And I went to the bank to confirm if the draft has expired or getting nearer to expiring date, and Mr.William Patrick, the Director,Bank of west Africa, he told me that before the draft will get to you, that it will expire. So I told him to cash the $2.8 Million U.S DOLLARS to cash payment to avoid losing this funds under expiration as I will be out of the country for a 3 Months Course and I will not come back till ending of march 2010. However, all the necessary arrangement for delivering the $2.8 Million U.S DOLLARS in cash was made with FEDEX COURIER SERVICE COMPANY here in Cotonou Benin Republic, Mr.William Patrick, the Director of Bank of west Africa Cotonou has package the sum of $2.8 Million USD in cash for you. Then he also help me to Register the Consignment with FEDEX COURIER SERVICE COMPANY. Infact I'm very happy that every arrengment I made was successful.
