Dear Beneficiary This is to inform you that the Presidency has stepped into the payment of your contract/inheritance fund. The instruction to this Board to authorized your payment was given by the President himself Alahaji Musa Yar'Adua following intelligence report on contract payment he received which revealed that the lower offices and department including some departments of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) are engaging in the practice of payment delays through unnecessary use of bureaucratic office processes and imposition of unauthorized fees. This apart have been allegations that some officials of NNPC and CBN deliberately divert funds approved with the name of a Beneficiary to accounts that were not given by the known contractor after the due processing and approval of such payment. To avoid and curtail such, official misconduct and deliberate delay of foreign contractors payment under one flimsy reason or the other, the President of the Country therefore mandated this office to raise contractors payment and ensure that such payments are received by the contractor within a short period of five (5) days from the day of notice. Based on the information contained in your files and records submitted to us from NNPC, CBN, and FMF your name was in the list of Category “A” contractors whose payments have been verified and approved with the records indicating that your payment has long been over due. The directive from the President based on all these findings is that this office should make immediately and uninterrupted payment of your contract fund direct from the Federal Treasury. Other offices including CBN earlier handling your payment have been advised to hand over to this office to avoid duplication of efforts, though such offices hesitate to let you know of this new development. In respect of this, a meeting was held by this office with the representatives of concerned government bodies during which your file and other information of your payment were submitted. After going through your file a lot of official irregularities, impending stop orders and complexities surrounding the payment was discovered. This office and the concerned bodies unanimously decided and approved that your contract payment will be raised in Certified International Bank Draft. The draft will be raised either in your name or in the name of your Company as the beneficiary. As soon as the draft is raised and signed off by you, you will be required to present the draft at your bank for confirmation and crediting of fund into account. This will take 3-5 days of depositing of draft in your bank. However, any contractor who prefers fund remittance via Bank to Bank Transfer is advised to apply officially to this office without delay. Although this will take a little longer time. Once the application is approved payment advice will be issued to any of our affiliate banks for immediate remittance to your nominated account. You are therefore advised to liaison with this office on Tel: 234-805-7600747 Fax 234-1-4448185 Email:firstname.lastname@example.org immediately on receipt of this notice for further directives. I will be waiting for your prompt respond. Best Regard H.I Dankwambo Accountant General of the Federation Tel: 234-805-7600747 Fax 234-1-444-8185 Email:email@example.com
