Nigeria’s challenges not beyond redemption – CAN president

By Michael Adesanya/Abeokuta
The National President, Christian  Association of Nigeria (CAN), Dr. Olasupo Ayokunle, on Monday, submitted that the numerous challenges confronting the country are not beyond redemption, if the nation’s constitution is completely reviewed.
Ayokunle stated this while speaking on the State of the Nation: The Position of the Church at the Holy Convocation 2021 of the Victory Life Bible Church (VLBC), Abeokuta, under the leadership of Apostle Lawrence Achudume.
The CAN President noted that the country found itself in a precarious  situation as a result of bad leadership, which cannot be put at the doorstep of any administration.
He maintained that Nigeria needs a patriotic and selfless leaders that would do things aright with the fear of God and the interest humanity.
Ayokunle identified corruption, banditry, insecurity, lopsided appointments, unemployment, poor infrastructure and bad economy, among others, as major issues that must be tackled headlong for peace and progress to reign.
He argued that the Buhari administration had not been doing enough in addressing these challenges.
While preferring solutions, the clergyman advocated for a dual constitution which must be drawn for one circular constitution.
He also called for the removal of immunity of political leaders; just as he charged Christians in positions of authority to be shining light.
