Green Alliance, a political pressure group, is making a strong case for women, and the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele. They are insisting that they want the CBN chief to succeed President Muhammadu Buhari in 2023.

The group’s Director of Mobilisation, Angela Ajufor, is urging women to come out and “be confident to run for public offices, saying that as a group, they would support women to serve in public offices.
Co-convener of the group, Wale Fapohunda, says a vote for Emefiele will be a vote for the consolidation of the programmes and policies of the Buhari’s administration, adding that voting in Emefiele as Nigeria’s president in 2023, will elevate the status of the country.

According to Fapohunda, the CBN governor has been the foremost supporter of the programmes of President Buhari.

“We won’t leave the activities of the country in the hands of politicians that will destroy what the present administration has done.

“If you follow Emefiele’s activities as the CBN governor, you will see that there is nobody in this government that has supported the programmes of President Muhammadu Buhari more than Emefiele”, he observed.

Adding, he said the support could be seen in the agricultural policies the CBN boss brought, which had helped in diversifying the Nigerian economy.

“We have seen various and remarkable interventions in the agriculture sector. Nigeria has ceased from being an importer of rice to exporter of rice as a result of the monetary policy of Emefiele.

“He has supported the women and youth. All the progress Buhari has achieved in terms of infrastructural development is attributed to the CBN governor.

“On infrastructure, there is now train from Abuja to Kaduna, Ibadan to Lagos. The second Niger Bridge is 95 percent completed as a result of the monitoring policy of the CBN”, he said.

Also speaking, a co-convener of the group, Akin Osomo, called on Nigerians to give their support to Emefiele, saying that “Nigerians cannot be doing the same thing and expect different results.

“We must persuade this man. We want him to answer the call. For the love we have for our country, we need to do something different.

“We must try someone who has performed both in public and the private sector. Emefiele should answer the call”, Osomo said.

Driven by this philosophy, our aim has been to create a platform where every voice, every narrative – provided they are decently expressed –  is allowed expression. Our belief is that by promoting unfettered competition of ideas, the truth will eventually emerge. Obviously, doing this while resisting any temptation to be captured by any special interest or tendency makes survival as an online newspaper more challenging.
