The Nigerian Military School Ex-Boys Association has expressed the willingness of its members to join the ongoing war and advocacy campaigns against the menace of illicit drug trafficking and abuse, especially among Nigerian youths.
This was the solidarity message brought to the National Headquarters of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA in Abuja by some leaders of the group led by their President, Engr. Femi Ikuponiyi when they paid a courtesy visit to the Chairman/CEO of the agency, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa at the weekend.
Ikuponiyi said they were on the visit to identify with Marwa’s strides of accomplishment and vision for the NDLEA as an ex-boy and pride of the ex-boys family. He expressed the willingness of ex-boys to join advocacy campaigns to stem and eradicate the menace of the use of illicit drugs amongst Nigerian youths particularly in areas of intelligence gathering and reportage. He commended Marwa and described him as a pacesetter and an exemplary ambassador of the NMS Ex-Boy.
In his response, Marwa thanked the NMS Ex-Boys for their visit and offer to support the drug war, stressing that such was an indication that the key message of the War Against Drug Abuse, WADA, launched by President Muhammadu Buhari last June is fast achieving its target of mobilising every citizen to take ownership of the battle against the drug scourge.
