Amanpour. Facebook viewers applauded the interview with Nigerian Attorney General, Michael Aondoakaa and Nigerian author, and Nobel laureate, Wole Sonyika. The vast majority expressed a deep disappointment for the blatant lies believed to be stated by the Attorney General, Mr. Aondoakaa followed by strong accusations that doubted his credibility as a leader. Nigerian viewers who commented, “Knew how the PDP operated in reality”, also accused the Nigerian political party PDP of fraud and corruption. On the opposite side, most viewers supported Mr. Sonyika’s theories and his stance regarding the political future of Nigeria and described him as “a true statesman and a patriot.” Additionally, Amanpour Email viewers commended the show Unattainable Beauty that discussed a French lawmaker that introduced legislation to label retouched photos from advertising to magazines spreads. While the majority of the audience felt this was a good step toward the restoration of self-esteem in women, especially in teenagers, others, commented “retouching photos was the effect, not the cause” and that this action was not deceitful but rather an attempt to show beauty.

Nigeria most corrupt & inept Attorney General of the federation, Mr. Aondoakaa who soyinka called a liar is suspiciously being removed as attorney general & redeployed as Minister of Special duties
I am watching your show now and heard Diane Von Furstenberg talk about the age of models and not promoting super-skinny ones. I'd like to bring your (and your viewers') attention to what I received today as an ad on my Yahoo mail - from Kenneth Cole/Nordstrom's. I thought it was outrageous and offensive. When you click to the actual Kenneth Cole site, the models look normal. Where can someone complain about the promotion of a minus-zero, underage model?
Great show about retouching fashion photos – still watching. As a designer i have an interest in this, but retouching is the effect, not the cause. Just look at the pictures women put on the social networking and dating sites. My guess is that the pictures put on such sites are on average 3 years younger than actual age. They do not do this to deceive, they just want to present themselves as beautifully as possible. Focus on health (including mental self image) and fitness programs, and the beauty will naturally follow.
Tesleem Lawal AMANPOUR, thank you for the insightful interview...as Soyinka rightly said, we need to do away with PDP in Nigeria...I hope Jonathan can act fast on the Yar Adua's pending issue... I actually want him to continue and see through the Niger Delta issue.. he is from that area, so it should not pose any serious problem for him...if he is sincere.
Doris Okpara I cant imagine the Attorney General lying so openly,i sure will use those words Wole Soyinka used.There is a power vacuum.Come down to nigeria and confirm more of this because this was just a chip. Just as our Nobel Laureate said-The political party PDP has alot to answer for this. The Labour Congress was about going for Civic Disobedience this week .it shows we all have been hurt....
Charles C. Iwuala The truth is very clear, Soyinka is a true statesman and a patriot, he calls a spade a spade..It is a shame however that we have an AG who can come out and lie to the whole world when we all know the truth. Can't be surprised if the AG comes out tomorrow to argue tha the colour of our national flag is Red..Blue..Yellow!
Emmanuel Norberto we are tired of the lies PDP members are saying especially DAVID MARK AND THE ATTORNEY GENERAL,MR WOLE IS RIGHT.
Okechukwu Cavin Madubuaku You can imagine what an A.G of a country can say to the world, he cant even interpret a common part of the law. If we have 100 outspoken people like Wole Soyinka who stands by the truth and ignore the juicy,money driven and corrupt goverment offers. then Nigeria will become the power house economy in Africa, we have all it takes.
