I Forgot To Inform Buhari I’m Running For President – Moghalu
The former Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) Deputy Governor said he forgot to inform President Muhammadu Buhari of his intention to run.
The post was ostensibly a reaction to State House visits by All Progressives Congress (APC) leader, Bola Tinubu, and Ebonyi Governor, Dave Umahi.
The duo, at separate meetings on Monday and Tuesday, told Buhari that they would seek the party’s ticket.
I forgot to inform President @Mbuhari that I am running for President. But I informed Nigerians, of whom he is one, so no wahala.

The tweet didn’t sit well with some respondents who posted photos of him sharing biscuits to kids, while others joked about it or gave him advice.
Moghalu joined the ADC in October 2021 and National Chairman, Ralph Nwosu said Nigeria needs “servants and dedicated leaders” like him.
He is a lawyer and political economist. He was the Young Progressives Party (YPP) presidential candidate in 2019.
Moghalu served as Special Envoy of the United Nations on Post-COVID Development Finance for Africa.
