Why Governor Akeredolu of Ondo is Working “to tap into the legal marijuana market”


Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo wants the state to tap into the legal marijuana market, and he’s working with the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) to achieve that.

Akeredolu and NDLEA Chairman
Col. Muhammad Mustapha Abdallah (Rtd) were in Thailand to learn how to legally grow cannabis.

Speaking on the development on Twitter, Akeredolu 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.

I strongly implore the FG to take this seriously as it is a thriving industry that will create 1000s of Jobs for our youth & spur Economic Diversification.
