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 

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 immediately on receipt of this notice for further directives.

I will be waiting for your prompt respond.

Best Regard
