July 6, 2012, rolled by y like any other day. Unremembered; and unmourned! But in reality it is a date no adult Nigerian should forget quickly.

Because of the manner by which the oil subsidy probe came into being, the people of Nigeria should never allow the report and recommendations of Federal House of Representatives’ Committee on the issue to be forgotten in the midst of the cacophony over the manipulated Lawan-Otedola bribe scandal.
