Tony Elumelu Denies CBN Governorship Rumors

Chairman of UBA Group and Heirs Holdings, Tony Elumelu, has unequivocally denied recent reports suggesting that President Bola Tinubu is considering him for the position of Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).

This refutation comes in response to a claim made by Imran Muhammad, a supporter of former President Muhammadu Buhari, on the microblogging platform, X (formerly known as Twitter), where he stated that “President Tinubu is also considering Tony O.

Elumelu as CBN governor.” Elumelu addressed this assertion on a Friday, dismissing it as false and responding with a simple “LOL. No, please. This is false news!”

Debunking Rumors After Aso Villa Meeting

Notably, this denial comes just days after Tony Elumelu visited President Tinubu at Aso Villa in Abuja, sparking speculations regarding the nature and purpose of their meeting.

However, Elumelu remained tight-lipped about the specifics of their discussion, emphasizing its private nature.

Despite the swirling rumors, he did express optimism and support for the government’s policy decisions, particularly highlighting President Tinubu’s bold initiatives.

Elumelu conveyed the hope that these policies would ultimately benefit the Nigerian people, with a specific focus on empowering women, creating employment opportunities for youths, and improving the overall well-being of the nation’s citizens.
