By Faith Awa Maji
The President, Eggon Youth Movement (EYM), Chief Isaac Ali Kigbu, has explained his decision to build a multi-million naira mosque in his village, Akaleku, Obi Local Government Area of Nasarawa State.
“I named the mosque after the man who brought me to limelight,” Kigbu told FMBlog in an interview, adding that, “he is from Biu, Borno State, and a serving member of the House of Representatives.
“God made it possible for our paths to cross he blessed me despite our religious and ethnic differences.
“My philosophy has always been to give to society what is right, service to humanity and to do all I can to unite the two major religions in the country,” Kigbu said.

The Emir of Lafia, Justice Sidi Bage, accompanied by the Aren Eggon Erroh, Sangari Kwandere, and some other traditional leaders including the Osana of Keana, commissioned the Rt. Hon. Muktar Aliyu Betera Central Mosque, Akaleku, last Friday.

Speaking at the ceremony, the Emir said he was proud of Chief Isaac Ali Kigbu, noting that, “apart from pursuing Islamic education, the people of the State must embrace education because the world is changing and Nasarawa State and Akaleku must not be left behind.”
He said the mosque would remain historic in the hearts of Akaleku and Nasarawa State people.

The mosque is equipped with modern facilities along with a motorised borehole and two mega water reservoirs.
