The Founder of the One Love Family, Guru Maharaj Ji has advocated the inclusion of African gods into oath-taking to eradicate corruption in Nigeria.
He said that the current practice of swearing by the Bible or Quran has proved ineffective in dissuading oath-takers from violation of their oaths.
“We should include African gods – Ogun, Ifa, and Sango – in oath swearing in courts and inaugural ceremonies to avoid corruption completely.
“People swear with the Bible and Quran and get away unpunished for mismanagement of human and material resources.
“Fraud and scandals have harmed society, which has led to the destruction of many families and industries,” The Sun quoted the cleric as saying during a press conference.
Meanwhile, Maharaj Ji hailed Yoruba activist, Sunday Igboho for challenging criminal herdsmen in the South-West geopolitical zone.
“This is to remind you once again that Sunday Igboho must be given a national award for exposing the criminal herdsmen, kidnappers, and extortionist Fulani terrorists hiding in Ibarapa town in Oyo State.
“The Southwest governors should give him an award. He is as good as any black man who has seen the light,” Maharaj Ji stated.
