Hi and welcome to Scamwarners.
100% scam of course. Advance fees will be needed before you can receive the imaginary contract payment.
Don't contact him again though from your real life email address. If you want to bait him, open a baiting email account with Gmail and join www.419eater.com first.
www.cbnnigerian.com was registered on 14th July 2009 for one year just for the email address. No attempt has been made to create a website.

(As I haven't yet tried to get a fake site closed, can I have this one please?)
