The founder of One Love sect, Satguru Maharaj Ji has proposed that the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC), Independent Corrupt Practices and other related offences Commission, (ICPC) should be in charge of screening the ministerial nominees instead of the Senates.
Addressing the newsmen on Saturday in Ibadan, he said such screening by the anti-graft agencies would help to ascertain the integrity of the 43 nominees of President Muhammadu Buhari being screened by the Senate.
He called on the President to be more proactive in the recovery of the nation’s economy and its stolen wealth.
Reacting to Shiites protest, MaharajJi frowned at the unconstitutional activities of the Islamic Movement in Nigeria (IMN) urging the President not to treat such with kid’s gloves.
“Nigeria is a country with constitutional laws restricting protests. How can a group of people block the passage way of the Chief of Army Staff?
“Such act is a coup against the nation and it is the reason for their arrest. You can’t do such in Europe, Germany or US.
“Why should they result to protests, killings and destroying people’s properties?.
“I do not support violence of any kind. It is craziness for anyone or group to say they want to fight the government.
“The case is in court and they should allow the court determine it,’’ he said.
MaharajJi called on the Yoruba race to rally round their monarchs including Alaafin of Oyo, Ooni of Ife, Olubadan of Ibadan, towards finding solution to the insecurity ravaging their region.
He also urged the Monarchs to empower the “Agbekoya’’ group and other socio-cultural groups in the region, to chase out criminal elements from the region.
MaharajJi stressed the need for the establishment of state police, adding that it will be a permanent solution to insecurity in the country.
