Famous Spiritual leader of One Love Family, Sat Guru Maharaj Ji says the best way to tackle the Boko Haram insurgence in the country is for people to go back to their various traditions and cultures.
In an interview with City People this week, Maharaj Ji said the intervention of the international community was a welcomed idea and that it would make the fight against Boko Haram a lot easier because unlike Nigerians, the foreigners know that there is a Christ of this age, that is him (Maharaj Ji), walking on the planet and so carrying him along in the fight would bring a stop to acts of terrorism.

Asked what his take is on the present state of insecurity in Nigeria, Maharaj Ji said;
"Very simple. Because there is no security challenge per say, except for the fact that the Northern oligarchy believes Nigeria belongs to them. They don't believe in anybody whether you are from the South-South, South-East or South-West. They feel that Nigeria is an Hausa country and it is not, we have three regions. We have major tribes. Yoruba in the South-West, Ibo in the South-East, then the South-South the Ijaws etc. The North must accept that Ibo, Yoruba, Ijaw, Itsekiri, Urhobo...we are all one Nigeria, that is what is worrying them. Then again, religion. They should know that God has no religion. The only religion of God is accepting you the way you are. If I don't accept you, how will the place be okay for us?
He also spoke on the assistance being rendered to Nigeria by the international community, saying there is no shame in asking for help.
"There is no problem asking for what you need if you don't have it. No country has exclusive power over improvement in technology. There is no how under the present conditions Nigerians should fear asking the Americans for help or the British or the Germans. If there is going to be any fear, it is still going to be from the north. At the beginning, our fathers just gave in like that, but this time, we are not going to give in, no more. The only solution to Boko Haram menace is for us to go back to our traditions and culture. This time we have to go into tradition and culture to find the real ideal power to be able to sort or mediate and get things sorted out. People should not be afraid. They are going to assist.
They are going to help and I know that. If I look at it from the higher point of view, it is time for them too to come and tap from the special grace from Nigeria because they unlike our people know that there is a Christ of this age walking on planet earth and so this situation is for them to carry him along so that all these up and downs, crises in all these places could actually stop" he said.
Sat Guru Maharaj Ji also spoke on the Super Eagles going for the World Cup. He said they can win the World cup only if they stay away from wearing blue pants throughout the competition.
"I have given my recommendations and I don't know how Nigerians feel about it. I have told them that they can win this cup if they stop using blue jersey. They have accepted but what about blue pants? They should do away with it. Keshi must inspect all the pants they are wearing. I am begging them throughout this competition, its a national affair and not Super Eagles of Lagos but Super Eagles of Nigeria" he said
