‘Tinubu not anti-Christian or anti-Muslim’ – Wike on renovation of National Mosque, Christian Centre


The Minister of the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Nyesom Wike, has assured that President Bola Tinubu is not anti-Christian or Muslim.


Wike said Tinubu considers all religion as one because Nigeria is one.


He disclosed this while promising to ensure timely completion of the renovation of the National Mosque and the National Christian Centre, Abuja.


Wike gave the assurance after he inspected the ongoing renovation of the two national monuments in Abuja on Thursday.


Wike also promised to visit the two centres to see things for himself before deciding on the next line of action.


The minister told journalists shortly after the inspection tour that the renovation at the National Mosque stopped due to additional work that ought to be done.


He expressed satisfaction with what was done so far and gave the approval for funds to be released to the contractor to enable him to complete the additional work.


On the National Christian Centre, Wike said he would look at the cost of the phase two renovation project and approve it if it is within what the FCTA can fund.


He said that if the cost exceeds FCTA approval threshold, he would approach the President for approval, assuring that Tinubu would not abandon such important national monuments.


“He is not anti any religion; he takes all religion as one, because we are one Nigeria,” he said.
