‘My Hair Does Not Need Marijuana’, Shehu Sani Hit Back at Sowore
Shehu Sani, Senator representing Kaduna Central has reacted to Omoyele Sowore, the presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) over his statement on Marijuana market in Nigeria.
The argument began after the Kaduna Central lawmaker urged Rotimi Akeredolu, governor of Ondo, had described Ondo to give up his plans to cultivate cannabis for medicinal use in the state.
Akeredolu revealed that 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.
However, Shehu Sani pleaded with Akeredolu to leave the “Indian Hemp” matter and focus on cultivating ginger, beans, and yam — By partnering with states like Niger and Kaduna like Lagos state did in terms of rice.
“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.
Sani in his response said he doesn’t need cannabis for his Afro to glow — Adding that he wishes both he, Akeredolu and Majek Fashek well.
My Friend 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.
