“Strict adherence to the provisions of the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria; obedience to judgements and orders of the court as well as respect to the rule of law; non-interference with other arms of government especially the judiciary.

Reports said the hearing was also held to determine whether P&ID would be granted permission to appeal the decision, however, the court denied P&ID’s request to remand the case to arbitration.

It contended that the company’s conduct during the process was heinous, thus the judgment.

Nigeria had sued P&ID for at least £20 million in damages and legal fees but obtained significant relief in October when the UK court released it from entanglement in the $11 billion judgment debt previously issued in favour of P&ID Limited.

In the lawsuit between the Federal Government of Nigeria and P&ID, Justice Robin Knowles of the Commercial Courts of England and Wales affirmed Nigeria’s claim that the gas processing contract was obtained by fraud.

In the judgment delivered after five years of legal battle, Judge Knowles said: “In the circumstances and the reasons I have sought to describe and explain, Nigeria succeeds on its challenge under section 68. I have not accepted all of Nigeria’s allegations. But the awards were obtained by fraud and the way they were procured was contrary to public policy.”

Recall that P&ID was contracted by Nigeria in 2010 to build a gas processing plant in Calabar, Cross River State, in the country’s south but the deal fell through because the Nigerian government did not keep its half of the bargain.

“He can tell you more stories; he’s been with me on borrowed motorbikes in the valleys and on the mountains.

He follows me so hard; some occultic powers said if you can’t get the church, get the man,” but they testified that he was far above the sky, where they can’t locate him.

Do you have value for God’s presence? Then engage with passion; don’t be a social member of this church, or won’t pay you.”
