Buhari Cancels Plan To Build Film Village As Muslim Clerics Kick Against It

The federal government has cancelled its plan to build a massive film village in Kano state.

According to BBC, the government shelved the plan as a result of social media outcry and opposition from Muslim clerics.

More than N3bn was reportedly budgeted for the project as part of the government’s efforts to improve the Hausa language film industry known as Kannywood.

The government argued the village would create thousands of job opportunities and promote cultural activities.
