ThE Redeemed Christian Church of God, Lagos Province 1, has said the three-in-one community projects embarked on by the church in its host community would help mitigate floods.
The Pastor of the church, Samuel Olaniyan, disclosed this in a statement on Thursday, adding that the integrated community projects, which got the nod of the community development association included proper house numbering and clearing of drains.
He said, “We are embarking on these three projects at the same time which I described as an integrated intervention in our community where the headquarters of the church is located to give back to our community and make our presence felt.
“We are giving light to our street, Adefowope Street, to be followed by other streets for security reasons. We are clearing the drains to rid the community of rodents, mosquitoes, and other health hazards and mitigate against flooding. We are also numbering our streets to enable strangers with good intentions quickly locate where they are going in consistent with modern practice.”
The Chairman of Ilupeju Central Community Development Association, Kole Abe, commended the church for the laudable projects and called on other religious bodies within Ilupeju to emulate the religious body.
