Bishop David Oyedepo, the founder of popular Pentecostal church, Winners Chapel, has come to the rescue of its congregation and other road users who ply the Idi-Iroko expressway where the church headquarters is located, by approving the sum of ₦650 million for the rehabilitation of the road.

This is coming just a few days after we reported that he personally acquired a helicopter worth ₦2.5 billion. It was gathered that the church had taken up the responsibility to repair the road without waiting for government intervention, which will cost them $2 million (that's ₦650 million).

The roads undergoing repairs are the old toll gate that connects Lagos and Ogun states, the Idi-Iroko expressway from Ojuore to Iyana-Iyesi and Sango.

This kind gesture is a respite to travellers and worshippers who commute through that route every day. Not that it's the first time the church is executing a road project but sources told Naijauto the project is the biggest to date.

While making the announcement for the approval and release of the fund, Bishop David Oyedepo said that Canaanland, (their headquarter) has birthed many giants whose spiritual and physical needs have been met for over 20 years.

This is highly commendable! The church isn't only meeting the spiritual needs of people but also their infrastructural needs.
