Naija News understands that 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’ held at Maharaj Ji village, along Lagos/Ibadan Expressway.
According to him, becoming Buhari’s ‘spiritual adviser’ became necessary because other religious groups and their leaders have failed.
The controversial cleric said among his expectations was for President Buhari to appoint him to oversee the ministries of water resources, agriculture, and oil and gas in Mr Buhari’s second term.
Apart from his request for an appointment, Maharaj Ji, who identifies himself as the living perfect master and saviour of the universe, also spoke on other issues which he advised the Federal Government to address.
According to him, the federal government needs to increase the wages and improve on the welfare of judges in the country to stop the temptation of receiving bribes directly or through agents. He also called for the creation of state police, saying it would help improve the security situation in the country.
Maharaj Ji advised the Buhari-led government to reveal the names of those involved in the mismanagement of funds of some privatised Nigerian companies, including Nigerian Airways, Ajaokuta Steel, Delta Steel, Nigeria Electric Power Authority among others.
The self-acclaimed “saviour of the universe”, 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.
His words: “The Federal Government should increase the reward for whistleblower to 10% in order to encourage more Nigerians to take up the challenges, Alaafin of Oyo should be made Chairman of the Council of Traditional Rulers in Nigeria ‘in consideration of his position from the inception of the project Nigeria as the leading king of the land,” he said.
