The presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC), Omoyele Sowore, has mocked Shehu Sani, Senator representing Kaduna Central for “downplaying” calls for a marijuana market in Nigeria.
Recall that Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State had urged the Federal Government to direct its focus into the medicinal cannabis industry as part of measures to diversify the country’s economy.
But while reacting to Akeredolu’s call, Sen Sani in a Twitter post, pleaded with the Ondo State governor to invest the state’s resources in something more meaningful than the proposed Indian hemp farm.
The AAC presidential candidate fired back at Senator Sani’s response for “downplaying” the call for a marijuana market in Nigeria and also asked if he (Sani) is aware that he could benefit from hair products locally made from marijuana.
“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.
Senator Sani also fired back at Sowore’s tweet when he posted thus on his verified account; “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.”
