“It is a known fact that a contract of this magnitude could not have been approved except by the Federal Executive Council meeting of which Minister Tunji-Ojo is a member. Minister Tunji-Ojo, who knew he had an interest in the New Planet Project Limited, had deceived the Federal Executive Council into approving the contract for him without even informing the FEC that he is a shareholder in the said company. This is deceitful, mischievous and obtaining by false pretence”, the letter read in part.
