Should rulers hide secrets from population?

SHAFAQNA – In one of his sermons, Imam Ali (AS) said: Beware; your right on me is that except the war secrets, I do not hide any secret from you, and do not do anything without consulting you, except the religious decrees; and do not fail in observing your rights, and  (complete all that promised) in the allocated time; and treat you all equally [1].
