In a statement in Abuja, on the church’s 13th anniversary service, Odikanwa stated that emphasis on infrastructural development and job creation would bring about a drastic reduction in the rate of criminal activities recorded across the country.

According to him, the yearly budgetary allocation by the Federal and state governments had not had any significant impact on the lives of majority of Nigerians, while he described poverty as the root cause of the high rate of criminality.
