FORMER Attorney General and Minister of Justice, Michael Kaase Aondoakaa, has debunked insinuations that he has been barred from holding public office.

Aondoakaa who fielded questions from newsmen in Makurdi at the APC secretariat on Thursday after declaring his intention to the party to contest the 2023 gubernatorial race in Benue State on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, (APC).

He said the whole issue relating to his purported ban from holding public office is politics stressing that, “They have been saying that but they have never quoted the part that said I have been barred.”

The former AGF, however, said he is contesting political office and not public office and described the whole exercise targeted at tarnishing his image as thrash.

On his visit to the APC secretariat in Makurdi, Aondoakaa said: “I want to declare my intention to contest for the governorship of Benue State on the ticket of APC, I gave them my mission statement.”

He said doesn’t want to talk about the current PDP administration. “I don’t want to talk about this administration. Actually, I talk about what I can do. What this administration has done is left for people to see.

“You know what they have done, you know what they have done wrong. It’s not for me. I come to say what I can do. So, I don’t want to talk about this administration.

“He’s the governor, he’s doing the best he can do, that’s left for him and the people of Benue State. It’s not for me to come and say what he has done wrong.

“I am telling people what I will do that is right. One, I say in six months time, the IDPs camps will be closed down and people will be enabled with foodstuffs, seeds and a token of N1,000.00 to go and start their lives and I will use the money used for feeding in the IDPs camps to enhance security within the environment.

“I will also ensure that the livestock guards work harmoniously with other security agents in the state to ensure that if there’s infraction by any group of people, whether herdsmen, into farmer’s farmyard, the dispute will be settled right there.

“If you have destroyed the farmer’s property, you pay right there. It’s not the question of bringing the livestock guard to arrest the person to Makurdi and the farmer is left there and there will be reprisals. It will be a win-win situation, the farmer wins and eveverybody wins.”
