Buhari’s Signature Was Forged To Withdraw $6.2b From CBN – Ex-SGF Mustapha Tells Court

Boss Mustapha, a former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), said those who withdrew $6,230,000 from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) on February 8, 2023, falsified the signature of former President Muhammadu Buhari.

Mustapha claimed that his signature was also forged and that he was ignorant of the funds that was allegedly withdrawn to pay for foreign election observers during his testimony on Tuesday, February 13, in the trial of Godwin Emefiele, the former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria.
