The Tadhamunul Muslimeen Mosque also known as Adogba Mosque, Iwo Road, Ibadan, which was rebuilt by the Oyo State governor, ‘Seyi Makinde, will be commissioned on Thursday.
Governor Makinde is expected to host the Sultan of Sokoto and President-General of the Nigerian Supreme Council of Islamic Affairs, Alhaji Muhammad Sa’ad Abubakar, who will chair the epoch-making event.
Also expected at the event are the Emir of Kano, Alhaji Aminu Ado Bayero; governor of Bauchi State, Senator Bala Mohammed and his Kwara State counterpart, Alhaji AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq.
Governor Makinde had, on October 19, 2019, promised to build a new Adogba Central Mosque, as the former structure had to give way to the development of the Iwo Road Interchange.
Governor Makinde had explained that if his administration’s plan to uplift Ibadan, the state capital, would materialise, the former structure would have to give way, adding that he would construct another worship centre from his personal resources.
The governor delivered on the promise with the construction of the new mosque, an Arabic School, an Islamic Model School, a research centre, a library and an event hall all of which will be inaugurated on Thursday.
