Nigeria’s First Lady, Oluremi Tinubu have come out to charge state governments to prioritize the fight against drug abuse to ensure a safe and secure society.

She recently had her say while speaking to the press, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to her, she can only congratulate Buba Marwa and the Nigerian Governors’ Spouses Forum for the two-day training on Drug Prevention Treatment and Care, organised by the NDLEA for spouses of state governors.

She added that as a mother, she understands the profound impact that drug abuse can have on our children’s lives.

Her words, “I commend the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, under the leadership of His Excellency, Brigadier General Buba Marwa (retd.), for organizing this vital training and for your ongoing efforts in combatting drug abuse in Nigeria.

We must recognise that drug abuse is not just a law enforcement issue but a public health crisis that requires a compassionate and multi-faceted response. We must challenge the stigma and discrimination associated with addiction, and foster a culture of empathy, understanding and solidarity towards those struggling with substance use disorders.

As mothers, we understand the profound impact that drug abuse can have on our children’s lives. Therefore, it is incumbent upon us to protect, nurture, and guide them toward a future free from the shackles of addiction. As leaders in your respective states, you wield a unique platform to drive meaningful change.

The role of Governors’ spouses in combating drug abuse cannot be overstated. Through advocacy, we can ensure access to prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation services for those affected by addiction

However, our efforts must not end with this training. We must translate knowledge into action, collaborating with stakeholders such as the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, other government agencies, civil society organizations, healthcare providers, educators, and students. Together, we can implement evidence-based strategies for prevention, early intervention, and holistic treatment approaches.”
