The Socio-Economic Rights and Accountability Project, SERAP, has demanded the resignation of Godwin Emefiele, the Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria, CBN, after picking the All Progressive Congress nomination form.

The group said this via Twitter statement on Friday.
The tweet read: “BREAKING: Following reports that the CBN governor Mr Godwin Emefiele has picked the APC N100m presidential nomination form, we urge him to immediately resign his position in line with S. 9 of the CBN Act.
