Oba Akiolu

Synonymous with controversial statements, Oba Rilwan Akiolu has made another comment which the Lagos People’s Democratic Party (PDP), will not like.

Speaking during the commissioning of the recently completed Assembly Mosque, he was quoted saying that “God will not allow any other party apart from All Progressives Congress (APC) to take over the State in the forthcoming general election in 2019. ”

 

He made this remark yesterday in Lagos at the 11th Annual Hijrah Lecture and Commissioning of the new House of Assembly Mosque. He said the new Mosque was unique especially as it was built inside the Assembly complex where Bills are passed into law.

 

Oba Akiolu also argued that it was not enough to build Mosque but that the custodians of the Mosque should be properly taken care of. He also advised the custodians not to be involved in anything that would tarnish image of the religion.

 

Governor Ambode was represented by the Commissioner for Home Affairs, AbdulHakeem Abdulateef who is the Chief Imam of the House of Assembly Mosque. In his speech, the Chairman of the Muslim Community of the Assembly, Mr. Sikiru Osinowo thanked God Almighty for the completion of the mosque.

“We started the mosque project so that we could fulfil the purpose of our coming here. We have been Muslim Speakers, and God made it possible for us to build the new mosque during the time of the current Speaker, Rt. Hon. Mudashiru Obasa,” he said.
