The presiding Bishop of Elshaddai Bible Church and former Chairman of the Lagos chapter of the Pentecostal Fellowship of Nigeria, Bishop Olanrewaju Obembe has urged the Minister of Works, Power and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Raji Fashola to take on the challenge of ensuring that major roads in the country are not nightmares for motorists.
In a statement during the week, Obembe described the Fashola’s new assignment as a round peg in a round hole noting that his wealth of experience in Lagos state will be brought to bear in the sectors that he has been put charge.
He urged the former governor to do what “Napoleon could not do good” by constructing “five revolutionary commercial roads in Nigeria” before he leaves office.
The roads according to him include Lagos Badagry-Sokoto road, Ibeju-Lekki-Port Harcourt Coastal Road and Lagos-Ibadan Expressway. Also included in his list are Ilesha-Akure-Owo Dual Carriageway and Ilorin-Jebba-Mokwa Road.
While expressing confidence that Fashola will not disappoint Nigerians as minister in charge of roads, housing and power, he says in the statement, “We know you are a performer. God has given you sanctified intellect to solve problems of electricity in Nigeria and to also help with the housing sector. We shall continue to pray for you and trust that you will not let Nigeria down.”
