Kaduna Senator, Shehu Sani has reacted to the plan by Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State to start cultivating Marijuana.
The governor who is currently in Thailand with the NDLEA boss revealed that his state will be tapping into the legal marijuana market because the plant thrives well on its soil.
“We all know that Ondo State is the hot bed of cannabis cultivation in Nigeria. We know how to grow it and it thrives well in the Sunshine State. With an estimated value of $145 Billion in 2025, we would be shortchanging ourselves if we failed t tap into the Legal Marijuana Market“.
In reaction, Shehu Sani advised the governor to consider investing in Beans, Rice, Yam etc instead of marijuana.
“My Brother Akeredolu, Lagos partnered with Kebbi for Rice, please partner with Niger for Beans, Kaduna for Ginger or partner with Benue for Yam; Please leave this Indian Hemp matter for now, abeg.”
His opinion was however contradicted by AAC presidential candidate, Omoyele Sowore, who noted that the senator’s hair would benefit a lot from marijuana cultivation. In reaction, Shehu Sani tweeted:
“My Friend, Yele Sowore, my Hair doesn’t need that marijuana to glow,I wish you,Governor Akeredolu and Majek all the best;if you succeed,then you are right.When we meet we shall debate it”.
