P&ID’s $9.6bn Judgement Aftermath -Nigeria To Lose $2.3bn In France

As Nigerians speak ill of the controversial $9.6bn judgement in favour of the Process and Industrial Developments, P&ID, the country is at the verge of losing another $2.3bn in France over unresolved legal and funding crisis involving the Nigerian government and a local content partner, Sunrise Power and Transmission Company Limited (SPTCL).

A statement obtained by TheCable, revealed that the country could possibly lose $2.3 billion fine in arbitration in France as a result of controversies surrounding the Mambilla power project in Taraba state.

The company through its chief executive officer Leno Adesanya, said the SPTCL was sidelined in the project by the ministry of power in a series of petitions to President Muhammadu Buhari, Vice-President Yemi Osibanjo, Malami, Babatunde Fashola, former minister of power. The company averred that the federal government awarded SPTCL the contract to build, operate and transfer (BOT) in 2003.

It accused the federal government of signing another contract in 2017 with three Chinese companies, Sinohhydro Corporation of China, China Ghezouba Group Corporation of China and China Geo-Engineering Group Corporation, to form a joint venture for the execution of the project.

The sudden breach of contract according the company was done by ‘vested interests’ in government. The company also accused Abba Kyari, chief of staff to the president, of taking the unilateral decision to remove the company from the contract. The company also accused Fashola of reneging on his promise to support the project. 

As a result, SPTCL dragged the federal government and its Chinese partners before the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) in Paris, France, over an alleged breach of contract.

 In view of that SPTCL is making the following claims for being excluded from the final contract: 

Wasted expenditures: $100 million+ 

Loss of profit as content partner: $565 million 

Loss of the commission due by SINOHYDRO to SUNRISE: $855 million

 Loss of profit that would have been made through the resettlement contract: $525 million 

Loss of reputation: $25 million+

  1. What is the meaning of all these blunders by our ministers? What will be left in the coffers by the time all these fines are imposed? Abba kayri and Fashola has a case to answer oh and that "vested interest" accusation must be explained.

  2. Our leaders are simply incompetent.
    Tired of reading stuffs like this that are deeply depressing.

    Most of the problems our nation is facing today are avoidable with the right people at the helm of affairs.Not with our present arrangement where presidency is being run by proxy!
