Senator Shehu Sani, representing Kaduna Central has replied to Omoyele Sowore, the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) over his view on Marijuana market in Nigeria.
Oluwarotimi Odunayo Akeredolu, Governor of Ondo state, had urged the Federal Government to put resources into the medicinal cannabis industry as parts of measures to diversify the country’s economy. Gov. Akeredolu said Ondo State, is known for its fertile land for the cultivation of cannabis, that this will make judicious use of the Thailand’s program, which he said is centered around exploiting the possibility of medicinal cannabis.
But in reaction to this, Senator Shehu Sani opposed the motion in a tweet, asking Gov. Akeredolu to invest the state’s resources in something more meaningful than the “proposed Indian hemp farm”.
Omoyele Sowore in a response to Sen. Sani’s tweet, asked the Sen. Sani if he was aware that he could benefit from locally made hair products from the cannabis.
Sowore tweet reads,
“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 ?”
On the same note, responding to Sowore, Sen. Sani on his Twitter page wrote,
“My Friend @YeleSowore, 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.”
