In a statement released on his Twitter handle, Emefiele said he has not decided to run for the office of President of Nigeria despite the purchase of the nomination and expression of interest forms by 3 interest groups on his behalf on Friday. He stated that he is humbled by the show of love by the groups but said if he decides to run for President of Nigeria, the forms will be purchased with his hard-earned savings from his over 35 years of service in the banking sector.

His statement reads

I am humbled by the growing interest of those asking that I run for the Office of President in the 2023 general elections: I have not come to that decision.

I note and salute the sacrifices of those farmers and patriots going as far as raising personal funds and offering me Presidential Nomination Forms: I thank them most profusely. However, Should I answer their calls and decide to seek presidential nomination, I will use my own hard earned savings from over 35 years of banking leadership to buy my own Nomination Forms, without proxies in an open and transparent manner in full compliance with the laws and Constitution of The Federal Republic of Nigeria. And should I not run for elected office,

I will continue to serve and sacrifice for the good people of Nigeria under the able leadership of President Muhammadu Buhari. This is a serious decision that requires God’s Divine intervention: in the next few days The Almighty will so direct.”
