The attention of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) has been drawn to a story published in The  Nation newspaper of Monday, March 13, 2023 edition, alleging that the Governor, Mr Godwin Emefiele has launched a “fresh plot against President-elect”.

According to the CBN’s Acting Director, Corporate Communications, Isa Abdulmumin, “the aforementioned story went further to allege that the Governor has made certain amount of money available to a political aspirant ahead of March 18, 2023 gubernatorial poll. 
“We wish to inform members of the public that this story is completely false and malicious as the Governor does not know and has never met or even spoke with Mr Gbadebo Rhodes Vivour either in person or through proxy.”
The apex bank further said, “we wish to reiterate that the CBN Governor does not take part in Politics and therefore urge anyone with contrary information to prove the Governor wrong should provide such facts. 
As such the Governor and team at the CBN  should be allowed to focus on their assigned job with a view to achieving statutory mandates of the Bank.
