While addressing the youth in Mushin, during ‘Anti-Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking seminar recently, he inspired and encouraged youth to be useful for themselves and abstained from illicit drugs.
“While growing up, it is very rare to see youth involved in drug abuse. Reverse is the case with what NDLEA publishes every day. And with investigation, It is a pity that lots of youth currently sees drug abuse as a norm. We have to stop the youth as elders. This is our core responsibility as a father. As a role model, we need to continue the crusade that drug abuse and trafficking are illegal”, the famous politician who is campaigning for re-election into the office, Yemi Alii stated.
He promised that this exercise will be an annual seminar to persistently fight Illegal drug abuse and trafficking in Mushin and Lagos generally.
“ I have taken this upon myself as a father and role model to make sure this seminar becomes an annual event, basically to educate youth against drug abuse , illicit trafficking. And for youth to know they are very important in nation building”.
