Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Godwin Emefiele, has picked the All Progressives Congress N100m presidential nomination and expression of interest form.

9news Nigeria reports that Emefele picked up the form on Friday in the Federal Capital Territory.

9news Nigeria had seen a video showing masked men with guns endorsing the CBN Governor.

When contacted on Friday for a reaction, a leader of the Emefiele Mobilisation Team, Attah Jacob, in a telephone chat with our correspondent, said, “Glory to God.”

Others who have joined the race and are expected to purchase the form include Governor Ben Ayade, Ex-Governor Adams Oshiomhole, Governor Kayode Fayemi, the Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige, former Governor Ibikunle Amosun, Senator Orji Kalu, ex-Speaker, Dimeji Bankole, and Senate President Ken Nnamani.
