In his words:
"My decision to have the project in a Mosque is to promote religious tolerance, unity, and Peaceful coexistence among people of different faith.
"If all of us in this country will respect each other’s faith, love one another unconditionally, we will have the Nigeria of our dream without killing or attacking one another.
"Our problem as a people is that we have little or no respect for our religion and belief, if we do, the next generation will have no reason whatsoever not to see each as brothers or sisters.
Upon seeing the project, the chairman of Zamfara State Radio and Television Services, Sa’idu Maishanu, got so excited.
