Former Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF) Boss Mustapha, on Tuesday exonerated himself and former President, Muhammadu Buhari from the alleged fraudulent payment of six point two million dollars million to foreign election monitoring observers.
Mustapha made the clarifications on Tuesday while giving evidence in the trial of former CBN Governor, Godwin Emefiele, at the High Court of the Federal Capital Territory, saying that the letter credited to Buhari as the author did not emanate from the Presidency while another one purported to have emanated from and signed by him were forged documents.
He said that one Jubrin Abubakar, who allegedly collected the cash on February 8th, 2023, under the watch of Emefiele, was not a staff of the Office of the SGF and was not known to him.
Mustapha also faulted two letters alleged to have emanated from the Presidency under Buhari and the Office of the SGF, noting that the letters did not conform with the standard with which the Presidency and SGF writes letters.
It would be recalled that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) had alleged that Emefiele forged the letters to defraud the Federal Government.
