Mr. Sanusi Lamido Sanusi bears the burden of our generation; with his several awards, a renewed hope for our fatherland. He is one of a very few articulate leaders of our country from whom much is expected. Let it be known to him that when in a hole, it is unwise to continue digging...

Several meanings are enumerated as reasons for the offer of an appointment to Mr. Nuhu Ribadu, a retired police officer and past Chairman of the Nigerian Economic Financial Crimes Commission to chair of a newly created Petroleum Task Force...
