GENERAL Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adejare Adeboye, who will from today play host to millions of worshippers for this year’s Holy Ghost Congress, yesterday assured participants and other motorists on the busy Lagos-Ibadan Expressway of smooth, free-flow of traffic throughout the week long spiritual event scheduled for the church’s Redemption Camp.
Julius Berger, the construction company handling the rehabilitation of the expressway, has failed to deliver on its promise to complete work by November and ease the traffic gridlock on the road. Speaking in an interview yesterday, a coordinator of RCCG’s volunteer force, Team Nehemiah, Pastor Adeniji Adejumo, who spoke on behalf of the General Overseer, assured motorists that the construction firm had created a corridor for participants at the Holy Ghost Congress, which would lessen the pressure on the expressway.
Pastor Adeboye “We thank God for the cooporation of Julius Berger and the pace at which they are working now. One, it graciously opened a bye pass on the long bridge so that even if there is traffic, motorists can still do a detour by OPIC and take that bye road to come out at Wawa and continue their journey to the Redemption Camp.
That is good news for us, in addition to all the good job the Lagos State government is doing at Berger Bus Stop, via Oworonsoki, Alapere and all those adjoining areas. “That place has also reduced the bottleneck that we used to have at those points. We are still having series of meetings with all the stakeholders that will ensure smooth motoring on the busy road especially for road users coming from Ibadan and other parts of the country to the camp. We are also creating openings for them to make u-turns and proceed to the camp without much pain,” he emphasised.
