Governor Seyi Makinde today said his administration would demolish the popular Adogba Central Mosque, Iwo Road, Ibadan.
The decision, according to Makinde, who observed Jumah with his deputy, Engr. Raufu Olaniyan, is in order to expand the popular Iwo-Road interchange in Ibadan, the state capital.
Explaining that the project swould be completed between 9 and 11 months, Makinde said he was at the mosque to solicit support from the congregation over government’s decision to demolish the mosque.
He said the decision to demolish the mosque to pave way for the construction of an interchange was part of his administration’s plan to make Ibadan a befitting state capital, adding that a church around the interchange area would also be demolished.
He dismissed the insinuations that the demolition had religion undertone, saying four out of the first six persons in government hierarchy in the state are Muslims.
He said his administration was committed to the infrastructural development of the state, especially the state capital, so as to restore the old glory when Ibadan was the capital of the old Western Region.
Makinde said government had provided another land for the building of a befitting mosque for the congregation and promised to personally spearhead the construction of the new mosque.
He appealed to Muslim faithful to support the decision for the overall development of the state.
