The   founder of  the One Love Family sect, Ibadan, Satguru Maharaji, on Friday called for  a law stipulating a  25-year jail term for any public servant caught diverting workers’  salaries to personal use.

Maharaj ji made the call  in Ibadan while addressing newsmen on activities marking the  24th anniversary  of his declaration of Nigeria as the new holy land of the universe.

He said  some public servants often  divert salaries of workers to  banks  with the  intention of  reaping monetary  gains in  interest.

“ Such officials  should be jailed 25 years with hard labour and should also be stopped from  holding public office.

“ Doing this would deter would be offenders as well as  reduce the level of corruption in the public service and in Nigeria in general,’’ he said.

Maharaj ji said God had  blessed  the country with the All Progressives Congress (APC) government which initiated change, adding that the administration must be supported in the anti-graft campaign.

The sect leader also called on government at all levels to urgently tackle the issue of  indecent dressing, especially among females.

He ascribed the development to films which promote pornography, especially among youths.

The sect leader further  decried  the recent issuance of ultimatum to Igbos in the north to quit the region, saying this was capable of destabilising the country.

He  called on the Federal Government to be proactive in containing the threat, especially coming during  the Ramadan.

Maharaj  ji also called for persistent prayers by Nigerians for President Muhammadu Buhari to enable him  recover his health and continue his transformation initiatives.
