The Akwa Ibom State Government has been dragged to court by “witches and wizards” for building a Christian worship centre in the state.
The state governor, Udom Emmanuel, disclosed this on Saturday, February 12, during a live broadcast.
It was reports that the multi-billion naira worship centre which is ongoing in Uyo has been criticised by many who felt it would have been better to use the money to tackle the many development needs of the oil-rich state.
But Mr Emmanuel has always argued that it was necessary for Akwa Ibom, “as a state named after God, to build a temple for God.”
“All (the) witches and wizards came together and took me to court that we are building a Christian Worship Center. They say they are atheists. The case is in the court, we won them but they have appealed,” the governor added.
