OYOGist.com has learned that the SDP gubernatorial flagbearer in the November 16th Election in Kogi, Barr Natasha Hadiza Akpoti has this evening show off products made from Indian Hemp in China.
Natasha via her Facebook account said, I Stopped by NEXT Cash & Carry, Abuja this afternoon and stumbled upon these useful organic products made from Indian hemp. Can someone please help me with the definition of hypocrisy? She asked.
Now, if our government is against the growth of Indian Hemp for medical / industrial use, how come it allows importation & consumption of its products? She continued.
I wrote a detailed piece on this topic last year and will not repeat myself.However, while Uganda regulates licensed hemp growers and signed an export deal to 20,000 pharmacies in Germany and Canada worth $160m (62 billion naira) ; Nigeria hypocritically sings it’s old diversification song. She concluded.
Natasha believes, the best thing is for the Federal Government of Nigeria to try and encourage the Cultivation of Indian Hemp in Nigeria.
