The cancellation of the N3b project followed the opposition to it by the local. The planned Muhammadu Buhari Film Village had regularly faced opposition, particularly from Muslim clerics in Kano State.

They resisted the project on the grounds that it was contrary to the tenet of Islam, and that it would increase social vices. Instead, they urged the federal government to use the fund budgeted for the project to revive dams for agricultural development.

Senior Special Assistant to the President on National Assembly Matters, Abdulrahman Kawu Sumaila while announcing the cancellation, said the FG had no choice but to respect the wishes of the people, regretting that the aborted state-of-the-art facilities for the Hausa language film industry, known as Kannywood would have created thousands of job opportunities and promote cultural activities.

The original location of the aborted project is Jos, Plateau State, where choice acres of land was already appropriated before it was moved to Kano State.
