You forgot to address the rest of my post; why pick and choose? Please go ahead and address it all:

It is what it is; the failure of the father continues to linger in the soul of the children.

My friends, mark it down: The fight against corruption will continue to move in circle as long as OBJ's mess (EFCC) continues to exist in Nigeria.

Could someone please tell me why I should quote or site a weak constitution?

Nigeria should be moving past the level of a public office holder doing what they so wish merely because they have the backing of the president. it is so shameful that those who talk about rule of law and efficiency are yet to site any section of the constitution that supports the Agf's clandestine mission.

if this is how president yaradua wishes to run his government then I will advice he quickly dissolves the electoral reform panel of justice mohamed uwais as he might need a bigger fraud to win any kind of poll in this country.

On the contrary if people like IBB had not patented and entrenched corruption, there really would have been no need for the "lousy" EFCC or the AGF aka "Chief Law Officer".

Lest we forget, while people like you were calling for IBB to come back, it was OBJ and his mess that ushered in this new "angelic" administration that is so clean. They are so clean and strong sticklers for the "rule of law" that they have decided that the best way to fight corruption is to pay lip service to it, at least so it seems. One thing is for sure, Yar Adua will be wasting the next four years making speeches if he really thinks that is the only way to tackle corruption.

into swiss banks? Your statement really speaks volume: I hate OBJ so I must hate EFCC!

EFCC and the rest of these clowns should have been abolished from day one. If this had taken place, we wouldn't be wasting time talking about the AGF.

There is certainly nothing wrong with doing away with OBJ's mess and puting something else more adequate together as a replacement.

The existence of the EFCC (OBJ's mess) will continue to breakdown the spirit of this new admin; absolutely nothing good can come out of this organization. It is over, their reputation is already greatly damaged and people will continue to cry foul play regardless of any accomplishment of this organization.

One doesn't have to be a scientist to figure out that at this point the existence of EFCC is causing more damage than anything else.

When I hear EFCC, I hear OBJ and it is very sad that many other great Nigerian citizens feel the same way

Why not just dissolve the headache for ever?

who will sack agf? pdp is no longer interested in sacking, all they need at the moment is reconcilation. a move to bring back those who left because of the selfish interest of obj in the party that made pdp a personal business.

in all, one need to know that yar adua is trying to right many things that obj wronged both partywise and nigeria as a whole.

atiku's case has been pending and nobody cares to know why and here comes kalu's issue.

we have to remember, these are two close persons, close to the pdp dealings and close obj and his regime. no matter how u look at it, obj has boundaries and limitations. ribadu knows and that was why during the obj admin, he(ribadu) must seek obj's consent before publishing any investigation. such was the situation until the intervention of the senate in their moves to liberate and make efcc an indepent body but to what extent has efcc been independent?

we must look at issues, dariye messed efcc up in his state and nothing happened. alams was picked up and threated like a baby but kalu has been talking since 1999 till date. he has been outspoken and he has challanged obj and efcc on many occassions. we must reflect these issues if efcc is using the same laws in handling all matters why is kalu an exceptional case and i bet u nothing will happen to the man who decleared obj and his carbinet illegal through his state law makers.

i love and respect his boldness and his criticisms has been the problem obj had with him so efcc shld tell us about other govs and leave the gentleman alone.

Mckren:

Why are you so perturbed with the position of the AGF?

It is clear to all that EFCC has a despicable reputation in regards to fighting corruption in Nigeria and extremely incompetent to get anything done effectively and efficiently.

But still in your book, this same sketchy EFCC is untouchable.

Please give me a break!

It is very certain to me that you're being selective with your views as usual.

I think you will be happy if RIBADU gets a chance to re-write the constitution of Nigeria.

AGF is only doing his job as designed and I'm sure that the president has his back 100%.

The main thing I see wrong with this Attorney General is that he does not realise the office of the Minister of Justice is a Corporately Conservative office. He handles the position as if it is the office of the Minister of Information (P.R.O).

Besides his excessively showy character, I don't see what else he's done wrong he's just going by the book.

I just hope he doesn't start attending all those ovation parties and owambe.

For the records:

If the statement that the so called order obtained by Kalu only emphasized that his fundamental human rights be respected, this AGF must tell Nigerians what version of "Rule of Law" he is quoting as according to the Nigerian constitution in section 35 subsection 1c this AGF is misleading the general public.

It is also worthy of note that EFCC had a court warrant of arrest for Kalu from a Federal high court Abuja before his arrest. Yet to this AGF what amounts to rule of law is mis-interpring the constitution, and placing priority on a court order obtained from a state court over a federal high court.

He must go.

there is nothing dictatorial in sacking a minister by the President, the constitution backs it and it has been done before anywhere in the world. Though if there is any decency in Aondoakaa he will resign on his own

I am simply calling for the AGF to be fired, I am not interested in sacking the National Assembly or

the governors you mentioned, just the AGF.

Those of you calling for the Sack of the Attorney General of the Federation are in love with Dictatorship.

