Lagos-ibadan Expressway: Rccg & Mfm: Whats The Solution?

I am a good christian and God has been good to me in so many ways and I feel his presence daily.

Nevertheless, I must say the truth. Whats to be done about the traffic caused by RCCG and MFM on the expressway when they have programmes.

I had my wedding in Ibadan on the 8th and 9th of August and unluckily for us, it was RCCG's convention and MFM had a program

Your guess is as good as mine as to what happened that day, half of our guests were stuck in traffic for hours and got to Ibadan after the whole ceremony, some did not even make it at all. It was a miracle the grooms family members were not stuck in traffic.

I feel its very bad to disturb other citizens movement and travelling, (especially non-christians) with religious activities. You cant plan again, you have to consider them. Its so bad because we actually considered them while picking dates, by not choosing 1st weekend but they chose that our weekend for their convention.

I looked out if the government will say anthing about that day, but up to date nothing has been said.

What can we citizens do to eradicate this?? or whats the solution to these??

i think first there should be a public/pivate funding patnership between the churches and the state government concerned,also they can get ppl to leave their cars and arrange for buses to ferry them to and from the expressway and drop them at a communal car park,im a member of the redeemed churc but if we r to look at the way the western world would handle such problem i think the church has to ake responsibility

That doesnt reduce traffic.

A new alternative route on or off the expressway is the best.

an easy way most developed countries deal with congestion is to charge a toll. the churches need to invest more in public transport and car pools. less cars on the road.

they need not charge those already poo pips, if churches declare turnovers of tens of millions, the govt can simply sign a JVG to build those bridges

Its simple

Put a toll gate there and start charging the church members.

When the money is big enough, they should build a massive over-pass across the church.

Or the government should make them hold their programs at night when reasonable Nigerians are asleep

Thanx dear

At least that makes me feel better

We await the materalisation of the plans, I suggest an overhead bridge though, RCCG can afford it.
