Amidst repeated denials, Central Bank Godwin Emefiele has been exposed as warming up to run for president under APC, in breaches of extant regulations.

The party’s expression of interest and nomination forms was on Friday purchased on his behalf. Mr Emefiele said a group of farmers did so without his behest as he will only decide his political future in the days ahead.
