GENERAL Overseer of The Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG, Pastor Enoch Adeboye has urged the Lagos State government to construct more low cost housing estates to house the ever growing population of migrants to the commercial nerve centre, Lagos State from different parts of the country.
The call was made yesterday through the Assistant Pastor In-Charge of RCCG, Headquarters Church, Pastor Goke Aniyeloye at a press conference to herald a special prayer session by Pastor Adeboye for tenants living in Lagos and its environs.
The General Overseer, who said he had once experienced housing problem but was delivered by God, noted that Nigerians, especially Lagosians will enjoy cheaper accommodation if government, churches and well other meaning Nigerians can build low cost estates for the state’s team-ing population.
According to Pastor Adeboye, accommodation has become one of the major challenges confronting Nigerians, point-ing out that his church has been in the vanguard of build-ing estates and selling them out at affordable prices to people.
In his words: “If government can sincerely build more estates that are affordable and cheaper than private ones people will go for it and abandon the costly ones.
“For instance if the Nigerian people can get a 3-bedroom flat for N300,000 and landlords realize that people are abandoning their houses they will be forced to bring down their house rents.
“Nobody will go for expensive houses,” he stated, adding “the Lord who gave me a city instead of a flat will likewise do the same for talents who will be attending the special program-me and they will eventually become landlords. All we need is to come to the Lord Who is the builder.”
The special inter-denomina-tional programme which is scheduled for Sunday, November 6, 2011, according to the man of God will host almost 50,000 tenants.
The special prayer service is expected to offer divine solution for talents who are yearning to become landlords.
