> I, on behalf of my other colleagues from different

> We as holders of official positions in various 
> parastatals, were mandated by this new civilian 
> government to scrutinize all payments made to certain 
> foreign contractors by the past Military Government 
> and we discovered that some of the contracts they 
> executed were grossly over-invoiced, either by

> sum of $65,560,000.00 (Sixty-Five Million, Five 
> Hundred and Sixty Thousand United States Dollars Only)
> was lying in a suspense account, although the foreign 
> contractors were fully paid their entitlements after

> over-invoiced amount be transferred (for our own use) 
> into a bank account provided by a foreign partner, as 
> the code of conduct of the Federal Civil Service does 
> not allow us to operate foreign accounts. 
> However, we have succeeded in transferring some of 
> these money, precisely US$20,000,000.00 (Twenty 
> Million United States Dollars Only) into a foreign 
> account in GENEVA (SWITZERLAND). But 
> unfortunately, the provider of the account has severed
> all forms of contacts with us as he has refused to 
> adhere to our earlier mutual agreement insisting that 
> the total amount be paid into his nominated bank 
> account before disbursement will take effect. If for 
> US$20M (Twenty Million United States Dollars Only) we 
> are not compensated, how can one guarantee full 
> compensation on remittance of the balance of 
> US$45.560M (Forty-Five Million, Five Hundred and Sixty
> Thousand United States Dollars Only). 
> We are therefore seeking your assistance based on the 
> balance amount of US$45.560M, which can be speedily
