The known frankly speaking clergyman said Nigeria as a country is not bad, stressing that every countries have their various and peculiar challenges, noting that those who travelled out did that because they are optimistic of their future in foreign lands
‘Many Nigerians are leaving the country not because the country is bad, but because the countries they are traveling to usually express optimism and hope. Every nation has its peculiar challenges’, Achudume said.
Penpushing further reports that Achudume speaking on the low turnout of prospective electorate to pick up their Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs), ahead of the election, advised the Independent National Electoral Commission,(INEC), to make use of the contact details of such individuals to ensure seamless collection of the cards in order not to disenfranchise potential electorate and increase people’s participation in the election

The fearless cleric identified that the nation’s leaders are not building hope, thereby making people to be losing hope in the country, stressing that it was therefore unnecessary to start pre-empting a likely cancellation of the 2023 general elections.
