The Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr Godwin Emefiele, says his focus at the moment is to formulate a robust monetary policy and fight inflation which has become a global phenomenon.

Emefiele, who said this on his official Twitter account on Monday, added that part of his focus is also to build a strong financial system in an increasingly uncertain global economy.

Persecondnews reports that his tweet is in reaction to calls for him to run for the presidency in the 2023 elections.

The CBN boss listed his other areas of preoccupation as development finance and supporting farmers and manufacturers in the bank’s self-sufficiency and import substitution, as well as raising N15 trillion for Infrastructure Corporation of Nigeria (InfraCo) infrastructure finance.

He also disclosed that the apex bank is building a world-class international financial centre in Lagos.

“My focus at this time is a robust monetary policy and fighting inflation which is now a global problem, building a strong financial system in an increasingly uncertain global economy.

‘’Development finance and supporting farmers and manufacturers in our self-sufficiency and import substitution drive, raising N15 trillion for InfraCo infrastructure finance, building a world class international financial centre in Lagos, as we support the Muhammadu Buhari administration to finish strong,” he tweeted.

Persecondnews recalls that different interest groups in their public campaigns have urged the CBN Governor to contest the office of the President in the forthcoming 2023 general poll.

Also, various groups of youths from across the country had stormed the venue of the APC convention in Abuja on Saturday, and called on Emefiele to declare his presidential ambition without further delay.
