RCCG LP 1 CSR project

The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Lagos Province 1, has embarked on a three-in-one community project to host community through what it called Christian Social Responsibility (CSR) with the aim of augmenting government efforts.

The church also aims to spread other projects to adjoining streets within its domain based on evaluated needs within such identified streets in Ilupeju, Lagos.

The Pastor-in-charge of RCCG Lagos Province 1, Pastor Samuel Bode Olaniyan, made this public during the exercise in Lagos recently. The CSR exercise attracted many members and leaders of the church.

The integrated community projects, which got the nod of the community development association, include: proper house numbering for easy identification by visitors, installation of street lights and clearing of drainages.

Olaniyan, who called on individuals and spirited bodies to key into such projects said, “We are embarking on these three projects at the same time which I describe as 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, other health hazards and mitigate against flooding. We are also numbering our streets to enable strangers with good intentions to quickly locate where they are going, in alignment with modern practice.”

Chairman, Ilupeju Central Community Development Association, Kole Abe, commended the church for the laudable projects. He called on other religious bodies within Ilupeju to emulate the RCCG Love Assembly.

Assistant Pastor-in-charge Christian Social Responsibility, RCCG Lagos Province 1, Pastor Oluwasegun Olatona, noted that the projects gulped more than a million naira. He added that the church also partnered with the Psychiatric Hospital, Yaba, Lagos, to educate youths on drug-related issues.

According to Olatona, more programmes are on the pipeline for parents and surrounding communities in order to move the society in the right direction.
