Federal Government Urged to include Drug Free Education in Curriculum

Meanwhile, the Federal Government has been urged to include drug free education in the country’s education curriculum to enhance youths’ knowledge about hard drugs and their negative consequences.

Commander of the Nigeria Drug Law Enforcement Agency-NDLEA in Anambra State, Sule Momodu made the call in Awka while fielding question from reporters.

He said the country would be better for it, if the youth from early age in school understands the consequences of drug consumption, adding that the stakeholders in the education sector also had major roles to play to reduce the production and use of illicit drug in the society.

He urged parents and government to also formulate programmes that promotes cultural value to eschew ethnicity or religious bigotry which is the panacea to virile nation building and to assist government to ensure the eroding value of Nigeria is restored.
