Satguru Maharaji has said that President Muhammadu Buhari, Bola Tinubu, and other elder statesmen in the country should call themselves to order and provide solution to the rampant herdsmen violence in Nigeria.
The living perfect master, as he is called, said this to newsmen at the Maharaji Ji village in Lagos. He attributed the practice of what he referred to as 'timocracy' as against democracy by the leaders led to the insecurity currently ravaging the country, Nigeria Tribune reports.
The faithful therefore, urged Nigerians to hold leaders accountable for the poor state of security since they are charged with the responsibility of protecting the lives and properties of citizens.
He said: “In the face of all this timocracy, no nation in the world has been able to practice democracy. Governance is about improving the standard quality of lives of the citizenry.
Speaking further, Maharaji stated that after spending massive sums of money in the anti-graft war, the federal government has nothing to show for the huge expenses, adding that politicians should give opportunity for youngsters to fully take part in politics.
He said: “We need a leader we can trust and non-tribalist because the world is changing and the President needs divine knowledge to eschew himself from marauders.”
Satguru enjoined Nigerians to support the president in his administration, despite his flaws in governance.
Satguru said: “We are to assist him. Give honour to whom honour is due. Buhari needs our love and support because he is already there. Buhari is trying. He is the first ever president in the history of Africa that has taken the bull by the horn. Tell the new PDP or new APC codeine dey here.”
