It is one problem too big for Rivers State Governor Nyesom Wike, as controversy trailing his demolition of Trans Amadi Central Mosque in the state takes more messy dimensions.
This is as Governor of Kano State, Dr. Umar Abdullahi Ganduje, sitting Senator Ibrahim Shekarahu, Niger Delta youth leader, Alhaji Mujahid Asari Dokubo, and many more Nigerians have added their voices to the condemnation of Governor Wike, who only recently made public declaration on Riversas Christian State.
They said his demolition of the major Muslim Jumah mosque in Port Harcourt the state capital is part of the process of stamping out Muslims out of the federating unit thereby paving the way for its new status as Christian state in the multi-religious society of Nigeria.
Kano State Government vowed to institute a legal action against the Rivers State governor, Mr Nyesom Wike, over the demolition of the Rainbow Town Central Mosque located at the Trans-Amadi Area of Port Harcourt.
A press statement by Abba Anwar, Chief Press Secretary to Ganduje described the “sad story of Mosque demolition in Rivers state as shocking and promised that necessary lawful action must be taken over the happening. ”

Mr Dokubo said the governor actually demolished the mosque.
Mr Wike came under fire recently for ordering the demolition of the multi million naira Trans-Amadi Central Mosque in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital.
The governor immediately denied the allegations, saying that the story was not true as there was no mosque built on the site.
But Mr Dokubo, who described the governor’s action as dastardly in a video circulating on social media, said the governor was lying as there was existing mosque at Trans-Amadi, which Mr Wike demolished.
“I am a member of the congregation of the Trans Amadi Central Mosque. That is where I pray with my family,” he said I a video The DEFENDER stumbled over.
