He said that Wamba was chosen for the project because of the abundant tourism potential of the area.

“This state film village and resort is going to be a place that will give our youths the opportunity to develop their talents and their potential so they will be reckon with and will go places.

“We have the potential in the state, all that is needed is for the youth to be given a push and this very film village and cultural resort will attend to that, it is also going to be an opening for job creation,” he said.

Shammah said that the building when completed will be a first of its kind in the sense that it will have international touch in terms of structure and design, which will be unique in the Northern Nigeria.
