Is acceptable to say "mengertikan" in place of "memahami"?

memahami = mengerti <== synonyms. ('to undesrtand')

'mengertikan' = to make (someone else) understand.

The sentence would have a different meaning:
'Kamu harus memahami saya.' = 'You must understand me.'
'Kamu harus mengerti saya.' = 'You must understand me.'
'Kamu harus mengertikan saya.' = 'You must make me understand.'

menjadikan (membuat) mengerti:
