Godwin Emefiele, CBN Governor filled a lawsuit against INEC over alleged plan to disqualify him from presidential primaries

Godwin Emefiele, Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, has reportedly filed a case against the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) over an alleged plan to disqualify him from presidential primaries. 

Emefiele, through his lawyer, Mike Ozekhome, In court documents obtained by Daily Trust, argued that he is not a political appointee and by provision of the constitution, he is expected to resign a month before the February 25, 2023, presidential election.

Emefiele also argued that a Federal High Court in Umuahia, Abia State, had nullified section 12 (8) of the Electoral Act.

This is coming days after the CBN Governor denied purchasing a form to contest in the All Progressives Congress presidential primaries.
