A prominent Yoruba group, Afenifere, has joined the growing number of Nigerians demanding for a cabinet shake-up at the national level of government in Nigeria.

Though it did not mention Rotimi Amaechi, the country’s transport minister was one of those allegedly indicted by some of the judges recently arrested in a sting operation carried out by operatives of the Department of State Services (DSS).

The DSS also said it found various sums of money, both in local and foreign currencies in the homes of some of the judges raided and arrested.

Afenifere asked Buhari to sack all those that have been indicted of corruption in his government.

The presidency has constantly maintained that anyone who has evidence of corruption against any member of the cabinet should produce same for such a member to be prosecuted and accorded punishment.

The Punch reports that in a communique issued at the end of the monthly meeting of the group in Ondo state under Pa Reuben Fasoranti, and read by the publicity secretary, Yinka Odumakin, the group said: “For the ministers who have been mentioned for attempting to pervert the course of justice , we are asking that such ministers should step aside immediately as ministers of Federal Republic of Nigeria.

“After that, they should go through due process of the law to either ascertain their innocence or not, they should be punished according to the laws of the land.

“So we cannot be saying only judges that have accused should be investigated. Ministers too, who have been accused should step aside and face prosecution.”

Afenifere also queried the way the DSS raided the homes of the judges, adding: “Investigating corruption is within the purview of the EFCC, ICPC and the police.”
