Tension as Christian PDP Governor Rebuilt Mosque, Renamed It After Himself, Muslims Kick



The decision of the Oyo state government to rename the newly rebuilt popular central Mosque in the Iwo Road area of Ibadan after Governor Seyi Makinde has met stiff criticism from the Muslim Rights Concern (MURIC).

According to Premium Times, the Islamic group is demanding that the old name of the mosque should be immediately reversed.

Ishaq Akintola, the MURIC executive director, made this known in a statement on Saturday, March 11.

In October 2019, Seyi Makinde said that the mosque would be demolished because of the construction of a bus terminal.

According to the governor, the project was expected to be completed between 9 and 11 months.

Governor Makinde added that a church around the terminal area would also be affected.
