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.

People like Aondoakaa are the ones destroying the progress of our dear country.He should be totally removed from the present government under the leadership of Dr.Goodluck Jonathan.He should go and be the commissioner for justice in his state....NOOOOOO...not qualified,to be the supervisory councillor for legal matters in his local government area...noooooooooo because he will contaminate the upcoming young polititians.He should be the legal advicer to his family alone...even that he is not qualified because he will be giving wrong pieces of advice to mislead the family.SO he should be a legal advicer to himself alone not even to his children.And if he misleads himself,then prison shall be the final home for himmmmmmmmmmm.......

I still insist that the drift of power from the hands of permanent north to the nails of ever never south is purely divine. If men were God, i wonder how much they would sell divine justice. All i know is that the tears of the poor majority shall flood off all those who share 95% of the national wealth among 5% of themselves,the evil cabal. They shall vomit the supposed salaries of millions of unemployed youths whom they blame for their vices.

'Go confront herself with what happened in NAFDAC'-This statement is ambiguous. Myke, please learn how to look before you leap. For somebody like you is really disappointing.

Finally, Prof Dora Akunyili has been vindicated by the actions of the lawmakers.
For Aondoaka, he should bury his face with shame.

Aondoakaa should keep quiet forever.
President Jonathan, you have only done 1/4 of what I need you to do.
The remaining 2 are: (1)Reinstate Ribadu
(2) Recall all illegally discharged corrupt cases by Aondokaa
(3) Give Nigerian steady Electricity and solve Niger Delta problems.

With these you will have no fear coming back home after your reign.

Aondoakaa truly speaks from the four compass points of his mouth. This man has no shame at all.

Aondoakaa, so you beg Akunyili. Why not beg and go to prison, you better go back to your Gboko and be practicing your law there.

Aondoakaa really acts like a child. When wole soyinka said he was talking from the four compasses of his mouth, possibly he took it lightly. Now that mouth of his is now destroying him. The basic rudiments of leadership are oblivious to him. He should better resign before his mouth will drag him to prison.
