The Living Faith Church, otherwise known as Winners’ Chapel, said it had completed the rehabilitation of the 23-kilometre Atan-Lusada-Agbara highway in the Ado-Odo Ota Local Government Area of Ogun State.

The church, in a statement on Tuesday by the Chairman of its Media and Editorial Board, Dr. Sheriff Folarin, said the road had, for years, been giving motorists a traumatic experience.

Folarin however said the rehabilitation would bring relief to the users as well as residents, noting that the gesture was part of the church commitment to assisting the government in providing succour for Nigerians in the face of mounting social challenges in the country.

The statement quoted the founder of the church, Bishop David Oyedepo, as decrying “the high rate of failing roads in the country,” pledging continuous support for the government.

He also charged organisations and groups in the country “to consider the peoples’ plight and to, in the spirit of corporate social responsibility, render meaningful assistance to the government in fixing roads and other collapsed social amenities.”

The church said it decided to embark on a total and permanent rehabilitation of the Atan-Lusada-Agbara road after it had on several occasions fixed certain worst spots, while waiting for the government to provide a permanent solution.

The statement read in part, “Aside from the Atan-Lusada-Agbara road, major rehabilitation is also being done from Anglican Bus Stop to Idi Pako linking to AIT, which is a 2-kiolmetre-long road; the abandoned, descending portion to Toll Gate of the newly-constructed Local Council-Toll Gate Expressway; Coca-Cola-Ilobu road, off Oju Ore; the totally collapsed Joju-Alisiba road (off Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway); and the Sifor-Estate road; the portion from Sango roundabout to Joju roundabout (right to the edge of the Sango-Idiroko expressway), which had not been motorable for close to a year, will be paved with interlocks to absorb shocks and the damaging effects of heavy duty vehicles and not fail anymore.”
