    All of those are true and he is truly, a business legend. However, some of his requests to the government recently raised some eyebrows. he wanted the government to abandon the local gas pricing scheme and move towards the international pricing scheme so that the price would rise to almost three times the barrel price the government is paying now. With price regulatory powers already vested within the companies, I think he is asking for a big bargain and putting the government in a 'no option' state. its true that he is a businessman, but sometimes, his plans get wicked.
