Founder of the One Love Family, Sat Guru Maharaj ji, has appealed to President Muhammadu Buhari to appoint him as his ‘spiritual adviser’ even as the President is still battling with the selection of his second term team of ministers, special advisers, among others.
The heavily bearded spiritualist said his appointment into Buhari’s Next Level Team had become necessary because he could help the president write his name in gold in the hearts of Nigerians through formulation of legacy policies and their successful implementation.
Besides, Maharaj ji said Buhari badly needed him because other religious leaders who had participated in previous governments had failed the nation.
Maharaj ji made the request during a press conference to mark the 26 years ‘Anniversary Celebrations of Nigeria Declaration as the new Holy Land of the Universe.’ The event was held at Maharaj ji village, along Lagos/Ibadan Expressway.
The spiritualist named the preferred ministries he would want to serve as including the “Ministries of Water Resources, Agriculture, and Petroleum Resources.”
Apart from his request for appointment, the controversial cleric also spoke on other issues.
“The Federal Government should increase the reward for whistle-blowers to 10% in order to encourage more Nigerians to take up the challenges. The Alafin of Oyo should be made Chairman of the Council of Traditional Rulers in Nigeria ‘in consideration of his position from the inception of Project Nigeria as the leading king in the land,” Sat Guru said.
He added that the federal government needed to increase workers’ wages and improve on the welfare of judges in the country as a panacea to the temptation of receiving bribes directly or through cronies. He also called for the creation of state police, saying it would help improve the security situation in the country.
The cleric advised the federal government to reveal the names of those involved in the mismanagement of funds of some privatised national companies, including Nigerian Airways, Ajaokuta Steel, Delta Steel, Nigeria Electric Power Authority, among others.
He called for the creation of the Ministry for Culture and Tradition, and the establishment of a ‘social security system to give all unemployed high school graduates the sum of N6,000 , National Diploma holders a sum of N8,000, Higher National Diploma and Degree the sum of N15,000 monthly.’
He said such will take them away from criminal activities.
