RE: YOUR CONTRACT PAYMENT OF $18.5 MILLION UNITED STATE DOLLARS BETWEEN 1990 - 2012.
I am Senator David Mark, (Senate President) the Chairman of SENATE COMMITTEE ON CONTRACTS CLAIM BETWEEN 1990 TO 2012. His Excellency, President Goodluck Jonathan ordered for immediate review and investigation on contracts awarded to both Local and Foreign contractors starting from 1990 to date, both executed and non-executed for immediate review and payment on any contract satisfactorily done and confirm to be legally awarded by this committee.
Upon this decision, the President inaugurated this Committee and I was appointed the chairman of Committee, hence all contract files were passed to me yesterday from all the dissolved task forces, Ministries, Corporations, Agencies and Parastetals of government on contract payment and from the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), since CBN lost its credibility during the Military regime. This Committee was mandated to pay off any contract certified okay after the review and reconciliation.
However, after the investigation on your contract file today which proved your claim to be illegal and unrealistic, I decided to send this confidential message. I have decided to contact you first by your email due to the urgency of this transaction, as I am aware that it will take at least two to three weeks for a normal post to reach you. So I decided it is best using the email. I crave your understanding of the fact that no contract was genuinely awarded to you by the Federal Government of Nigeria. That this fund you are claiming emanated through a deliberate over-invoicing of contract genuinely awarded to a German Firm by some members f the Contract Award Committee.
These workers contacted you to come and put up claims on this since as Civil Servants, law does not allow them to run any overseas accounts. For the fact that original contractor has been paid long ago, they used their positions to obtain all the required documents to back up this claims. I and my committee members are to cancel this payment after investigation but for a reason which I will let you know when I hear from you, I decided to seek your confidential co-operation. Nobody knows the outcome of this investigation as it on me as the chairman to put up a final report. I decided to keep it confidential to seek your opinion on this matter, " I HAVE INTEREST ON THIS FUND" and I the Chairman decided to write a favorable report on your behalf confirming your claims to be genuine.
With this satisfactory report, a Legal Clearance Certificate will be obtained on your behalf from the Federal Ministry of Justice to legally back up your claims as now required by the Civilian Government. Considering your financial input to this transaction, all present financial obligations to claim this fund will be taken up by both of us towards the successful
conclusion of this lingering transaction, but this depend on your acknowledgment of this letter and our agreement on the sharing of the fund and your guarantee on my share getting to me at this end. This piece of information which you have at hand now, is the true position of things and it is obvious to you. You may be getting one or two information from your
partners and other people the reasons that are holding this payment which is false. I am telling you for your own interest to stop further communications with these people concerning this payment because the truth is what you have at hand now and no other person knows. I am categorically telling you that without my instructions as the Chairman of this committee and also as the Senate President, this fund cannot get to you otherwise you end up spending more money without success.
Furthermore, I am assuring you that under the new dispensation for contract payment, I will make this dream a reality. This depends if you can stop further communication with any other person as well as keeping my communication with you secret and confidential because only you and I knows the outcome of this investigating Committee. For confidentiality
and security reasons, I expect to hear from you between now and the next 4 days from the date of receipt of this message in acknowledgment of this proposal, otherwise, I will believe you are not interested and I will go ahead to recommend the cancellation of the contract payment out rightly and reveal it to my committee members.
I await your response to enable me commence work in the processing of claim.
Senator David Mark [GCON]
& Chairman ofcon SENATE COMMITTEE ON CONTRACTS CLAIM BETWEEN 1990 TO 2012.
