Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke has reassured the Muslim community in Ilesa that the ongoing road dualisation in the town will not affect the central mosque.

He added that his pledge not to demolish the central mosque during his interactive session with the people in the area remain sacrosanct.

In a statement issued by his spokesperson, Olawale Rasheed on Friday, he said the Ilesa Muslim community need not fear over the issue saying the mosque will not be affected.

“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 statement reads.

While commending stakeholders for actively supporting the ongoing dualisation at Ilesa, the statement added 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.
