Sat Guru Maharaj Ji, founder of One Love Family, has called on the President-elect, Muhammadu Buhari, and governors-elect to make the welfare of Nigerian workers their priorities.

Maharaj Ji gave the advice during the 28th anniversary of the establishment of his Maharaj Ji Village in Ibadan, Oyo State, on Saturday.

He said the advice became necessary in order to increase the productivity of Nigerian workers and move the country forward.

According to him, civil servants should not be subjected to hardship before their salaries are paid. He said civil servants have contributed a lot to the development of the country in one way or the other.

“The pensioners too should be paid their entitlements when due because they served the country before their retirement. Some pensioners have died of hunger because their entitlements are not paid on time.

“If the incoming administration can tackle this, it would make Buhari and governors-elect to make history, where other Nigerian leaders failed,” he said.

Maharaj Ji also called on the incoming administration to run a sincere, transparent and inclusive government.

“Project allocation and execution should be equally distributed so that every citizen would benefit from the dividends of democracy. No section of the country should be singled out for development to the detriment of the others.

“Employment and appointment opportunities must be on merit and be equitably distributed,” he said.

He stressed that Buhari must ensure that elections at the local government level are held in line with provisions of the Constitution. Maharaj Ji said he was ready to provide solution to Nigeria’s spiritual problem if invited to do so.
