                 JOINT VENTURE

I am DR RICHARD AKU. Chairman of Contract Award and
Verification Panel setup by the Nigerian National Petroleum
Corporation (NNPC).Our mandate
includes ventilation,award of contracts for projects and
certification of jobs completed for payment to qualified
contractors.



During our contract verification exercise, we found outthat
(ContractNo:NNPC/PED/1473/96), a turn around maintainance
in one of the petroleum refinaries awarded in July,1996 and
completed in August, 1998 was over-invoiced to the tune of
twenty five million,six hundred thousand united states
dollars(usd 25.6million).The contractor that did this
contract has been paid of in good faith and account closed
after rendering to the federal goverment.This over invoiced
sum is floating on NNPC acount with Central Bank of
Nigeria.Iwant to transfer this money into your account for
onward disbursement and this is exactly why I am contacting
you.It could be personal,company or an offshore account
which you have control over.We civil servants here are
poorly paid.The politicians take every thing and we civil
servants are not entitiled to have foreign account by civil
service law.

To make things easy and legal, the fund is reflecting in
our records as payable to a foreigner who did aconsultancy
service job for the ministry during the turn around
maintenance of the petroleum refinery.All necessary and
relevant documents will be procured for the release and
transfer of the fund into your nominated account. An
application for foreign exchange allocation will be made on
your behalf from my office to the federal ministry of
finance (FMF) and the Central Bank of Nigeria(CBN) for the
subsequent release and transfer of the fund into your
nominated account.

As the incumbent chairman of this newly constituted panel,I
have discussed with the C.B.N officials involved in this
transaction and We have agreed to give you 15% of this fund
for your assistance while 5% would be used to defray any
expensis incurred during the course of this transaction.The
remaining sum would be banked for us for investment in your
country.

this transaction,as we are capable of handling any situation
