Office Of The President,
Aso-Rock Presidential Villa,
I am Dr Abraham Nwankwo, Director General of the Debt Management
Office (DMO) and Special Adviser to the President of the Federal
Republic of Nigeria on Foreign debt.
The Attention of the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria has
been drawn to complaints and petitions from numerous foreign payment
beneficiaries and contractors about the non-payment of their foreign
payments (Inheritance payment, Contract payment and Lottery payment).
The President is embarrassed by this disclosure and is very sorry for
the inconveniences you might have experienced with the non-payment of
your foreign payment.
I have been instructed by the President to release the sum of US$7.5
Million (Seven Million, Five Hundred Thousand United States Dollars) to
you. The Federal Government of Nigeria has entered a debt buyback
agreement with the Central Bank and the Local banks to enable you get
your payment without delay. Your US$7.5 Million will be released to you
directly from the Excess Crude Account of the Federal Government of
Nigeria while the bank withholding your foreign payment will refund the
I therefore urge you that you contact me immediately for the immediate release of your payment to you.
Contact me with your:
1. Full names
3. Telephone and fax numbers.
It has also come to our notice that fees, rates and charges for
services rendered by the Central Bank of Nigeria and local banks for
the release of your payments are duplicitously inflated by desk and
scheduled officer to facilitate the release of your foreign payment.
Even after the payment of these bogus and ridiculous fees, your foreign
payment is not released to you.
A judicial/administrative panel of enquiry has been setup to
investigate all these allegations. Members of this panel are The
National Security Adviser, the Attorney General of the Federation, The
state Security Services (SSS), the Inspector General of the Police, the
Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria and the Federal Minister of
Finance. The panel has been mandated to get to the bottom of these
allegations. Any local bank or official found wanting, culpable or
liable will be dealt with according to the law.
This government is hinged on the rule of law and due process. No
responsible government will fold its arms while the reputation and
image of the country is tarnished by unscrupulous element.
