    I hope and pray he is able to restitute the tons of money he stole from the Government as petroleum minister. None of these Ministers of Petroleum hands are clean. I hope Deziani is seeing this Death also awaits you as you spend our money recklessly flying in jets alround the world and as your son hold party inside the private jets paid for by Nigeria. Another corrupt politician bites the dust. OBJ your turn is next as you were petroleum minister for 8 years during your time.

    Rewanu Lukman was a distinguished administrator and a fine gentleman. He was a grandmaster of oil politics at OPEC. It is on record that he remained the third longest serving Secrtary General of OPEC after the current secretary General Abdallah Salem al- Badri of Libya and Dr. Subroto of Indonesia in that order serving five years from Jan 1995 to Dec 2000. He indeed served Nigeria meritoriously. Oil was Lukman and Lukman was oil. Could this have accounted for why he chose to die in Vienna, home to the headquarters of OPEC? May his soul rest in perfect peace!

    @Akhigbe I guess you made mistake in your comment.May be you were trying to say that he was a disgusting administrator.

    @Paul,@JD,
    The two of you are very childish in your comments. You have not said specifically what you have against this dead man than he Is a northerner and you want me to join your mass choir of stupidity. I read meaningful contributors in this forum not empty headed people like you who insult others just because you don’t like them. If you didn’t pick on me directly here, I wouldnt have posted this response because I don’t attach importance to you. You are insulting a man who flew the country’s flag for five year on an international forum like OPEC and you want to be taken seriously. What is the contribution of your parents who did not train you to respect others to this country? Idiots!
