Asoro admonishes youths to stop drug abuse

.... celebrates International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit trafficking

The Youth Coordinator of Ikorodu West LCDA; Comr Asoro Abubakri Olatunji has admonished youths to shun the use of drug abuse noting that it is mostly the root of crime and criminality.

He noted that drug has become a threat to Nigeria's youth population and also has become a threat to having a sane society. He recalled on the recent incident of Chidinma, a 21 year old undergraduate, who under the influence of drug abuse has become a murderer.

He noted further that, even drug abusers have the capability to commit Gender Based Violence. 

"We have resolved to work closely with National Drug Law And Enforcement Agency -NDLEA on awareness campaign against drug abuse, this will further strengthen our campaign against drug abuse. We would also encourage the agency to arrest where necessary. It is a two way approach: prevention and enforcement of drug laws. Even as we continue to work on our mandate to end Gender Based Violence in Ikorodu West, we have realised that, some of this crime also find its root in Drug Abuse. No doubt, drug abuse has done more evil than good", Comr Asoro said.

While speaking further, he said, "we want to remind you that ending cultism and drug abuse that is prevalent among the youths is one of the pillars of our administration agenda and this was why our first program at assumption of office was a campaign rally against drug abuse. We have done similar campaign in about three hot spots in Ikorodu West, we have also visited law enforcement agencies especially the police in this matter. We would not relent and we would ride on the back of NDLEA to achieve more".

He enjoined all youths to become a peer educator on drug abuse, noting that we have to be our brother's keeper.
