RE: PAYMENT OF OUTSTANDING CONTRACT/BENEFICIARY FUND VIA BANK TO BANK WIRE
This is to inform you that the Presidency has stepped into the payment of your
Contract/Beneficiary fund. The instruction to this Board to release your payment
was given by the President of Nigeria Umar Yar'Adua following intelligence
report on foreign payment he received which revealed that some lower offices and
Banks, are engaging in the practice of payment delays through unnecessary use of
bureaucratic office process.This apart has been allegations that some officials
of the lower offices and Banks have deliberately diverted funds approved with
the name of a beneficiary to accounts that were not given by the known
Beneficiary after the due processing and approval of such payment.
To avoid and curtail such, official misconduct and deliberate delay of foreign
payment under one flimsy reason or the other, the President of the country
therefore mandated this office to raise beneficiary payment and ensure that such
payments are received by the beneficiary within a short period of five (7) days
from the day of notice. Based on the information contained in your files and
records submitted to us from the lower offices and banks your name was in the
list of Category “A” Contract/Beneficiary claim whose payment have been
verified and approved with the records indicating that your payment has long
been over due.
The directive from the President based on all these findings is that this
office should make immediately and uninterrupted payments of your inheritance
fund direct from the Federal Treasury. Other offices including any of the banks
in Nigeria earlier handling your payment have been advised to hand over to this
office to avoid duplication of efforts, though such offices hesitate to let you
know of this new development.
In respect of this, this office held a meeting with the representatives of
concerned government bodies during which your payment file and other information
of your payment were submitted. After going through your file a lot of official
regularities, impending stop orders and complexities surrounding the payment
were discovered. This office and the concerned bodies unanimously decided and
approved that your payment will be released to you through Bank to Bank wire
transfer. The payment will be done either in your name or in the name of your
Company as the beneficiary. You are therefore advised to liaise immediately on
receipt of this notice for further directives
