P&ID: FG Secures Variation Of UK Court Order On $200m Deposit by Ecstasy154(m): 10:39pm On Nov 29
By Ikechukwu Nnochiri – Abuja

The Federal Government, on Friday, said it has succeeded in securing variation of the United Kingdom court order that previously mandated it to make a cash payment of $200million as security, pending the determination of the appeal it lodged against Process and Industrial Developments (P&ID) Limited, P&ID.

The Attorney General of the Federation and Minister of Justice, Abubakar Malami made this known in a statement that was issued by his Special Assistant on Media and Public Relations, Dr. Umar Jibrilu Gwandu.

He disclosed that the variation request which the UK court granted on Thursday, followed an appeal FG filed against the payment of $200m security component which was a condition for stay of execution of the judgment in favour of P&ID.

According to the statement, the Court granted FG’s request for variation of terms of the order seeking to provide a bank guarantee in place of direct deposit.

“Our application for variation of the order was allowed and we are as a result not making cash deposit but posting a bank guarantee,” the AGF stated.

He said: “We remain in control of our funds by the act of acceptance of the guarantee.

“The Government is not paying the $ 200m cash but positing a bank guarantee by the variation of the order.

“The advantage of the variation in the judgment from direct deposition of cash to posting of bank guarantee is that the money and its control resides in the Federal Government unlike when otherwise.

“The success recorded so far in relation to the $200m security deposit is that the amount of money remain in our custody, and we are simply providing a document.

“It is only when our case did not succeed, which we never anticipate, then the court can order the withdrawal the amount as stated in bank guarantee”.

Malami said FG’s requested for change in the method of paying the security deposit because it believed that the entire

contract would be quashed on the basis of fraud.

He reiterated Nigerian government’s commitment to vigorously pursue the case with a view to setting aside the $9.6billion judgement liability against the country, as well as quashing the entire controversial gas supply contract P&ID is laying claim to.

Bank guarantee is almost the same as cash nah. The point is the $200M is still up for grabs only if the judgment goes in our favour. No biggie here abeg

Exactly all the comments above yours don't seem to understand this.

Also the attorney general saying this as if it's some sort of victory is being very ignorant and shows that Nigeria has no real chance of winning this case

Nice move by FG.

Let them hold the document while the physical cash remains in Nigeria. At least the $200 million will be working within the country pending the determination of the case.

A bird at hand at hand is worth 100 in the bush.
Let them hold paper while we hold the money.

Since Buhari refused to pay P&ID, Atiku has packed his bag and returned to Nigeria. Nigger is out of job.

Atiku better go and sign up and be riding Opay.

Nigeria will lose if truly the govt violated a signed valid contract, uk courts are not like Nigerian courts where the govt has overwhelming influence, but if on the other hand the grounds for violating the contract are legitimate, then Nigeria has a chance.

P&ID took this same case to the US and lost woefully before they ran to the UK. Since Nigeria had their time, they have not made a single progress in the UK courts.

Mind you, the laws of the UK expressly state that they can't enforce arbitral proceedings or judgements against foreign states without consent of the State.

Did Nigeria give consent?

Bank guarantee is not the same as cash oh. It is just an additional comfort


Trying activating a bank guarantee for a failed transaction and you will be amazed at the long unwinding court process involved.

The govt says the contract is a fraud because there is no record of its deliberation at any FEC meeting and no mention of it in any budget that time. Besides the promoters have been convicted for fraud in the past.

I wonder how this people sleep at night with their heart full of hate.

This is a welcome development. I strong believe the Appeal will go on our favour as the contract was full of fraud.

God bless Buhari for upholding the Rule of Law
