By Deborah Oladejo, Osogbo

Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke has allayed fears of Ijesa Muslim Community on the ongoing Ilesa road dualisation, reassuring them that there is no plan to demolish Ilesa Central Mosque.

The Governor spoke through his Spokesperson, Mallam Olawale Rasheed, noting that the assurance given during the ‘Ipade Imole’ still remains.

The statement reads : “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.”

While commending stakeholders for actively supporting the ongoing dualisation at Ilesa, the Governor said his administration 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.
