Dear Sir/Madam, RE: SWIFT REMITTANCE.FINAL RELEASE OF ALL OLD OUTSTANDING CONTRACT PAYMENTS OF FOREIGN CONTRACTORS.
Sequel to the electoral promise of the Democratic Elected President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria Muhammadu
Buhari to release the old outstanding Contract Payments of foreign Contractors if elected as the President of the
Federal Republic of Nigeria. The Bill to that effect has been passed to the Senate and also the House of
Representatives for ratification. The Bill has been ratified by the two (2) Houses, that is, the Senate and House of
Representatives, respectively ; and the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) in conjunction with the Presidency have
approved the sum of US$500Million to clear the foreign contractorsâ debt. The CBN has been instructed to contact the
Contractor beneficiaries concerned for the approval and release of their payment.
Based on the above, your information was found from the Database of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) as one of the
foreign contractors that we owe. We have listed you as one of the Contractor Beneficiaries that will be forwarded to
the Presidency for approval; hence you should give us information on the contract you handled. The record in the
legal department shows that part of the money has been paid off, remaining a balance of US$12,500,000.00. You should substantiate the claim. Moreover, you should send us the under listed information:
(i) Your current Bank coordinates including the routing code and swift code. (ii) Your Contract sum/Contract
Number from the Ministry that Awarded the Contract. (iii) Your private Telephone/Fax numbers for our smooth communication.(iv) Your personal identification (International Passport or Driverâs License). (v) Your Contract Completion Certificate issued to you after commissioning the project. (vi) Contract site layout issued by the Director General of the Ministry that Awarded the Contract.
Sir/Madam, you should send the requested information/documents to reach our legal department as soon as you received
this letter from us. This payment is expected to be released to you within seven (7) banking days from date. The
contact of our correspondence bank in Europe will be given to you in our next communication.
Thanks for your usual understanding and cooperation. Yours faithfully, BARRISTER W.F.OKARANWOLU (SAN). LEGAL ADVISER ON FINANCIAL MATTERS-CBN, CENTRAL BANK OF NIGERIA (CBN) ABUJA FCT. TEL: Tel: +2348037703862 Email: email@example.com
