Emefiele Reveals How UK Court Orders Release of $200m Deposit to Nigeria.
Governor of Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Godwin Emefiele, Tuesday revealed how a commercial court in London ordered the release of $200 million users as a deposit in the case against Process & Industrial Development (P&ID) to the Federal Government of Nigeria.
Emefiele disclosed that the United Kingdom court also rejected P&ID’s application to increase the guarantee, which was clearly intended to be a diversionary tactic and entirely misconceived.
According to him, “Due to the substantial evidence of prima facie fraud established before the court, we are pleased that the judge has agreed to release the guarantee.
“We are also pleased that the court has rejected P&ID’s application to increase the guarantee, which was clearly intended to be a diversionary tactic and entirely misconceived.
“This release which is accretion into the reserves will further enhance the nation’s management of the exchange rate of its domestic currency, the naira. This is a further and significant victory for Nigeria in our ongoing fight to overturn the $10 billion award procured through fraud and corruption by P&ID and former government officials.
“P&ID and its backers, Lismore Capital and VR Advisory, are increasingly seeing their case slip between their fingers. They continue to resort to employing delay tactics, disseminating misleading claims, and taking every step to obstruct our investigations across multiple jurisdictions.
“The FRN (Federal Republic of Nigeria) will not rest until we secure justice for the people of Nigeria – no matter how long it takes. Investigations are ongoing, and we are confident that more of the truth will be revealed over the coming months.”
