I am Mr.Adams Akin personal assistant to senator Idris Abubakar. Senator Idris Abubakar is chairman of the national assembly of Nigeria. This committee awarded contract to foreign consortium firms to build a Hydro Electric Dam in Nigeria at the sum of USD3.5billion.

The senator with his team(committee) Would collect the sum of USD28million (Twenty Eight million dollars)only on guise as partner firm that would supply some construction and electrical equipments to the consortium of contractors for which the named associate company should be enlisted among the contractors.

The Idris Abubakar committee serving as senators in the present Nigerian government, trusted and mandated me to receive and manage this fund (USD28million) for them through a neutral and unfamiliar body outside Nigeria since all aspects of the contract is completely foreign oriented.

Please treat this information with utmost confidentiality.I look forward to your urgent reply.
