Emefiele breaks silence Over Attempts To Use CBN Frustrate 2023 Elections

The governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Godwin Emiefele has said that the apex will not allow itself to be used to frustrate the forthcoming general elections.

Emiefele made this known while playing host to the Chairman of Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) Prof Mahmood Yakubu and 11 National Commissioners in at the CBN’s headquarters in Abuja, on Tuesday, February 7, 2023.

Responding to a request from Yakubu that the CBN should find a way of addressing scarcity of currency across the country 17 days to the Presidential and National Assembly elections since some service providers to the commission were “unbanned,” he said the CBN will make available every cash needed to pay logistics for the success of the elections.
