- Andrew Lai Usman,National Assembly Complex3Arms SquareGarki-Abuja. Sir, This will come to you with a degree of surprise and scepticism since we have not actually met before. But permit me to introduce myself.

Contract Over-Invoicing, funds diversions, fraudulent and fictitious payments during the period under review in the power sector.Please, view the following links. 1) The Proposal.

This was a personal and private discovery made by myself among others. While other over-invoiced sums were disclosed or revealed to the committee for investigation, this particular discovery has not been exposed. It is clearly and carefully concealed and has been smuggled successfully and included to the list of those payments that have received the approval of both the Ministry of Finance and the National House of Assembly on the recommendation of the Power Sector probe committee. The Original contract has been completed, commissioned and contractor paid living behind this over-invoiced sum. I need your indulgence to have this money paid to you. You will be successfully presented as the owner of the $22m and will subsequently be paid. I will use my influence, good political relationship with all to ensure that the payment is approved in your name. 40% of the $22m which represents $8.8m will be yours.10% will be used to grease the elbows of those that will fast track the payment in the Bank and the Government Ministries. while the rest shall be mine.
