who executed the Article 98 Agreement on behalf of the GON)
I.A. Ayua indicated in a July 14 letter to Ambassador Jeter
that the GON has deemed the Article 98 agreement an
executive agreement. Thus, there will be no need to seek
National Assembly ratification.

exchange of Notes between the USG and the GON indicating

bring the Agreement into force. Embassy Abuja transmitted
