Michael Aondoakaa Career
He became a senior partner of a law firm for 18 years. While helping two of his friends, Ogiri Ajene, former deputy governor of Benue State and Professor Daniel Saror to secure nomination for ministerial appointment, he was invited to meet President Umaru Musa Yar’Adua, and during the interview was offered the post of Attorney General until February 10, 2010 when he was removed in controversial circumstances by the Acting President Goodluck Jonathan.
He was appointed Minister of Justice on 26 July 2007. He was a member of a sub-committee to review the report of Justice Mohammed Uwais committee on electoral reform.
The sub-committee assisted in producing a white paper which sparked controversy because it reversed some recommendations of the Uwais committee. It recommended that the President continue to appoint the chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), among other changes.
He opposed sacking Maurice Iwu, chairman of INEC, despite criticism of Iwu’s conduct of the 2007 elections. He objected to the dissolution of local governments in Ondo State by Olusegun Mimiko, the new governor, although a High Court in Ondo supported the action.
The United States diplomatic cables leak turned out that the drug company Pfizer had hired private investigators to find evidence against Aondoakaa to pressure him into dropping charges against the company over claims that a new antibiotic had caused harm to children.
In 2010, he was stripped of the rank of Senior Advocate of Nigeria by the Legal Practitioners Disciplinary Committee on the strength of several petitions written against him for actions taken while in Office as Attorney General of the Federation.
