The fight against drug abuse and substance consumption might have selected a new phase of focus to torpedo the fast devastating situation amongst youths in Nigeria. This proactive decision was propose by the Abuja Drug Abuse Campaign in a press statement it released today.
The convener of the initiative, Prince UC presented the statement with the need to create a multipurpose vehicle through which the public can be sensitised on the menace of drug and substance abuse in our society.
The Abuja Drug Abuse Campaign unveiled its forthcoming program with the the theme "Drug and Substance Abuse, an emerging and current impediment to national development". The program which commences with a 20km walk will be held at abuja on the 4th of August, following sensitization workshop on the 6th of August holding at Shehu MUSA Yaradua Centre.
According to the statement, the rate of involving elders, youths, children and women is worrisome and must be tackled head long so as to contend this destructive vice especially on our children and women who defines the structure of our nation's future.
The statement uncovered that over 40% of Nigeria youths are either users, abusers, addicts or have become totally dependent on drugs and substance.

However, this bull of rut has chased-on a generation of youths who find solace in drugs.
In a sensitization program conducted by Abuja Drug Abuse Campaign in Katsina state, its team discovered drug abusers, who are currently going through a special rehabilitation program.
Tagwaye Charity Foundation and Elizabeth Jarich foundation, the mother organisers of this fight against drug abuse are optimistic that the fight will be a fruition if it is supported by the government, corporate agencies and well meaning Nigerians.

Drug abuse can never reduce
80 percent of male youth are either on drugs one way or the other
If some1 think of what is happening right now in Nigeria
It is either you keep suffering or find the way out
Unfortunately or fortunately the other way out is drug

The only thing keeping suicide rate in check is drugs, if you know you know, its a necessary evil in this part of the world.

usebog:You know taking drugs is a waste of money, you know its kills you, and you know it doesn't take the stress or pain away. But what you dont know is 80% of Nigerian men taking drugs is a big lie. out of those Nigerian men are fathers, youths and little babies. So get your fact right. The fact you doing it doesn't mean everyone does it, nor does it mean it is right!
If you stressed get a girlfriend or a psychologist to talk to. Go to the park, take a wall, or Find God.

How did Alex manage to make something so official look like a meeting of slay kings and queens?
Anyway sha, it was reported is the main thing. The manner of style doesn't matter.
The "Nigerian" drug problem is a Northen Nigerian problem. They should not drag other regions into it. Most of the people from my region drink heavy and see no sense in taking something meant for sick or ailing individuals.

Endowed595:Speak for yourself
You can't compere some1 on drug with an ordinary person,even if it is #50 you spent on drug,you will definitely see the work
Drug is not taking away your pain and stress away,it is not some kind of miracle but it gives you confidence,moral and makes you reason beyond your normal level of reasoning
Drugs don't kill,I know some 50 to 70 years old man smoking
80% of male youth are on drugs one way or the other,believe it or not,people tends to hide it base on culture shit and all that
And I can beat my chest and say most of the leaders up there shouting all about are also drug abuser
The fact that am doing does not mean it is right or wrong,do what you like,everybody owns his life
And note that not all drug users uses drug because of stress
I have a girlfriend
A phycologists can not take your stress away,a phycologists can only let you know your problem and try to advice you on it SINPLE
a drug will not only let you know your problem.it gives confidence and moral to tackle the problem
God-a myth I was made to believe but not anymore
Once again not all drug users go into drugs because of stress
|Re: Rescue Nigeria Youths From Hard Drugs - Ngo Leads Campaign by Endowed595: 12:12am On Jul 16, 2018|
usebog:I believe everyone has a right to free will, to do what he wants, and be what he wants. But don't call God a myth, the fact you choose not to believe does not mean God doesn't exist. I by education am a scientist, and a little fact is that there are abt 2000 plus parametres for our earth to exist, say, a planet like Jupiter has to exist at its precise location possessing it powerful magnetic field to draw astriods away from the earth. My good sir, tell me there isnt a creator that fashioned it into being. Then you said Drugs help this help that, can you honestly compare the disadvantages of using drugs to the advantages of using drugs? Wld you like your children to be using drugs? Or are u saying the world wld be more productive if everyone was using drugs? I respect you sir. And your right to be who you are. Do cause other to derail because u think ur way is right.

Government's Role in Combating Drug Abuse
Abuse of drugs seems to be the trend for youths especially in Nigeria. Despite the risk factors, youths still engage in such destructive act. Parents and other relevant agencies have tried their best to ensure that drug abuse becomes history, yet it still appears to be on the increase. Now, including the government of the day, what role do you think they can play in putting an end to the trend?
