The Redeemed Christian Church of God, Lagos Province 23, Prince of Peace Area 25 has raised its corporate social responsibility initiative in Lagos with its donation of a brand new block of offices, new concrete cell with detainees private toilet, a borehole and repainting the Langbasa Police Station Badore, Ajah, in Eti-Osa Local Government, Lagos.
The renovation of the 57-year-old Police Station, which gulped over N2.5 million, is a follow up to the church’s February 2015 donation of N2.2 million storm-water drainage system in the area as a response to the outcry of the community, which had long suffered uncontrolled flooding with associated health and environmental consequences.
Describing the project as another landmark CSR project of the church, the General Overseer, Pastor Enoch Adeboye said the church would continue to use its CSR as a tool of helping mankind. Adeboye, represented by his Special Assistant (Missions), Pastor Brown Oyitso, listed the CSR objectives of the church to include promoting good corporate governance in the neighborhood of the local church, complementing government efforts towards employment generation, evangelism, enhancing church growth especially among the youth, promoting RCCG community relationship and development.
The Pastor-In-Charge of Prince of Peace Area 25, Lagos Province 23, Folusho Koku, said the church’s latest efforts entailed the remodeling and reconstruction of the Langbasa Police office project that was initially designed for an office and car park to a modern block of three offices with conveniences in each office. Expressing appreciation for the exemplary gesture, the Area Commander, Area ‘J’ Elemoro, ACP Kayode Samuel who represented the Commissioner of Police and Divisional Police Officer, Langbasa Division, CSP Joy Agulanna said the church’s gesture exemplified the Commissioner of Police’s insistence on very good community policing which is germane to democratic policing strategy.
