Mustapha said his signature was also forged, adding that he knew nothing about the money reported to have been withdrawn for the payment of foreign election observers.

 
Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha has confirmed that ex-President Muhammadu Buhari's signature was forged to withdraw $6,230,000 from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) on February 8, 2023.
 
Mustapha, who was testifying on Tuesday, February 13, in the trial of former governor of the CBN, Godwin Emefiele, said his signature was also forged, adding that he knew nothing about the money reported to have been withdrawn for the payment of foreign election observers.
 
The ex-SGF said it was not the business of the federal government or the office of the SGF to request funds from the CBN for the payment of foreign election observers, saying it was solely the responsibility of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to deal with issues relating to election observers.
 
An official of the CBN, Michael Onyeka Ogbu had told a High Court of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) in Maitama on Monday that the amount was given out in cash to an official from the office of the SGF, named Jibril Abubakar following approvals by President Buhari and CBN governor, Godwin Emefiele following a request by the SGF.
 
Emefiele is accused by the prosecution of being behind the withdrawal.
