The Yoruba socio-cultural group, Afenifere has called on President Buhari to present the name of the Chief Justice of Nigeria (CJN), Justice Walter Onnoghen for confirmation.

Afenifere also described the failure of the President to send Onnoghen’s name to the National Assembly for confirmation, as an assault on the Nigeria’s constitution.
According to Vanguard, the group also condemned the killings of innocent people in Southern kaduna by suspected Fulani herdsmen.
Speaking after its monthly meeting, Afenifere’s spokesman, Mr Yinka Odumakin, issued a statement saying “Afenifere was worried that almost few days to the expiration of the three months tenure in acting capacity allowed by our constitution, the President has refused to forward the recommendations of NJC to the National Assembly for confirmation.

“We see this as an assault on the constitution if the three months expire and he is not confirmed as CJN of Nigeria. It will be an assault on our constitution and an attempt to crudely end a carrier of a worthy Nigerian.
“Therefore we call on Mr President to within the few days left to the expiration of the acting tenure of Justice Onnoghen send his name to the Senate for confirmation as Nigeria CJN as he is the man in line because that is what the constitution says.”
Also, the Cross River state caucus in the National Assembly urged President Muhammadu Buhari to send Walter Onnoghen's name to the Senate for confirmation as Chief Justice of the Nigeria (CJN).
