Afro beat star, Seun Kuti , has reacted to Ondo State Governor, Rotimi Akeredolu’s endorsement of marijuana for commercial purpose in the state.
The governor, who is currently in Thailand to understudy the process, got a lot of Nigerians excited when he announced his plans for marijuana on social media yesterday.
Seun Kuti said, ‘’Ehn Mr excellency, sir, if you want me to move to your state, just say so. This beating about the bush is unnecessary.
‘’Afrobeat is about to switch home base y’all. Just imagine one good joint for my back ache then better Ondo pounded yam to heal my stomach pain.”
Rotimi Akeredolu has also expressed the need for the Federal Government to encourage the cultivation of medicinal cannabis, also known as hemp, in the country.
He made the request on his Twitter handle on Tuesday while commenting on his recent mission to Thailand. The governor said he was in Thailand in company with the Chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, Col. Muhammad Mustapha (retd), for a programme tagged, ‘Medicinal Cannabis Extract Development.’
“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.

Our focus now is medical marijuana cultivation in controlled plantations under the full supervision of the NDLEA,” Akeredolu said.
