TalkGlitz had reported that the first lady on Tuesday shared a fake circular from the apex bank ordering the recirculation of the old Naira notes until May 10.

The post shared by the president’s wife gathered thousands of reactions.

However, the CBN’s Director of Corporate Communications, Osita Nwanisobi, via social media page denied the apex bank issued a directive.

He further urged the public to disregard the circular on social media, as it is fake news.

However, on her Facebook page, the first lady said she has deleted the post stating that a hacker is responsible for the fake news.

She noted that this was not the first time an unauthorized person is having access to her page as well as deleting several social media posts.

Aisha Buhari wrote, “DISCLAIMER! DISCLAIMER!!

“It has come to my attention that certain fake news was posted on my social media handle, Instagram which also directly connects to my Facebook page, earlier this morning. I have since directed that it should be deleted.

“This is without a doubt the criminal actions of the person(s) who were responsible for deleting quite a number of my posts from 2018 to late last year when I posted a video and picture of my hands with the Henna design of ABAT insignia on the day I launched the APC Women Presidential Campaign Committee for Bola Ahmed Tinubu in Ilorin, Kwara State, my post on the event for the Traditional and Complementary Alternative Medicine (TCAM) conference and 17 other posts.

“This person is a hacker, criminally minded with the intention to continue attacking my reputation through my social media platforms.

“But I am assuring you that this is the first and last I am disclaiming fake news on my handle. It is the responsibility of the security agencies to find out who am I sharing my social media handles with, despite being verified accounts, and take all necessary actions.
