The General Overseer, Victory Life Bible Church , VLBC ,International, Apostle Lawrence Achudume who brought this to the front burner during an interaction with men of the pen profession in Abeokuta, the Ogun State capital saw the need for the country’s Numero uno,President Mohammadu Buhari to ensure that the much desired results about the fight against Corruption is achieved .

Nothing that leadership is a great task that requires determination and firmness, Apostle Achudume stressed that the time has come for members of the public to put up measures to query those at the helms of affairs found wanting adding that corruption will continue until the masses rise up against it without fear of intimidation and harassment.

Apostle Achudume who lauded the leadership style of the main man in the Gateway State, Prince Dapo Abiodun noted that governance does not require unnecessary noise adding that the main concern of those at the helms of affairs should be good governance geared towards making life worth living for the governed especially the downtrodden.
