Construction of US $50m church auditorium project in Nigeria nears completion. The church which is being funded by Senior Pastor and founder, Latter Rain Assembly, Tunde Bakare is located at First Bank bus stop on Oregun road.
The project dubbed ‘The Citadel’ sits on a one-acre piece of land and is Dome-shaped. It will feature a 3-level basement parking, retaining walls with ground floor and additional four suspended floors and galleries with a helipad.
The complex will also have lecture rooms, counseling hall for first timers, diesel tanks and dumps, electrical device, exit driveways, waste material treatment site, a senate chamber with an expansive workplace for Bakare as the church’s supervisor alongside a picturesque diner/posh restaurant, baptismal pool and a well-kitted beauty parlor, spa and functional gym.
The project has been designed to give give worshipers an ambiance for their vehicles to ramp down to the basement car parks and will sit designer for their convenience. Italian Civil Engineering Giant, Cappa & D’Alberto Plc is the project contractor of the development. Upon completion the church complex will host the Latter Rain Assembly’s international headquarters.
In 2016, Bakare hosted in Lagos a fundraising event for the completion of the ultra-modern worship complex with the likes of his friend and Governor of Kaduna state, Nasir El-Rufai and other dignitaries in attendance. He committed much of his privately-earned income into the completion of The Citadel.
The church’s present expansive assembly at Akilo Road in Ogba, Lagos, which is their only branch in Lagos, would remain there, though, Bakare’s Latter Rain Assembly does not believe in replication of church branches.
