From THE HILL: BP CEO Hayward relinquishes Gulf oil spill oversight role
If Hayward is no long the BP executive in charge of the Gulf oil spill, then why criticize him for taking time for some R&R? Haven't Hayward's critics on the Gulf coast ever heard of something called a Sabbath rest? Obviously Hayward's White House critics haven't heard of it.BP’s embattled CEO, Tony Hayward — who has come under tough criticism from lawmakers — will no longer oversee the company’s day-to-day response to the Gulf of Mexico oil spill, the oil company’s board chairman told British TV station Sky News on Friday.
BP Board Chairman Carl-Henric Svanberg told the network that Hayward is “handing over the operation” to Bob Dudley, the company’s managing director.
