A group drumming support for the presidential aspiration of the Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Godwin Emefele, the Emefiele Support Group (ESG) on Tuesday took a swipe at state governors elected on the platform of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for accusing Emefiele of spending billions of naira on his 2023 presidential campaign.
The group which has actively been campaigning for Emefiele threatened to expose the governors and the looting of state resources if they did not stop the unnecessary attacks.
The group’s position was contained in a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja by its Director of Communications, Benigna Ejimba.
The statement read, “We urge the PDP state governors to stop crying like babies even when Dr Emefiele has not told anybody that he would run for any office come 2023.
“We know that the governors are already scared that Emefiele will give them a good run for their money if he decides to heed our call and contest. That is why they have switched into panic mode and are looking for a way to scare him from joining the race.

“They should however know that we have their dossiers. We know what they do with their local governments and states allocation. We know what they do with the money meant for small scale businesses in their states.
“Really, we pity the PDP state governors who are scared to run against Emefiele because of his capacity.
“They have been having sleepless nights since they heard of our clamour for Emefiele to join the race. The CBN governor has become their political nightmare even when he is not yet in the race.
“We make bold to say that if and when Emefiele heeds our calls to contest, these governors should be ready for a humiliating defeat.”
