Dear Sir, I was instructed by the president to find out before the end of this month, WHY your contract fund have been not been credited to your account after instruction has been passed to all various quarters that all overdue contract payment should be released as a lot of petitions by contractors has been received by the president. On proper verifications from your contract payment this office will shortlist/program your payment as prove of execution is established on your contract file. These office sympathies with you for falling victim of circumstance during the military ruler ship as all your dealingswas through the back door to get your contract sum released. Also all deductible charges/costs would be deducted before final credited. The new civilian administration has taken full steps to checkmate those fraudulent practices that have given us bad name in the past/now. Henceforth, you are advised on your own interest in order to achieve and establish a good working relationship with this office, stop every communication or entertain any call from any government office/s till you receive your fund into your account before the shortlistment of your fund, you are advised to RECONFIRM YOUR BANK /CONTRACT DETAILS AND CONTRACT AMOUNT to avoid any wrong transfer through our corresponding bank that would make final crediting to your nominated account.
