P&ID $9bn Judgement Debt: P&ID Gas Contract Was Not Approved, Says Aondooakaa

Conceptualized by PDP, Planned by PDP, Designed by PDP, Implemented by PDP, Defaulted by PDP before they suddenly got thrown out, now they want to use the backdoor to collect the money.

By the time the truth of the matter comes out, we will all apologize to Invictus Obi for calling his scam the biggest scam in the world.

If you do a google search for P&ID, it will return a result that those in the Oil and Gas industry know it to be Piping and instrumentation diagram.
Now humor me and do a search your self on your PC for P&ID company, on my own PC, up to page 3 of the returned result, there is no such company listed, the closest to the company are all as a result of the court cases.
When I first heard EFCC was involved in reviewing the case, I was wondering what concerns EFCC with court case, now I now see that some people have really developed a lot of skillful ways never before seen anywhere in the world of defrauding their country.

Nigeria has to go back to the days of fire squad, many people have to be fired in a televised session for some others to have sense.

Michael Aondooakaa, former attorney general of the federation (AGF), says the gas contract awarded to Process and Industrial Developments Limited (P&ID) was not approved by the federal executive council.

Aondooakaa was Nigeria’s chief law officer in 2010, during the administration of Umar Musa Yar’adua, when the contract was signed.

A British court had given the company the fiat to seize Nigerian assets worth $9 billion.

In 2010, P&ID, an Irish engineering company, entered into a 20-year gas and supply processing agreement (GSPA) with the federal government to build a state-of-the-art gas processing facility in Calabar.

But the company said after spending several years preparing for the project, it collapsed because the Nigerian government did not build a pipeline or secure supply of gas as stipulated in the agreement.

It then sought judicial remedy in 2012, and in 2017, it was awarded $6.6 billion in damages – of which interest rose to $9 billion.

The process leading to the award of the contract has raised concerns with the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) declaring it would investigate those involved in it.

The names of Rilwanu Lukman, deceased ex-minister of petroleum and Aondooakaa have been mentioned as some of those involved in the contract.

In a report by the Nation, the former AGF said he was not aware of the deal.

“I can tell you that no such contract was brought for deliberation to the best of my knowledge “I did not see such contract and since the news broke I have been wondering how this was possible,” he said.

Abubakar Malami, attorney general of the federation, had said the deal was designed to fail because it was between P&ID and the ministry of petroleum resources which does not produce gas.

“The fact remains, you cannot sign an agreement for a product you do not have. It is against this background that there is need for a criminal investigation,’’ he said.

He also said all those behind it will be prosecuted.

The government said it would enter into negotiations with the company on the judgement.
