NDLEA Commander Charges School Principals On War Against Drug Abuse


Commander of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) in Rivers State, Ahmed Mamuda, on Wednesday, charged secondary school principals with educating their students about the prevention and consequences of drug addiction.

Mamuda gave the charge at the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT) during a town hall meeting arranged by the state agency for secondary school principals.

The commander stated that the event, titled “Roles of Principals in Combating Drug Menace in Schools”, was crucial in the war against drug misuse.

Mamuda said the program’s goal was to educate administrators and students about the effects of drug misuse and how to deal with them.

He revealed that another goal of the programme was to raise awareness about new emergent drug usage, such as balloon drugs or young people injecting drugs into soft beverages.

Mamuda remarked that the principals’ sensitization through the War Against Drug Abuse (WADA) fit into their various responsibilities in steering the course toward a safer and healthier educational environment.

The commander underlined their advocacy for leadership and dedication to establishing a culture that would guide pupils against the appearance of the substances.

Mamuda stressed that secondary school administration was a major stakeholder in both the conduct and intellectual development of young people.
