Drug Abuse: LASG Reiterates Willingness On collaborative Efforts to Curb its Menace.

The Lagos State Government has renewed its committment to curb drug abuse, especially among youths and reduce the damaging effect of the negative habit.

Gov.Sanwo-Olu said his government was taking major steps to tackle drug abuse and would ensure strategic partnership with the Church and NGOs to ensure that people live a better life.

“We are not shying away from our responsibility, drug abuse is something that is ravaging our entire community, we have seen it and we know that it is something that we need to face and face very squarely. As a government, we are building one of the biggest rehabilitation hospital in the Country, we currently constructing  a drug rehabilitation and mental hospital in Ketu Ejirin, in Epe Senatorial District” he said.
Earlier, the Most Rev. Ndukuba commended the Governor for partnering with the Church in the welfare of the people and for rising up to the task of beating Covid-19, and distinguishing himself among his peers.
The Anglican Primate solicited the continued support of the State Government in actualizing the set objectives of the church, particularly as it relates to nation building.
“We have taken seriously, missions that is bible based, Christ-centred and family focused” the Most Reverend Ndukuba explained.