Why don't you also call on the President to sack the entire National Assembly too?

Do you not know what it means for the Judiciary (the third major arm of Government) to be independent?

Soon you will call for the President to also sack 5 Governors and 2 Union Leaders.

And with this kind of dictatorial mindstate, some of you think you're better than Obasanjo.

See their mouth like "sack the AGF" why not even call for Yar'Adua to sack of the President of the Nigeria Bar Association?

See their mouth like sack.

While it's clear that the AGF should be fired for incompetence and for putting the interest of

a few ahead of the country's, I doubt very much if Yar Adua will heed that call now as the AGF

was essentially put there to act as proxy for the likes of Atiku, Kalu, and co., a "settlement"

of some sort.

If indeed the AGF had the interest of the country at heart and truly believed that OBJ and

the EFCC were going about the anti-corruption crusade the wrong away, one would have

expected him to have met with the EFCC or the ICPC several times by now and be pushing

for them to also reopen or expedite any ongoing investigations they may have had on those

percieved to have been shielded by OBJ, while at the same time emphasizing to them the

importance of operating within the confinement of the laws.

That type of "equal justice for all" or "rule of law for all" is what one would have expected

from an un-compromised AGF, not by attempting to squash pending court cases under very

false pretenses.

BigB1 for the records:

The title of the thread reads "Should AGF be sacked" not "Will he be sacked"

I expected the smart and independent thinker you are to give us legal and constitutional reasons why an AGF who lies and undermines public interest just to favour the interest of his friends should remain in office not telling us that all he does has the backing of the President.

Nobody cares whose backing it has, what we care about is whether this government respects the rule of law it is claiming to defend and whether they are acting in the interest of the generality of Nigerians.

Besides that you talk about not thinking like the average Nigerian, respectfully Sir, can you kindly tell us in the society that makes up those who you think like; what does a public officer have to do in office before he resigns.

@magneto:

Firstly, I'm not IBB's son, not even close.

Secondly, don't ever listen to MAMAJAMA, he's one confused individual who needs strong medication.

Finally, you need not to be in the circle to figure out Nigerian politics. All it requires is common sense, wisdom and ability not to think like a typical Nigerian.

You must allow your mind to traverse out of the box, always view things from a different angle, not from the angles they've designed for you, you must not be bias, speak out and stick to your guns and finally you must approve or see yourself as the leader at all time.

Very honest, sincere and a best friend anyone could ever have.

Who d hell cares if he's IBB's son, what matters is everybody's right 2 his or her opinion, if he thinks Aondakaa should stay, well that's his opinion, for me I know for sure that Aondakaa lacks the pedigree, integrity and intellectual standards to b named d nation's AGF at this delicate time of total mreformation.

BIGB1 you can not be part of the government and criticize the people that employee you.  such thing is unheard of in any country.  people relinquished their position and criticize from the outside.  That will give you dignity and credibility

Colling Powell did resigned out of the Bush administration before he faults the regime.  There are civilized way of resolving issues and not running to the media and running his mouth like a Guinea pig

Why didn't he set up a meeting with the EFCC management team to discussed their differences?  Why didn't he consult the president?

He should be FIRED.  but we all know he wont be fired its too early to say.

We are not unmindful of the fact that Micheal Aondoakaa may be doing Yaradua's dirty job

But the difference between democracy and dictatorship is that Yaradua needs to be pretending to do the wish of the people and that is why we protest.

It is too early for President Yaradua to allow his administration to be blackmailed thus he is likely to re-appoint another AGF who will bring finesse in doing the President's dirty job.

Aondokaa must go,

and any attempt to sack Aondoakaa and Ribadu together will be resisted because all through this mudslinging Ribadu has acted professionally and kept silent except for when his media correspondent needed to denie EFCC appologising to anyone.

Politics is a devil.

In order to make adjustment or correct messy situation, there will always be certain steps taken by the government that probably wouldn't make any sense to you and I.

And this is a good example.

In fact, United States continues to face their own political issues on a regular; which result into making unique and senseless decisions. These decisions may not make sense, but trust me, there is reason for every single action.

That is politics.

AGF is not going anywhere, he's only doing what is designed to correct things.

Absolutely[b] NO[/b].

For what?

The inner circle  clearly understands what AGF is currently going through. The bed is already setup by OBJ's regime and it will not be easy to get things back on track, especially when you have been informed not to touch certain individuals e.g OBJ, Odili and many more.

FYI: stop wasting your time, AGF is in a position where all his decisions will not be approved without the consent of the president; hence the man is not going anywhere and his voice is indirectly the voice of the president.

He has been selected for these duties to rectify some of the mess OBJ left behind and aggregate the divided nation.

It will take some time for us to realize what this admin is trying to accomplish by taking these steps.

Stay cool and see what happens.

as a matter of fact it is the AGF who ignored EFCC's court warrant obtained legally from an Abuja high court at a date later than the order Kalu claims to have.

The AGF is selectively quoting only aspects of the constitution that supports his clandestine mission.
