The team of National Law Drug Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) led by the Lagos State Commander, Calys Alumona yesterday visited the Chairman of NURTW, Lagos State chapter, Alhaji Musiliu Akinsanya (Mc-Oluomo) to sensitize people to desist from drugs and other harmful substances.
The team used the opportunity to enlighten the union members of the negative effects of hard drugs and how harmful it can be to their bodies and brains.
The Lagos State Commander of NDLEA noted that apart from the enlightenment of the NURTW members, they were also there to appoint the Lagos State chairman of the union as an Ambassador on War Against Drug Abuse (WADA).
Commander Alumona urged the union members to emulate their chairman by being decent, and to stop taking harmful substances and other dangerous drugs.
Mc-Oluomo in his reply appreciated the team and the NDLEA
As the chairman, he promised the NDLEA team of his continued efforts towards ensuring the eradication or drastic reduction in the use of drugs amongst his members. He equally said measures are already in place to discipline any member caught misbehaving or projecting the union in negative light due to substance abuse. He disclosed that the ambassadorial appointment will further spur him to do more towards reducing the usage of substance amongst his members and Lagos State large.
The highlight of the visit was the presentation of the Ambassadorial plague to the union chairman by the NDLEA Lagos State Commander.
