Founder of One Love Family, Mr Sat Guru Maharaj Ji, has called on Nigerians irrespective of party affiliation to support President Muhammadu Buhari, at all times, to salvage the nation's economy.
He made the call while addressing journalists at a press conference in Ibadan as part of activities to mark what he described as the 26th anniversary of Nigeria as the "New Holy Land of the Universe and Leader Nation of The World."
He said, “Nigerians transit from one day to the next year bereft of the real factors and actual forces playing out against Nigeria’s golden destiny. Buhari is not the architect of the Nigerian muddle.
"Yes, he promised to fix Nigeria. He vowed to end corruption in the economy. Today, our economy is gasping worse than it did at the mercy of Buhari’s profligate predecessors.”
He insisted that Buhari inherited an extensively ravaged economy, adding that what he needed from Nigerians is their support as he cannot do it alone.
Maharaj Ji, who expressed support for Mr Buhari, said the president would never hand over Nigeria as a commodity to ”auctioneers.”
“The holding of needless parties is no longer common. No more free cash. These are realities that should jolt Nigerians to think deep in their best interest.
”The maiden steps to national liberation and prosperity are naturally tedious, very painful. Like determined soldiers, a people desirous of glory must push through pain to get to victory
”When you find those who profit from raping and robbing your family demanding the head of the clan’s new leader, it simply tells that the new king is working against their criminality.
“Today, familiar and highly notorious western imperialist gangs against his (Buhari) regime want him out as much as mis-educated, ill-informed and long-suffering Nigerian masses do. Same desire, different interests,’’ he said.
He also bemoaned incessant killings across the country, calling on the president to convene a stakeholders’ summit involving traditional rulers and community leaders toward evolving strategies to tackle the menace.
He however lauded security and para-military agencies which adhered strictly to the president’s directive to ensure the votes of the people counted during the general elections, warning politicians to stop using innocent and jobless Nigerians to promote violence in the country.
He said,“Those politicians involved in the act should be warned to desist or be ready to face judgment physically or spiritually since what you sow you reap."
