Shehu Sani’s hair will benefit from Akeredolu’s marijuana — Sowore
Omoyele Sowore, the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) in the last election, has mocked Shehu Sani, Senator representing Kaduna Central over his statement on Marijuana market in Nigeria.
Governor Akeredolu who is currently in Thailand alongside the Chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, Rtd. Col. Muhammad Mustapha Abdallah for Medicinal Canabis Extract Development Program had urged the Federal Government to beam focus into the medicinal cannabis industry as parts of measures to diversify the country’s economy.
According to Akeredolu, the multi-billion dollar industry if harnessed will help to create thousands of jobs for youths.
But in reaction, Sani pleaded with Akeredolu to invest the state’s resources in something more meaningful than the proposed Indian hemp farm.
However, Sowore in a response to Sani’s tweet; criticized the Kaduna senator for “downplaying” the call for a marijuana market in Nigeria.
He asked the Sani if he was aware that he could benefit from hair products locally made from the cannabis.
“I hate to stand between two Nigerian politicians engaging asinine argument but I am disappointed in you for this tweet.
“Have you ever thought of it that when this idea finally gains legal ground your Afro hair could benefit from a locally produced line of cannabis hair products?” Sowore tweeted.
