My name is Hajia Turai Yar'Adua, the first wife of the late president Federal Republic of Nigeria Umaru Yar'Adua.
I want to use this opportunity to make a business with you, my influence increased because of my husband's bouts of illness. He was in an out of hospital even before he was rushed to Saudi Arabia last November before he died. He has not been seen in public since.
I was among the staunchest opponents of handing executive powers to Vice President Goodluck Jonathan now the president when my husband Yar'Adua was hospitalized, leaving government decision making in limbo.I control over access to Yar'Adua, who has not even seen the vice-president since his return then, puts me in a powerful position as one of the only people to know the true state of his health and what his chances of recovery are.
Furthermore, then I was afraid that my husband will not make it due to the illness. I made use of the veto power to save some funds into foreign accounts as my husband did not have that opportunity.
Please bear it in mind that the opposition party being the vice president now the president cabinet keep watch on me in which i will not in any way have access to communicate freely with you. I decided to contact you so that you will help me to save the sum of 25million United States dollars that was already deposited in a bank and you will get 40% of the fund thereafter.
If you are eager to help, kindly forward your full name, residential address, age occupation and mobile telephone number to me so that I will give you more directives.you more directives.kindly reply through my email: email@example.com

Wife of the president
