ABUJA —INDICATIONS emerged, yesterday, that former Attorney General and Minister of Justice and current Special Duties Minister, Michael Aondoakaa, has apologized to Information and Communications Minister, Prof. Dora Akunyili over a statement he allegedly made that “Akunyili …. go confront herself with what happened in NAFDAC.” Following the alleged statement, the Information minister had issued Aondoakaa a seven-day ultimatum to clarify the statement or be dragged to court.

However, Aondoakaa, who was redeployed from Justice ministry, Wednesday, was quoted, in a letter dated 9 February, 2010, as refering to Akunyili as ‘My Dear Sister’, and noting that he was only praising the performance of the Information minister during her time at the National Agency for Food, Drugs Administration and Control, NAFDAC, where she served as Director General.

Aondoakaa said in the letter: “While much of quoted words can be rightly ascribed to me, the import of the last sentence to the effect that ‘let her go confront herself with what happened in NAFDAC’ was meant to be in the positive. The correct import of the above quoted words is that the Hon. Minister had already earned a reputation for herself while at NAFDAC and need not seek to do more by embarking on the present course of action to the detriment of a resolution already adopted unanimously by members of the FEC.”

The former Attorney General had also allegedly described Prof. Akunyili as “a self-seeking office holder who wants to make herself a cheap heroin.” He had said: “Well, first, she did not understand the constitution and she is not following events in the country. I think she was just trying to make herself a cheap heroin out of that. If you see what the Senate said, the Senate made an appeal. She does not need the FEC to make an appeal; she can also make her appeal.

When embarassment like this starts befalling a great man, its more honourable to take a respectful bow. If this once agf have a family, they should call him to order, by asking talk him to throw in the towel or he is going to bring more disgrace not only to himself but his family(thats if he has one) and his profession. Or he prefers the kind disgrace his past immediate boss surfering before taking his leave? He is a disgrace to manhood postrate publicly before a woman. He should get rid of that thing between his legs or should wait for forceful castration by real men with honour.

Several times without number I told whoever care to listen who our former AGF is, so I will never surprise when he now bow before a Woman of Substance to apologies on his utterances which he had know facts about. How I love he will go ahead and spill the beans he is trying to do in order for him to continue respecting sycophants who had no vision rather siphoning people's monies for their selfish interest. If Acting President is not a peace lover he will send former justice minister parking but instead he redeploy him to another ministry. He begs her because he now start to understand what was writing in the wall of power.

Imagine the kind of Leaders we have in our country National Assembly, an Armed Robber like Ibori nominating an Attorney General of a nation where he has looted the treasury, and you expect such a candidate to be responsible.Definitely birds of thesame feathers flock together.

The so called Aondoakaa should have being allocated to an office of minister for unserious Nigerians. He is categorised under the group of those who don't want Nigeria to move an inch. Left for me he should be relieved of his appointment by Jonathan.

Aondoakaa is a disgrace to our rebranding campaigne.

This will show you the quality of men we have up there. In how many days he is singing a new song. This means that either he was acting out a script prepared by someone else or he is in the group of leaders that will just do anything including licking Dora's shoes just less than 2weeks after calling her names.
In both cases i recommend total disgrace as lesson and deterrent to his likes.
