Following the federal government cancellation of its proposed film village in Kano which was estimated to gulp nothing less than N3b due to strong public outrage it generated among mostly muslims clerics both off and online, one Abubakar Umar Jikan Ya’u urged the FG to relocate the said project to Katsina.

Abubakar who bear the name as above took to his facebook account wall and posted an online petition urging people of Katsina who shares his view to sign up the petition online demanding for the Project to be relocated to Katsina.

According to him: “We believe the withdrawn N3 Billion project for the construction of a modern film Institute (films village) from Kano state will to some extent reduce the level of unemployment in our society. Youths unemployment is a deadly disease that open doors to so many criminals activities in our society e.g drug abuse, stealing, thuggery (Sara-suka) and so many others too numerous to mention.”

He then added: “We therefore call for the establishment of the institute in Katsina State to salvage our society from further degradation caused by unemployment. We will equally initiate and call for the establishment of a strong body to regulate the activities of people involved in the business to bring sanity in the system.”

KATSINA POST visited the petition page and noticed that already people have started signing up to his call.

KATSINA POST also noticed that the ‘petitioner’ is requiring atleast 1,000 people to sign up the petition.

 

The Petition can be found at:

Will he find enough people to sign his petition?

Will Katsinawa heed to his call at all?

It is only time call answer these questions and many more.

 

Bellow is what he posted on his wall:

 

“Kindly follow the link and sign if you’re in support of the call for the transfer of the N3 Billion film facility to Katsina.

We believe the withdrawn N3 Billion project for the construction of a modern film Institute (films village) from Kano state will to some extent reduce the level of unemployment in our society. Youths unemployment is a deadly disease that open doors to so many criminals activities in our society e.g drug abuse, stealing, thuggery (Sara-suka) and so many others too numerous to mention. It’s better to engage the Youths in things like cinematography, photography, animation, editing and as well acting than to engage in the aforementioned activities which are now very prevalent in our society. We therefore call for the establishment of the institute in Katsina State to salvage our society from further degradation caused by unemployment. We will equally initiate and call for the establishment of a strong body to regulate the activities of people involved in the business to bring sanity in the system.

Meanwhile, another benefit we perceived is the ability of the facility to increase the level of revenue the Katsina State government will be generating in this time of economic crises that states have to borrow money to pay salaries and fund projects.”
