In recent news, some misinformed Islamic extremists have issued threats against Nyesom Wike, the Minister of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), over rumours of a plan to demolish the Abuja National Mosque.

Among others, one Islamic scholar and social media influencer, @MFaarees_ tweeted: “Demolishing Abuja National Mosque? Someone should tell Wike this is not Rivers or any other southern state, Ubansa yayi kadan ba shi bah! It’s Tinubu’s fault for giving this religious bigot the FCT.”

The controversy surrounding the Abuja National Mosque began when rumours spread regarding the government’s plans to demolish the mosque. These rumours triggered a wave of concern among Islamic extremists, leading to threats against Minister Nyesom Wike. It is important to note that these threats are based on speculation and have not been confirmed by any official sources.

However, Minister Nyesom Wike has vehemently denied the allegations that his administration intends to demolish the Abuja National Mosque. In a recent meeting with the Board of the National Mosque, Wike clarified that the revocation order issued to religious organizations was not targeted at any particular group. He emphasized that the order was aimed at changing the landscape of the territory and discouraging criminal activities. Wike expressed his support for the maintenance of national monuments, including the National Mosque, and urged religious leaders to promote unity and peaceful coexistence.

Islamic leaders have expressed concern over the rumoured plan to demolish the Abuja National Mosque. The Chairman of the National Mosque, Alhaji Yahaya Abubakar, sought clarification from Minister Wike regarding the status of the mosque’s plot. Abubakar also appealed for support in completing the ongoing renovation of the mosque, which had been initiated by the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA) before the inauguration of President Tinubu’s administration.

Recall that recently, popular Islamic cleric, Sheikh Gumi had called the FCT Minister and former governor of Rivers State, Nyesom Wike, a satanic person. While rendering a sermon at a gathering, Gumi said Christians and their infidels cannot be trusted with Nigeria’s security. https://9newsng.com/wike-is-a-satanic-person-christians-cannot-be-trusted-with-nigerias-security-sheik-gumi/

It is crucial to highlight the prevalence of misinformation and political manipulation in this situation. Minister Wike has refuted claims that he ordered the demolition of any mosque during his tenure as the governor of Rivers State. These allegations, according to Wike, are politically motivated and spread by his opponents. It is important to approach such claims with caution and verify information from reliable sources.

National monuments, such as the Abuja National Mosque, hold great cultural and historical significance. They represent the rich heritage of a nation and serve as symbols of unity and diversity. The maintenance and preservation of these monuments are essential for preserving the nation’s identity and promoting social cohesion. It is vital for the government and religious organizations to work together to ensure the protection and upkeep of these national treasures.
