About Alhassan Ado Doguwa
The Chief Whip in the Nigerian Assembly belongs to a bygone age. He’s trying to push through harsher sentences for cannabis offenders, including mandatory jail terms to prevent the vulnerable youth from falling prey to the dangers of ‘Indian hemp’. Doguwa should wake up to the reality that Nigeria is already a top consuming and exporting cannabis nation and harness that energy for the good of the nation. He’s standing in the way of billions of dollars of potential legal revenue for his government. He should rather retire to his compound in Kano Province where he can share his medieval views with his four wives and 27 children.
