Nigeria Ranks Highest Trafficking Nation in the World – Shehu Sani
The collapse of education and moral upbringing is responsible for the disconnection between the government and the governed, and depression by the politicians in using young people to achieve their goals – culminating to prime factors that lead to the spread of drug abuse in the society.
This was an assertion by Senator Shehu Sani representing Kaduna State Central in Kaduna, as part of activities to mark the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking celebrated every twenty-sixth of every year as set aside by the United Nations.
He lamented that Nigeria is today ranked one of the highest drugs trafficking nations of the world. The Senator added that, “A day like this is time to raise the level of awareness against drug trafficking,” saying, as public office holders, they have a duty to help the young people with necessary skills and funding to make their lives better.
He reiterated that as government, it also has a duty to help in bringing about an end to the menace, and called on those that involved in drug trafficking to, in the name of their God, stop, as Nigeria is today ranked one of the highest drugs trafficking nations of the world.
Senator Sani opined that drug trafficking has seriously vented the image of Nigeria, destroyed the lives of many young people, deformed the psychological usefulness of many young people, enrolled their hopes and dreams, while it has made the country unsafe.
The Senator, therefore, enjoined people to work hard to clean the society, the country and to mobilize the young people against the odds.
