-Phone Rings-

CBN DEPUTY GOV. EDWARD ADAMU: Hello sir.

CBN GOV. EMEFIELE: Edward can you please step aside? 

CBN DEPUTY GOV. EDWARD ADAMU: Okay sir…  – Not clear –

CBN GOV. EMEFIELE: I am not too happy that Arowosegbe led us like this.

CBN DEPUTY GOV. EDWARD: In fact, that was what I was asking, I said we have an  impression that we had 500 billion, he said no. I said but that was the  impression until the end of the year.

CBN GOV. EMEFIELE: Ahhh! What are we going to do?

CBN DEPUTY GOV. EDWARD: You know… that’s what I told him.

CBN GOV. EMEFIELE: along we all thought he had that but it was very  shocking to hear that apparently, it was not 500 …you know.

CBN DEPUTY GOV. EDWARD: That’s the major issue.

CBN GOV. EMEFIELE: Ahh! …Ye! I don die now where I go see money.

CBN DEPUTY GOV. EDWARD: What I told them is, let’s look at our income if there is anything  we can do around that area, you know, that might be an option.  

CBN DEPUTY GOV. EDWARD: Because, now, we are in a very  bad situation. He really didn’t give us full information.

CBN GOV. EMEFIELE: I was like, God, he did a good job,  he didn’t pass time he left. How do I handle this?

CBN GOV. EMEFIELE: We have to rack our brain and get something  out because we can’t afford it at all, not at this time.

CBN GOV. EMEFIELE: Opposition will say it should have depreciated  in the project.

CBN GOV. EMEFIELE: Opposition will say it should have depreciated  in the project.

CBN GOV. EMEFIELE: …and then foreign investor would not begin to  panic and take their money out because they would say it would depreciate. 

CBN GOV. EMEFIELE: Ahhh! ooo!

EDWARD: Exactly, yes. There would be panic in the market and  we can’t take this at this stage, at all. We have to get a way out.  We are just discussing now in what are the possibilities,  what you can do. We will get back to you. 

CBN GOV. EMEFIELE: Hmmn!

CBN GOV. EMEFIELE: I’m just getting hopeless about it because I‘m  still thinking which way I should go.

CBN DEPUTY GOV. EDWARD: Yes, that is really the task now. 

CBN GOV. EMEFIELE: If there is a place you can find money. Ahhh! 

CBN DEPUTY GOV. EDWARD: We’ll have to think of a way out because we cannot afford it  at all. The implications are just too many to even think about  and damaging. We cannot allow this like this, we cannot. 

CBN GOV. EMEFIELE: To avoid any serious problem is just, the government to have to  agree to give us at least 100 billion cash but government  will not agree. They will kick against it. 

CBN DEPUTY GOV. EDWARD: Yes, they will kick against it. Really. That would have been a good one but the challenge is how to  get back to them but it will be very difficult, almost impossible. 

– Breathes heavily –

CBN GOVERNOR: The implication for the economy is… no no,no.  I’m just thinking if there is surplus of one naira, just give us  then we’ll begin to refund you in 2019. I can’t even find the  partners now because I cannot talk to the real partners like Ayo.
Ayo is not picking my call and I’m not used to the CI partener.  I don’t’ know him, it’s only Dayo that I know and Dayo has retired.  Hmnn… Oh God!

EDWARD: You’ll have to think of something. We really miss. It is a sad one. We’ll have to come out of it somehow.  If only we can say there is money here but I can’t find. I kept on  disturbing this guy in December and January but  he kept telling me no problem. God, this guy just…

 CBN GOVERNOR: It’s a mess; it’s really a mess.

‘Your Afro Hair Could Benefit From Cannabis Plant’, Sowore Fires Back At Shehu Sani For Kicking Against The Idea

Published

Less then forty-eight hours after Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State announced his visit to Thailand for the purpose of learning more about Cannabis extract development, lots of reactions have continued to trail the idea.

Akeredolu, who is in Thailand along with Col. Muhammad Mustapha Abdallah rtd, the Chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA), are looking into the advantages of Cannabis in the making of food and drugs.

Cannabis extraction and export was first proposed by Omoyele Sowore, the 2019 presidential candidate of the African Action Congress (AAC) during the campaigns.

On Twitter, Senator Shehu Sani, the member representing Kaduna Central Senatorial District in the National Assembly reacted by advising Akeredolu to look into other ideas by partnering other states in the areas agriculture to boost income in Ondo state. 

Senator Sani who tweeted with his official tweeter handle @ShehuSani asked Ondo State Governor Rotimi Akeredolu to jettison the idea of extracting the Cannabis plant. 

“My dear brother Akeredolu, Lagos partner Kebbi for Rice, Pls partner Niger for Beans, Kaduna for Ginger or partner Benue for Yam: Pls leave this Indian Hemp matter for now, Abeg” he tweeted. 

Tweeting immediately, Omoyele Sowore said he was “disappointed” in the Kaduna Senator for kicking against the brilliant idea which had already been put into test in country like Canada and recently in Uganda.

@YeleSowore noted that it was unfortunate Sani has refused to see the opportunity in which the Cannabis extraction help the country adding that it could also help grow his “Afro hair” if legally approved by the government.

“I hate to stand between two Nigerian politicians engaging asinine arguments but i am disappointed in you for this tweet. Have you ever thought of it that when this idea finally gains legal ground your Afro hair could benefit from a locally produced line of Cannabis hair products?

Sowore had on the 5th of September 2019 while proposing the idea said: “We have to start taking care of our weed, igbo, such that we can also contribute to the GDP of the world. Some of the best weed in the world are grown in Ekiti state. I am very serious and people are making billions out of that particular plant that is very potent in Nigeria. We should be focusing on it.” he said.

“Our NDLEA should get the memo in advance that Nigeria would be exporting weed to cure cancer in other parts of the world instead of chasing after people who are growing weed. Whereas, they are not chasing after our politicians who are smoking cocaine in their houses”.

By


Seun Kuti, son of the late Afrobeat legend, Fela Kuti has reacted to Rotimi Akeredolu, Ondo State Governor’s plan to cultivate Cannabis in the state.

Akeredolu and Col. Muhammad Mustapha Abdallah rtd. the chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) had during a visit to Thailand to learn about Cannabis extract development said that they were in the country to see “how can (cannabis) be cultivated for specific purposes and not be abused?”

The Governor tweeted, “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.

“We all know that Ondo State is the hotbed 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.”

On Wednesday, alongside a picture of the Governor’s tweet, Seun Kuti suggested that he might be relocating to Ondo state in the nearest future.

The post read: “Ehn Mr. excellency sir, if u 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, nuff said #getthesax#getmyload!!”
