The 2018 Golden Age life festival has come and gone but left an indelible imprint on the minds of many that attended this year event.
The 7-day celebration which marked with several activities ended last Saturday with a world press conference at the Universal Headquarters, Maharaji Village in Ibadan.
The self-acclaimed living master while addressing the media drawn from Lagos and Ibadan chronicled on spontaneous issues bordering on the state of the nation.
“ I am so happy this year edition of Golden Age celebration is ending on a good note but the programme cannot end not addressing the nation”.
“It has become a tradition for us”.
Briefing the media on the proposed sale of Ajaokuta Steel Company, Maharaji said auctioning Nigeria’s economic assets is a feature of neo-liberal globalization which sets circumstantially weak economies like Nigeria up for sale.
Maharaji, however, advised the president to ignore all proposals made to sell Ajaokuta Steels.
He noted that a sustainable deal that protects Nigeria’s right and access to using the company to transform its economic state should be worked out and duly implemented.
Commenting on the 2019 general election, Marahaji said he foresees a free and fair election, with President Muhammadu Buhari winning the second term.
“It is hypocritical for any southerner to field a candidate let alone desire to contest the presidential elections.
The North has to complete its second tenure for now until we change the rule of law”, Marahaji stated.
Marahaji in his conclusion appealed to ASUU to continue negotiating with the federal government. Until they reach an agreement in solving the underlying issues.
He added that the foregoing problems need to be handled as a matter of urgency in order not to waste away Nigeria’s future potentials.
