Drug Abuse: Okowa’s EAC Advises Youth To Stay Clean, Avoid Hard Drugs. …Says Narcotic Drugs Kills Colourful Destiny

Students of Delta State University, Delsu, Abraka and Nigerian Youth in general, have been urged to stay away from the use of hard drugs so as to fulfil destiny.

Executive Assistant to the Governor of Delta State on Communications, and Patron of Wisdom Class of Delsu, Olorogun Barr. Fred Latimore Oghenesivbe, gave the advise on Tuesday 18th May, at the flag off ceremony of Delsu Free Drug awareness campaign and rehabilitation programme, jointly organised by Wisdom Class and Delta State Government through the office of the State Bureau of Orientation.

He noted that hard drug is closely connected to criminal activities, as deviants and law breakers usually get high with drugs before daring to implement their deliberate criminal acts, adding that staying away from hard drugs enhances focus on serious pursuit of academic excellence.

The EACGOV said the Okowa administration has invested heavily on youth vocational training and skills acquisition programmes; YAGEP, STEP, PROJECT GEST and RYSA, wherein over 25,000 persons have benefited directly or indirectly through the Office of State Bureau for Job and Wealth creation.

He advised young graduates and other categories of youth to take advantage of the self employment and empowerment programmes, so as to be self employed through skills acquisition.

The Justice of the Peace, JP, urged Delsu students and Nigerian Youth to mind the company they keep, noting that peer group influence is so crucial that if one associates with deviants and criminals there is the obvious tendency to compromise and yield to negative peer group influence.

“Hard Drug is a destiny killer which is why you must abstain from it completely. There are millions of wasted colourful destiny, due to use of hard drugs. Some died through drug addiction and reckless driving as a result of drug negative impact and also promotes immorality and gross misconduct.

“The major goal of every student is to read hard so as to obtain academic degree certificate, and to make your parents proud. Remain focused on your studies, don’t keep bad company and avoid any kind of relationship with drug addicts and people with questionable character.

“Parents should do more in the area of character moulding, care and attention for their children, because society has attained hyper status, making it difficult for children of nowadays to listen to the voice of reasoning, Oghenesivbe added.
