MANILA, March 6 — Former President Ferdinand E. Marcos received most of an $80 million payment 10 years ago for awarding a lucrative contract to build the first nuclear power plant in the Philippines, according to Filipino lawyers, bankers and Government officials.
The payment, by the Westinghouse Electric Company, went to a close associate of Mr. Marcos and the bulk of it was later turned over to the former president, the sources said. The power plant has not yet been completed.
