According to him, the FG should file the charges against them for entering into a sham contract with some unscrupulous Nigerians
Aondoakaa insisted that the contract was illegal because it was not approved by the federal executive Council
Michael Aondoakaa, a former attorney-general of the federation from 2007 to 2010, has called on the federal government to file corruption charges against representatives of the Process and Industrial Developments P&ID.
According to the former AG, the charges should be filed against them for entering into a sham contract with some unscrupulous Nigerians.
Aondoakaa disclosed this during an interview with Sunrise Daily on Channels Television on Monday, September 2.
“Everyone involved must face the law including the foreigner. You cannot do this in the United states,” he said.
According to him, the contract was illegal because it was not approved by the federal executive Council.
Going further, he added that there was no budgetary provision for such a contract.
“This happened in secrecy. I contacted the DG of the Infrastructural Regulatory Commission and he was also shocked. Everything that is coming to us now is shocking. Ignorance of law is no excuse. If you are a foreign country coming to Nigeria, you ought to know the law. You ought to know if the contract was appropriated in the budget,” he said.
Meanwhile, we had reported earlier that Aondoakaa backed President Muhammadu Buhari-led administrations resolve to probe the $9.6 billion United Kingdom (UK)assets forfeiture judgement against Nigeria.
He said: “As the then Chief Law Officer of the federation and a member of the FEC, I can tell you that no such contract was brought for deliberation to the best of my knowledge”.
