An elder statesman, Alhaji Abdulrauf Tijjani has posited that Nigerian population is unguided. He said this made impossible for the leadership to control, hence the social effect the country in going through. His words; “Look at the implosion! Nigeria population is unguided, and the leader has no skill to control that population. So the social effect is what we are seeing now”.
He made the revelation in Abuja recently at an event to remember late M. D. Yusuf, a former inspector General of Police. He said M. D. Yusuf believed that what it takes to survive is little unlike the present generation who believe that one needs to have everything to survive. He added that Yusuf M.D. Yusuf belongs to a generation of divine group of people.
On who is a spiritual father, he said he does not know anybody as a spiritual father, rather he said the issue is how to improve morality. “You see there is one point of error when you say spiritual fathers. How do you qualify somebody as a spiritual father? The issue is how do we improve the morality? both in governance, at home, and in the religious circle. Without morality there will not be spiritual father because injustice is not the act of God. So I cannot dwell on that preaching of a spiritual father, because I don’t know who is a spiritual father”, said.
He says the greatest problem of the country is insecurity which is occasioned by unchecked population explosion. “Any school management will tell you that once you develop more than what you can supervise, you collapse. Nobody cares about population explosion”, he noted.
He added that once the population is monitored, it will help in reducing insecurity like the Boko Haram.
