Nigeria Should Not Legalize Marijuana – Shehu Sani

Senator Shehu SaniSenator Shehu Sani has revealed his stance against legalizing marijuana in Nigeria.

Senator Shehu Sani also warned Ondo State governor, Rotimi Akeredolu, against fighting for the legalisation of marijuana in the country.

Ajimobi recently said, “We all know that Ondo State is the hot bed of cannabis cultivation in Nigeria. We know how to grow it and it thrives well in the Sunshine State. With an estimated value of $145 Billion in 2025, we would be shortchanging ourselves if we failed to tap into the Legal Marijuana Market.

“Our focus now is Medical Marijuana cultivation in controlled plantations under the full supervision of the @ndlea_nigeria. I strongly implore the FG to take this seriously as it is a thriving industry that will create 1000’s of Jobs for our youth & spur Economic Diversification.”

But Shehu Sani disagrees, his words, “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.”
