Indian hemp: ‘Your hair could benefit from it’ – Sowore reacts to Shehu Sani’s advice to Gov. Akeredolu

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.

DAILY POST recalls that Akeredolu had urged the Federal Government to beam focus into the medicinal cannabis industry as parts of measures to diversify the country’s economy.

The Governor, 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 stated that the multi-billion dollar industry if harnessed will help to create thousands of jobs for youths.

Akeredolu said Ondo State, which is known for its fertile land for the cultivation of cannabis will make judicious use of the Thailand’s program, which he said is centred around exploiting the possibility of medicinal cannabis.

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.
