Gov Ganduje vows to sue Wike’s govt over alleged mosque demolition


The Kano State Government led by Abdullahi Ganduje has vowed to take legal action against the Government of Nyesom Wike in Rivers State for the alleged demolition of the Rainbow Town Central Mosque in Trans-Amadi Area, Port Harcourt.

The Chief Press Secretary to Ganduje, Abba Anwar, in a statement described the incident as a sad story and promised to take all necessary lawful action against the Rivers State Government.

The threat comes barely 24 hours after a former Governor of Kano State, Ibrahim Shekerau, lambasted Wike for the demolition of the mosque, describing it as unacceptable.

Kano State is one of the 12 states in northern Nigeria practising Sharia Law.

In the statement on Saturday, Ganduje said the mosque demolition in Rivers as “shocking and promised that necessary lawful action must be taken over the happening. ”

The reported demolition was said to have caused a major controversy because Wike had claimed two months ago at a crusade organised by a church in Port Harcourt that Rivers State was a Christian state.

“I repeat once again without apologies, Rivers is a Christian state. That is why nobody can touch us. When it mattered most, the Christian community prayed and God heard your prayers”, Wike had said.(Punch)
