July 18, (THEWILL) – The founder of One Love Family, Sat Guru Maharaj ji, in this interactive session with journalists held in Lagos, speaks on issues as they affect the nation. AYO ESAN was there.  Excerpts:


We have the Nigerian Army and the Nigeria Police. Those institutions must be made to work. About 15 years ago, I recommended that the salary starting point for new recruits in the police should be N250, 000 plus free accommodation and the salary starting point for new recruits in the Army should be N350,000 with accommodation. Those protecting the citizens must be well paid.

You can see school children being kidnapped by bandits and their families engaging in discussion with the kidnappers for their release. This is too bad.

President Muhammadu Buhari must wake up to his responsibility and sack all the ministers or retain few ones who are working hard . The three tiers of government must be very effective and the media must will ensure that all the parasites around the President, who are after money, are removed. The mass media has a great role to play and if it fails, Nigeria will disappear.

Constituency Funding

The issue of constituency Fund should be investigated by the media. Let there be checks on each and every one of our legislators . How much bribe did they receive? Let us start from 2015 to date and make a forensic audit. This is the point we are now. If you want to be a leader, then you must be ready to account for your actions. If you don’t want to do that, then leave the government.

Agitation for Oduduwa Republic

The President must review his appointments and change his attitude and behaviour, otherwise, he is going to be dropped in the dustbin of history. Sunday Igboho’s agitation for Oduduwa Republic is due to the lacklustre performance of the present Federal Government. The government needs to wake up. I have advised our fellow brothers and sisters in the states that with the situation now, if they have any project that will make the states stronger, they should introduced it. When a state is strong, there will be no need for agitation. Look at Florida, the wealthiest state in the world, for example.

Sunday Igboho and the likes are coming out because the government has not been able to move at the pace the people want it to move. Somebody is saying all the appointments at the federal level are given to the Fulani. In all the northern towns, we have Emirs. They have pushed the original Hausa people aside. The only area they have not been able to penetrate is Bornu because they have a Shehu there and he is very much awake. I believe that is what is just happening.

So Sunday Igboho, Nnamdi Kanu and many others are just trying to express the feelings of all Nigerians. Many Igbohos and Kanus are going to come up, if the government doesn’t clear what is going on.


The federal executive must not be dictatorial. The National Assembly must pass laws for the common good of Nigerians and the judiciary must not be sterilised. Yes, where people are not well paid, they may be tempted. In the last few years , we have seen how many judges that have been sacked in so many countries.

The President must not see himself as the President of the Fulani. He must see himself as the father of all.

Gagging the media

How could you detain a journalist? How do you want to gag the media and say this is hate speech and it is going to be taken up by a government agency or minister? That is wrong. It is the judiciary that must determine what  is against the law or not. What the Minister of Information and Culture, Lai Mohammed, will call hate speech should be determined by the judiciary.

We don’t know how the former Acting Chairman of the EFCC, Ibrahim Magu, left office. What are the charges against him? That should not be hidden. We want the government to be transparent.
