Former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria, Kingsley Moghalu, who served from 2009 to 2014 under President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, along with his wife Maryanne, recently encountered a situation of being stuck in an elevator for more than 30 minutes due to technical difficulties.
Maryanne, the spouse of the Nigerian political economist, took to the microblogging platform X (previously known as Twitter) to share their ordeal. She posted videos depicting the incident, explaining that the elevator unexpectedly halted between floors.
Sharing her perspective on the situation, Maryanne’s post read, “During this morning, @MoghaluKingsley and I found ourselves trapped in an elevator for a duration exceeding 30 minutes! The elevator came to a halt in the midst of floors. I express gratitude for the favorable outcome.
This underscores the importance of commencing the day with a prayerful heart. Referencing Psalms 91, one can never foresee what lies around the corner. Praises be to God!”
Moghalu, the founder of Sogato Strategies LLC, a worldwide investment advisory firm, holds the position of President at the Institute for Governance and Economic Transformation (IGET), a think tank focusing on public policy. In addition, he holds the role of Non-Resident Senior Fellow at the Council on Emerging Market Enterprises at Tufts University’s Fletcher School and serves as the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) Special Envoy on Post-Covid Development Finance for Africa.
