First Lady Aisha Buhari has dissociated herself from a post claiming the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) had extended the validity period for old N,1000 and N500 notes by another 70 days.




The message, which was later tagged as fake news by the CBN, was sighted on the First Lady’s verified Instagram handle on Tuesday but was later pulled down.




“Due to the current and unpleasant situation happening in Nigeria, In line with Mr. President. After having a closed meeting with him on the 20th of February, 2023, the Central Bank Of Nigeria (CBN) has been directed to ONLY reissue and recirculate the old N200, N500 and N1000 banknotes and this is expected to circulate as legal tender for 70 days up to May 1, 2023. Members of the public should therefore continue to spend the old notes,” the release reads.







However, in another post on the same verified Instagram handle, Mrs. Buhari denied posting the release but alleged her account had been hacked.



He said the fake post was another attempt at smearing her image by the same persons responsible for deleting many of her social media posts in the past.



According to her, she immediately ordered the fake press release to be taken down from her handle when it was discovered. She tasked security and intelligence agencies to investigate and bring the culprits to justice.
