NGO Reiterates Commitment To Fight Against Drugs Abuse

The Eye Opener Women and Youths Foundation, a Non Governmental organisation (NGO), has  reiterated its commitment to the fight against drug abuse among the youth.

Its President, Mrs Magret Julius, stated this in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday in Kaduna in commemoration of the 2021 World Drug Free Day.

She said that the organisation had organised several campaign programmes to sensitise the youths to the dangers of drug abuse. “We have a strong commitment to save the lives of the younger people, they represent the future of this country. “

Drug abuse is inimical to both the person involved and the society, the inherent dangers are too many to mention,” she said. Julius urged parents to strictly monitor the activities of their children, especially the type of friends they kept.

She urged youths to read more books and watch documentaries that expose the dangers in abusing drugs. “We are currently carrying out house-to-house campaigns to share facts about drugs abuse with parents, the youth and children. “

Infertility, death, body functionality change, crime and violence can all be caused by drug abuse, it is a serious issue,” she said. The foundation’s president also called for stakeholders’ collaboration to educate parents and children about the need to eradicate drug abuse.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN)  reports that World Drug Free Day is annually celebrated on June 26, to promote advocacy against drug abuse in the society. The theme for the 2021 edition of the day is, “Share facts on drugs, save lives”.(NAN)
