The Ogun State Government has said the Redeemed Christian Church of God is not responsible for the palliative work being done on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway.

It was reported by some online sources, some workers employed by the church were seen filling some potholes on the road.
However, the state government in a statement on Thursday by the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Media, Adejuwon Soyinka, stated that the state Ministry of Works and Infrastructure was already spending millions of naira in putting the road in a good condition for motorists.
He said, “The ongoing palliative work on the Lagos-Ibadan expressway is being handled by the Ogun State Ministry of Works and Infrastructure.
“Concerned about the plight of commuters on the ever busy Lagos-Ibadan expressway, the Ogun State Government, on Tuesday, embarked on palliative work on some bad portions of the expressway.
“Not minding the fact that it is a federal road, Governor Ibikunle Amosun, who was worried about the plight of commuters that spend hours in traffic gridlock on the road, directed the state Ministry of Works and Infrastructure to immediately fix the bad portions of the road and also construct drainages.
“In giving the directive, the governor was particularly concerned about the need to immediately bring relief to the road users especially as the Redeemed Christian Church of God and other churches on the ever busy road are also billed to hold events that will attract millions of worshippers this weekend.”
Soyinka quoted the state governor as saying that the efforts made at rehabilitating the road were to complement the work of the Federal Government.
Amosun was quoted to have said the state would not neglect federal highways in the state since all roads were being plied by Nigerians.
He said, “The intervention job on the ever busy expressway is an initiative of the Ogun State government to rescue millions of Nigerians who spend hours in the gridlock occasioned by some bad portions of the road.
“It is also on record that the Ogun State Government had carried out similar palliative measures on the Lagos-Abeokuta Expressway, Sagamu-Ogijo-Ikorodu road and other federal roads within the state because the state is strategically located in such a way that goods and passengers going to all other parts of the country have to pass through the Gateway state,” the statement added.

According to the report, it was gathered that the woman had not menstruated for the past three years since she became pregnant. She delivered the cat which reportedly died minutes after it came out from the woman’s womb. An Ughelli based Journalist, Ode Williams who claimed to be a member of the church said, ”It’s not fake. I was there live and I witnessed it.” When Daily Post contacted the General Overseer of God in Action Liberation Ministry, a.k.a, Shallom Embassy, Prince Ovie Emmanuel to speak on the miracle which has left many in doubt, he confirmed the report saying,”It happened yesterday at about 8pm during a programme” The General Overseer who spoke through a cleric of the church, Pastor Great Otejiri said, ”It is a spiritual thing that cannot be explained. It’s a supernatural occurence by the kingdom of darkness and the Kingdom of light took it out of the woman.” The cleric who could not give the full names of the woman in question, however, invited our correspondent to attend the ongoing programme to get more details of the development so as to quench the doubts from the public. GISTMANIA, however, managed to obtain the photograph of the woman and the cat at the time she delivered inside the church.
