This is a petition for an order recognizing and confirming a foreign arbitral award against the Federal Republic of Nigeria and for entry of judgment on the award. The case is straightforward. The government of Nigeria and an engineering firm, PICCOL Nigeria Ltd. ("PICCOL"), entered into a contract for the construction of gully erosion control structures. In the contract, they agreed to arbitrate disputes. A dispute arose due to Nigeria's months-long delays in payments due under the contract. PICCOL and its principal, Peter A. Chiejina, demanded arbitration. The parties proceeded to arbitrate the dispute at the Regional Centre for International Commercial Arbitration, Lagos, as their contract required. The arbitrator awarded damages to PICCOL and Mr. Chiejina ("the Petitioners"). Nigeria has failed to pay. Under the New York Convention and Chapter 2 of the Federal Arbitration Act, the Petitioners are entitled to confirmation of the award and to judgment.
