Probe All Buhari’s Ministers Now, Abuja Lawyer Tells Anti Graft Agencies, FG

An based lawyer and human rights activist, Pelumi Olajengbesi, has called for the immediate commencement of probe of all cabinet ministers in the President Muhammadu Buhari administration.

The lawyer in a statement he issued on Friday in Abuja  Friday, stated that it has become imperative and matter of national importance that the cabinet members are made to give account of their service. He hinged his call on the startling revelations that keep emanating from the ongoing trial of the the former governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN), Mr. Godwin Emefiele which has revealed massive uncontrolled looting of public resources under the nose of Buhari.

The lawyer said that anti-graft agencies like the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) among others should swing into action and ensure that no culprit is spared.

Part of the statement reads:

“The audacity of those in power and their criminal influence is becoming too much and must be stopped.

“The EFCC must not stop at just the former CBN Governor Godwin, Emefiele, but should carry out an entire audit of principal actors who served under the administration of former President Muhammadu Buhari. There should be a deterrent for bad behavior

“Again, the case of the suspended Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer of the Rural Electrification Agency, Ahmad Salihijo over alleged N1.2bn fraud is fresh, and a pointer to the gross abuse of power by those who served under Buhari.

“Emefiele and all those who served under the Buhari adminis8⅞ÿÿtration should be properly audited and given a chance to clear their names as the corruption that manifested under that government is gargantuan.”

Aside from the ongoing trial of Emefiele, many Nigerians believe that the former minister of aviation, Hon. Hadi Sirika, former minister of Humanitarian Affairs, Disaster Management and Social Development, Sadiya Umar Farouk, former Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, Ms. Zainab Ahmed among other ministers of the Buhari regime need to answer some questions.

Olajengbesi, is the Managing Partner of the law firm, Law Corridor.
