Hours after Jigawa state government disclosed its intention to build 95 mosques in the state, some Nigerians on social media have vehemently opposed the move and slammed the government for such move.
Recall that the Jigawa state government has earlier announced that it will open a bidding process for the construction of 95 mosques across the state.
Some Nigerians deeply frustrated and aggrieved by the declaration of the Jigawa state government took to Twitter to express their minds and further disclosed that there are over 800,000 out of school children in Jigawa state, rather than build schools, the government is making plans to build mosques.
Some twitter users question the essence of the projects in line with empowerment and creation of employment. Some users opined that factories or schools should be built instead while others suggested that it wouldn’t be right even if it’s 95 new churches that are being built because that shouldn’t be our priority.
