we have the mandate of the dept reconciliation panel,and the Senate
Committee on foreign contract review,to investigate issues affecting
the smooth transfer of all outstanding contract payment.
This was as a result of frequent reports reaching the Governor of this
Apex Bank on cases of fraudulent practices involving government
officials and some foreign collaborators to siphon huge sums of money
overseas to the detriment of our great nation.This has resulted to a
lot of negative reports on Central Bank,and thereby given Nigeria a
bad image before the international community.

Usman Bello came in company of a man named. Ovie.Benson,filed in an
application attached with the affidavit of "MEANS" for a change of
your bank details/Account nos,which is already programmed in the Telex
Department for Telegraphic Transfer of your payment.
