In the case of the Ministry of Mineral Resources about the forceful donations by the companies working in mining to support the inauguration of Darfur governor, the Ministry should also come out with a statement to give the appropriate information about the incident and if the step was in accordance to the scope of its financial policies and procedures.

It is wise to recognize that the creation of the totalitarian state in which the democratic standards do not exist is a gradual process that starts from neglecting the law till it becomes the general conduct.

The dictator is not born as a dictator, but his people and nation make him.
