Chairman and Chief Executive of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, Brig. Gen. Mohamed Buba Marwa (Rtd) has asked all tertiary institutions in Nigeria to make drug integrity test an institutional policy for both new and returning students.
This is in furtherance of the fight against drug abuse among Nigerian youths.
Gen. Marwa who made the call at the University of Abuja while launching the ‘drug free university campaign’ also called for a partnership between the NDLEA and the university system to allow the agency set up outposts on campuses to further strengthen the authorities in fighting the scourge.
While commending the management of the University of Abuja for collaborating with NDLEA to organise the launch, he said “the theme, ‘Drug-Free University and Tertiary Institutions,’ is apt and timely as there is no better time than now to combat the drug challenge in the university community and among students.
