Common Kano film village o! That’s what is bringing all this casting and binding o! Kai, the thing religion will do us in this country ehn?? Jehovah, Allah, Sango and Amadioha altogether no go fit solve am.
A hate-filled, tribalistic, extremist preacher by the name of Sheikh Abdallah Usman Gadan Kanya spontaneously started his periods when he heard of plans to build a film village in Kofa, Kano State.
Well, the plans have been scrapped. Buhari has directed that it be terminated to appease the hard lined clerics like this one and many others, but really! Must everything degenerate into a Hausa-Yoruba-Igbo kerfuffle?!
Kayode Ogundamisi, a renowned commentator on Nigerian and international affairs, and a friend of chez Viva Naija, covered the unnecessary and hate-filled rant.
“We have details of a plot in our state of Kano. There is a plan to establish a film village in Kofa, Bebeji local government area of Kano State. There is going to be massive preachings against it and lectures by Islamic clerics considering the danger coming with this. So the first benefit Muslims in Kano and Nigeria will get is the establishment of a national or international film village? In which from all parts of the world, people will be coming to Kofa to do film or drama. A southerner will come and do film in Kofa; a northerner will come and do film in Kofa. American will come and do film in Kofa, Indian will come and do a film in Kofa and Britons will come and do the same thing in Kofa. To come and practice immorality and destroy our values.
They have earmarked billions of naira for the project that will stretch over an eight-kilometer complex…We are calling on all our writers to start writing against it. Southerners want the film village in their place, but they refused to take it there because they know there are Muslims in Kano, and they want to destroy our religion and values.
Some Yoruba who are pagans want it, but they refused and insisted that it is in Kano State that they will establish it. We heard that it is one lawmaker that is bringing this calamity to us from Federal Government. Another mischief is that they have put the picture of the President and calling the place Muhammadu Buhari Film Village because they know people love Buhari and are supporting him. But Buhari is not Allah, and he is not [the] Prophet. Even if it is Buhari that did wrong we will confront him squarely. Even if it is Buhari that brings this we will fight it; it is wrong.
Tell them, write it and propagate it through all the means. We don’t want it; we don’t need it. They should take it somewhere. We will continue to curse people behind this film village. You should campaign against it in WhatsApp, Facebook. If they insist, we have hot spiritual prayers that will bring curse and affliction to anyone. Very hot prayers that will cause blindness and make those involved deaf completely.”
I’m tired of my people. It’s just like…to die and to kill dey hungry soooo many people!
