Seun, the son of Nigerian Afrobeat legend, Fela Anikulapo-Kuti has reacted to a statement by the Ondo State governor, Rotimi Akeredolu on the economic value of Marijuana in the State.
Akeredolu urged the Federal Government to beam searchlight on the medicinal cannabis industry as part 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, Rtd. Col. Muhammad Mustapha Abdallah for Medicinal Cannabis Extract Development Program stated that the multi-billion dollar industry if harnessed, will help to create thousands of jobs for youths.
According to Akeredolu, Ondo State which is known for her fertile land for the cultivation of cannabis will make judicious use of Thailand’s program, which he said is centred around exploiting the possibility of medicinal cannabis.
Reacting, Kuti making reference to Akeredolu’s statement said ‘afrobeat is about to switch homebase’
Alongside the post made by Akeredolu, Kuti on his Instagram page wrote: “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 you all. Just imagine one good joint for my back ache then better Ondo pounded yam to heal my stomach pain.”
