Gov. Adeleke Reacts To Alleged Plan To Demolish Ilesa Central Mosque


The Osun State Governor, Senator Ademola Adeleke has responded to the appeal of Ijesa Muslim Community on the ongoing Ilesa road dualisation, reassuring Muslim faithful that there is no plan to demolish Ilesa Central Mosque.

In a statement issued by the Governor’s Spokesperson, Mallam Olawale Rasheed, on Friday, affirmed that the assurance given during the ‘Ipade Imole’ remains.

“Governor Adeleke has received the plea of the Ijesa Muslim leaders and has directed that fresh assurance be given that the mosque is not billed for demolition in the ongoing road dualisation.

“The muslim ummah should not entertain any fear as the mosque remains intact. Only the extended canopies will be affected, not the main building as earlier indicated.

“The Governor has also directed officials of the Ministry of Works and Infrastructure to interface with the Muslim leaders on the subject matter”, the Spokesperson noted.

While commending stakeholders for actively supporting the ongoing dualisation at Ilesa, the Spokesperson explained that Mr Governor is committed to the implementation of the multi-billion naira Infrastructure upgrade with an eye on deep local content and active community engagement and collaboration.
