He's how old?![edit]

"Ibori was the governor of Delta State from 199 until 2007" Need I say more? I'm a bit shifty about letting a currency comparison through without contest because we don't want to see too Anglo-American. Just link the first "US$" and "£" and I'll let it through. --James Pain (talk) 19:32, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Oh, also link the place names / countries to their wikinews pages, not the wikipedia pages. Quoting the style guide "Make links for regions and countries to the Wikinews region or country, not to the Wikipedia articles for same. Wikinews readers' primary interest is in further news, and should be directed to other news articles rather than non-news technical information unless it is particularly relevant to the news story." --James Pain (talk) 19:35, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
Thanks for the help. I fixed the year date to 1999 not 199. I have also linked a Wikinews link on all i can (Nigeria, Dubai and the United Kingdom). Does this meet the satasfactory criteia. Chandlerjoeyross (talk) 19:47, 13 May 2010 (UTC)

Copyedit suggestion[edit]

I've given this article a quick copyedit, but I feel it could do with a little improvement- I don't like the sentences about his assets, it seems to have a bit of an accusatory tone. You could also do with copyediting out a few of the "Ibori"s. Great work though. HJ Mitchell | Penny for your thoughts? 21:08, 13 May 2010 (UTC)
