I currently have within my reach the sum of FIFTY TWO<br>
Dollars (US$52,000,000.00) cash which l intend to use<br>

Real Estate Development or import/export business<br>

country. This money came as a payback contract deal<br>
between my late <br>

multi-billion dollars Ajaokuta <br>
Steel Plant Project. <br>
The Russian Partners returned my husband's share of<br>
USD$52,000,000.00 <br>

husband's security <br>
company of which l am director right now, the new<br>

intensified their probe on my husband's financial and<br>
oil company. In <br>

withdraw the US$52,000,000.00 from the company's vault<br>
and deposited in <br>
another private security company vault within the<br>
I have since declared the Security Company bankrupt.<br>
No record ever <br>
existed concerning the money traceable by the<br>
government because there is <br>
no documentation showing that we received the money<br>
