According to the Founder/President Silec Initiatives, Sunny Irakpo, the hosting of the Silec initiatives campaign against drug abuse in Nigeria slated for July 24, followed the outcry for collective efforts by religious leaders in the country to use their podium to help address the high level of drug abuse and experimentation amongst youths in the country.
Irapko expressed displeasure over the heightened state of drug use and abuse amongst Nigerian youths, going by the news of over three million bottles of Codeine Cough Syrup been consumed daily by the northern youths, which he said calls for urgent need to salvage the country’s future and the youths from total destruction.
While commending the general overseer, Irakpo reaffirmed the commitment of the initiative in tackling drug abuse, saying his team would continue to do their best in helping to fix Nigeria by fighting “this enemy crippling the economic potentials in our youths.”
