Senator Shehu Sani representing Kaduna Central at the National Assembly has pleaded with Governor of Ondo State, Rotimi Akeredolu to invest the State’s resources in something more meaningful than the proposed Indian hemp farm.
Akeredolu had urged the Federal Government focus on 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, Muhammad 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.
Reacting to the development, Sani advised the Governor to partner with States in beans, rice, ginger and yam farming instead of Indian hemp.
“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.
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”.
