The Nigerian Government has insisted that the Process and Industrial Development Limited (P&ID) contract is fraudulent, following the recent development in the case.
The Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, stated this at a press conference on Wednesday in Abuja, the nation’s capital.
Briefing journalists on the outcome of the visit by the government delegation, Mohammed noted that they recorded a huge success.
According to him, the government won a leave of the commercial court to appeal the judgment which P&ID had vehemently resisted.
Mr Mohammed said the court granted the government “unconditional permission” to appeal against its own decision.
He also disclosed that the court rejected P&ID’s arguments that there was no basis for any appeal, as the judge admitted that the case was of major importance to the Nigerian government and its people.
The minister insisted that P&ID was a company without a physical address and no known investment anywhere in the world.
The company’s intention, according to the minister, was set out to dupe Nigeria from day one with the help of those he described as unpatriotic, corrupt and greedy Nigerians
