ATTENTION: HONOURABLE BENEFICIARY. RE: OVERDUE CONTRACT/INHERITANCE PAYMENT This is to notify the numerous foreign contractors/Inheritance beneficiary owed by the banks and Federal Government of Nigeria from various parastatals that going by the Geneva Pact signed by Government of Nigeria and the World Bank as it relates to long overdue payment of foreign contractors/Inheritance Beneficiary on behalf of the Federal Government of Nigeria. Apparently, investigations carried out by the World Bank Auditors has confirmed that most beneficiaries are being asked to pay certain irrelevant charges by the Apex Bank and other Government financial institutions, therefore making it very difficult for Contractor/Inheritance Beneficiary to meet such obligations which is contrary to Section “37” Subsection “C” of the Article XII of Banks and other financial decree of 1995 as amended in 1998. In view of this, the Governing Board of the World Bank has directed the World Bank Auditors to shift base to Nigeria to scrutinize and oversee an immediate release of such payments that has met the requirements for effectiveness without any further delay. Any beneficiary certified “OK” will receive his / her fund within five (5) working days from the date of the final authentication of his / her contractual date. It is also interesting to inform beneficiaries that in order to carry out deductions on their bills as regards Cost of Transfers (COT), Security Deposit (SD) and other taxable charges, beneficiaries will be requested to obtain the Debit form M104 from this authority so as to empower this board to carry out such deduction from the total contract sum before final remittance. Furthermore, certification and unconditional payment release orders has been invested on this board and it involves payment from our statutory foreign reserves of international capital markets (ICM) loan from (IMF) and the World Bank respectively. It is of vital international financial interest that all payments under this dispensation have been bestowed on the World Bank Auditors for immediate settlements. On behalf of the Nigerian/Ghana government, this body regret any inconveniences this delay might have caused your goodself. You are hereby finally advised to stop all further communications with any agents, group of people or any government bodies in respect of your payment. Please contact us for detailed information. Expecting your prompt response. Yours faithfully, Rev Adams Peters General Auditor (WB)
