carry out his duties.

Though the CBN governor is appointed by the President, but this appointment is subject to confirmation by the Nigerian Senate.

But there is a subtext to the accusations. Because the governor follows a model outside of the economic orthodoxy, he is labelled political. But the orthodoxy has been proved wrong time and again.

Instead, the governor is following an alternative economic model that puts people at the heart of policy. Nigeria should be free to choose its development model and how to construct our economy, so it functions for Nigerians,” he added.
