The Emir of Ilorin, Alhaji Ibrahim Sulu-Gambari, says Nigeria needs a benevolent dictator to put things right in the country.

He spoke on the sidelines of the sensitisation visit of the Central Bank of Nigeria on the redesigned Naira notes on Monday.

Sulu-Gambari, who spoke at his palace where the sensitisation was held, said Nigeria lacks good leadership in spite of good ratings the country has all over the world.

The First Class traditional ruler said: Nigeria is already dangling with the present situation.

“We pray it should not collapse.

“We are well rated all over the world.

“It’s only leadership we lack.

“It was only General Murtala Muhammed’s six months tenure that has been good for the country.

“Afterwards we have never had any government like his.

“What we need is a benevolent dictator to put things in place.”
